Dearz

Usually i am lurking, i aint no curator, but i am interested
in the discussions, and from time to time i feel the urge to
send something in, like right now.. hope it is not off-topic
or too pushy or self-promo...

We (UBERMORGEN.COM) have released our latest project
"The Sound of eBay" - we generate songs from eBay user
data.. - with two pre-release installations - one in Mexico-City
at last years TransitionMX festival - an straight audio installation,
and one in Madrid this May at El Aguila Exhibition Space,
"Les Rencontres Internationales" exhibition.

The Madrid exhibition was an AV-Installation with an online-
terminal for users to directly put in their eBay accounts and
get the songs from their eBay-data into the black box, where
the visuals (by generative artist LIA) were on display along
with the songs...

The sound was very fat and loud, and the terminal inside was
disturbing the cleanness of the projection.. so for the next
installation we will have the terminal in front of the blackbox,
actually it could be anywhere in the exhibition... - sorry no
installation imgs, too dark/fast moving... here a link to the
visuals and songs that were playing in the black box:

Attached i send you a freestyle theory-text "THE BIZARRE
BAZAR" by theorycoder Grischinka Teufl about the project
and about the EKMRZ-Trilogy (EKMRZ stands for e-commerce)
the first two projects were  1. GWEI- Google Will Eat Itself
http://www.gwei.org and  2. Amazon Noir - The Big Book Crime
http://www.amazon-noir.com

additionally, here a link to the press-release, explaining the
project in brief and giving some background infos...

"THE SOUND OF EBAY"
Artists: UBERMORGEN.COM / Author: Grischinka Teufl


THE BIZARRE BAZAR:

"Ebay" is trying to be the accountant of an open business-place by  
initializing a lucid dream of endless credibility to the users. The  
big picture shows a romantic bazaar of richness and goods, a place  
where prices are made by bargaining the value of assembled things.  
Neatly structured in boxes and frames, tagged by numbers, aligned and  
approached by magical opponents of adorable displays. The imagery of  
trade appears in its loveliest form of exchange, accompanied by  
convenient environments and flattering sounds, to please the  
purchaser with the charm of wealth and surplus. The participation in  
creating substantial transactions, offers everyone a part-time  
approach in common sensed gold-rushes, fevered by the obsession of  
king-sized earnings, selling off things and non-things. Work becomes  
the pleasure of bidding and rating, writing histories of reputation  
within the exiting game-play of liquefied vividness and sampled  
repetition of digital "(algo-)rhythmic".

THE PIRATES OF EBAY:

As part of their sustainable trilogy the critical level of  
"UBERMORGEN.COM"s media-integrated storytelling has reached the  
coastline of business-island "Ebay". Braking the waves of cyber- 
spaced e-commerce tsunamis by transforming singular binary micro- 
transactions of homo oeconomicus into auditive vortexes and granular  
compositions by pirating privacy. An army

of wiredrawn networkbots has been injected into vireal complexity by  
the hackers of hidden imaginaries. Conducting a maniac model of  
quantitative signals and preparing a groovy listening comprehension  
for unmarked patterns of sound-full recognition. Off the record ,  
this time they are transforming a rolemodel of individual selling and  
buying behavior into an "ARTtitude" of robotic configurations and  
strings by swapping personalized and compositional business-dreams  
with hitpotentized sound-designs from secure client-accountability.  
Using the concept of creative destruction this entertainment- 
aggregation is tuning in a mind-blowing cutup of eclectic data-jams,  
pushing the contemporary mediamorph lifestyles over the edge and  
combines it with transformable delays of post-realistic business- 
analyses. It mashes up the proposition of economical interest with  
the joy of multifactorial abstraction-vectorizations to push the one- 
dimensional programming of bubble-ideologists into a new form of user- 
generated massmusic-movement. By discovering this undetected  
entropolis, the colonization of data-hungry network-crawlers and  
blackboxed info-transformers is feeding a suspicious synaesthesia  
within the neatly structured columns of profit-orientated socio- 
technological networks.

ENJOYING CLICKONOMICS

"The Sound of Ebay" enables a twisted plot of alternate click- 
dealership and a vast amount of entertainment value. The whitelabeled  
edition of blackboxed computation is presenting diametral economic  
controversies of our times within a model of bleeding edge, upside- 
down and visionary sub-culture. To ground this parameters within an  
abstraction-level of artificial beta-testing, the unlikelyhood of  
economic inexplicability is reduced to its maximum, by providing an  
outlandish and inspiring interface of presumable audio-visual data- 
recordings. Through this concern no more thinking and intellectual  
resistance is announced, the approach is to sit back  letting the  
bots do the dirty work and finally listen to the super-personalized  
collection of unauthorized material from automated sound-aggregation,  
directly developed out of highly sensitive, inaccessible and  
unreachable data.
