Sounding Machine’s Ecologies
Slow Down is an artistic research that problematizes the dominant technological perspective based on mechanical reproductivity and replacement. It proposes to re-think technology from a sonic sensibility shaped by a multiplicity of intertwined sonic practices, searching through diverse realms and scales an articulation of locality.
It is a research that, from a sonic sensibility, delves into questions such as, How does an ecology of machines sound? Or in more detail, How local experiences inform the technical relations we could establish with machines once we recognize those agencies as something beyond the externalization of human thought? Are we able to make a sound from such relations and are we able to know such relations by listening? Do sonic practices have been dealing with such possibilities the whole time?
Machine Ecology #1 is its first emanation, an effort to evocate
an ecology where humans, machines and natures relate through self-organized structures and processes
