-DATA_connection- by DEMOLECULARISATION (jérôme and jf Blanquet)
SONIC PROTEST festival, april 15 at La Générale Parmentier/Paris
-DATA_connection-, like the title of the film -french connection- by William Friedkin, DATA traffic!

_ With prepared audio tapes of encoded texts and a setup of tape players , Jean-francois Blanquet mixes and composes a sound piece with the different sonorities of code, which still contain meaning.
The texts produced by Jean-François Blanquet are about a second civilization which took place next to ours in the digital universe.While the music code is built and evolves, Jérôme Blanquet receives the audio stream using computers to decode its textual substance. From machines, texts emerge in video stream directly re-arranged with mixers creating an interpretation of the moment.
The public is immersed in a song of digital code while attending the progressive apparition in the video of part of the meaning contained in this stream. Thus, we have a sound composition in the making whose meaning is carried by the sounds, is decoded and then re- arranged live.
This creates an experience in the continuity of the cut-up processes.The result is projected with a beamer and then directly recorded by a VCR on a single VHS tape.

LogforData is an audio tape composed of several audio coding protocols extracted from a 56k modem, FAX as well as personal computers from the 1980’s.
This audio data also contains several texts from online secure conversations between several members of an IRC (chat) channel.
The decoded texts give us a glimpse into the existence of digital entities, a pure data ecosystem, a world where information has mutated towards an independent life form. A second civilization is built next to human civilization, and counter-powers already appear in the ‘ system ‘ .
The cassette object is itself part of the coding, to access the textual content of the cassette, it must be put in place: the cassette + the tape player + cables + computer + The devices is the key of the encryption key.
