Electromagnetic Sound Art – Disinformation + Various Artists – “Stargate” + “Ghost Shells”

January 24, 2023

Disinformation “Fire in the Eye” – “Painting with Electricity” – Joe Banks © 2004

The science fiction author J.G. Ballard described the “the dark intervals between the stars” as “a continuously flickering field of light, a gigantic phosphorescent ocean, filled with the vibrating pulses of electromagnetic communication pathways”. J.G. Ballard also described how “a huge volume of radio signals reach this planet”, and how “the hope remains that… we will decode them, and find… a spontaneously generated choral music, a naive electromagnetic architecture”, revealing “the primitive syntax of a philosophical system… as reassuring as the pattern of waves on a beach”.
