Browser Chance Music (BCM) creates a space for a radically different relationship between user and software. Activating this audiovisual system with your own smartphone gives a sonic and visual presence to the evanescent and imperceptible internet activity that emanates from an object which is often quite personal, but largely unknown. Defamiliarizing the smartphone and revealing the aesthetics of its operation opens the doors to a new relationship with our constant companion.
BCM is a collaboration between CASTOR/KTH (Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm) and KMH (Royal College of Music, Stockholm) involving the re|thread collective together with Henrik Frisk, professor of music at KMH, and funded by NAVET.
This installation was made by the software art collective re|thread consisting of Erik Natanael Gustafsson, Nadia Campo Woytuk and Benoit Baudry in collaboration with Henrik Frisk, professor of music at KMH, and funded by NAVET. More information and resources on this and other re|thread projects can be found on the re|thread webpage.
