a statement on Facebook’s ability to takeover peoples lives and how much of a black hole it can be for most people.
Facebook has currently found its place in the lives of all people today and it continues to serve as one of the biggest distractions and deterrents of productivity. Not to mention privacy issues and its ability to sell our information and content without our permission and prior knowledge it is definitely growing to be one of the powerful capitalist platforms and forms of social conditioning, control and programming. most commonly known as a social network but should be more appropriately labelled a anti social network. this is an invitation to revisit and rediscover life offline.
This piece was created from a 2 hour screen recording of a facebook interaction of myself creating a facebook event page and crowdsourcing for memes and input for this exact composition.
Using a built in mic to capture the sounds of the user typing and using a screenflow app to record the sounds from the internal soundcard I was able to compose this piece using only the sounds of the internet and facebook call it some kind of musique concrete or internet concrete if u please.
