Artist Statement:


    Adrift in the modern world, the new millennial citizen is held captive by technology whose slightest whim can fell empires (or inspire fits). Set upon by the digital hegemony, s/he finds the bit-wise facility of Turing’s and Babbage’s enfant terrible far too persuasive. This short piece arose out of an exercise to create a non-traditional countdown for a video reel. The actual countdown takes place sonically, descending from an octave interval to a major 2nd, while the digital video provides the title’s analog – humanity turning to noise.
