Disquiet / 2014

The typical digital recording is a compressed version of a larger range of audible sound. This compression is the outcome of an industrial logic of speed and economy, and based on the scientific management of sensory perception. Using songs that thematize loss, disappearance or technological destruction, Disquiet takes the ‘junk’ sounds that have been erased through the digitization of music and reorganizes them into a multi track soundscape.
