Close to the Machine: Composing Digital Materiality through a Sonic Archive Practice
London College of Communication

How can an archive of sounds function as a tool for composition? How do we record the sounds of digital material? How have the sounds produced by computing changed over time? How does our sensory perception of computing within our environment change over time? How do we record the relationship between digital material and ourselves?
