More Info

With the obsolescence of storing and reproducing media devices, a lot of information becomes unavailable and inaccessible but does it mean it has ceased to exist as information? What happens with a film whose last copy is in Beta tape when it can no longer be reproduced?

On the second semester of 2014 Bruno Duplant and David Vlez started to dialogue about this subject and decided to compose a piece that points out to these questions presenting them as the construction of a place. We usually figure out that a place and the objects in it produce the sounds that we listen in there but in sound composition for the listener, the sounds build a place and the things inside it, a place that he inhabits with his imagination.

The two artists selected to work with sounds stored in media that is no longer available like VHS, Beta, floppy discs, zip drives, laser disc..etc media that is becoming less and less accessible and that at one point could be unable to reproduce.

Duplant and Vlez were expecting that these sounds could build a place that were eerie and bleak, not really pleasant and where the listener could probably feel vigilant and uncomfortable as if in presence of something that he wont perceive but that is actually there.
