Eavesdrop presents outstanding Berlin-based and international contemporary electronic music that are abstract, experimental and emotionally affecting.

About

EAVESDROP brings together a group of adventurous composer/performers whose practices span a diversity of inter-related contemporary tendencies. These include electro-acoustic vocal deconstructions, field-recording, the musical deployment of digital algorithms, and the sonification of online surveillance data. (in the guise of a not-to-be-missed performance by the ‘browser ensemble’).

EAVESDROP speaks to our contemporary sonic environments whether natural, architectural or virtual. The festival challenges and invites listeners to consider, from multiple perspectives, new social and technical developments in international music culture. It explores how digital and online cultures have fundamentally altered how we perceive and experience both music and the world.

November 16th

Norwegian artist Silje Nes creates a site specific installation especially for the EAVESDROP festival that explores the blurred boundaries between human-made creations and natural living processes.

The Browser Ensemble literally browse online, utilising the Listening Back browser plug-in to translate internet tracking cookies in sound. Named after the computer science term “magic cookie” internet cookies are commonly used for data profiling by advertising, corporations and governments, by placing a small file on the user’s computer. The relative invisibility of digital surveillance, and the proliferation of capitalist modes of online surveillance has both intensified and rendered ambivalent our relationships to being surveyed. Sound will provide a means for listening back to some of the imperceptible surveillance infrastructures that form our habitual online browsing.
