Stereo remix of the original 8-channel work that used 4 speakers under the ceiling and 4 on the floor to allow for 3-dimensional spatialization.
“Conflict Of Interest” is a sonification of my own personal genetic analysis, that consisted of approx. 600,000 lines of genetic variations, then cross-referenced with approx. 150,000 research articles from publicly available databases. Data that is not associated with health issues, but with “identity” as a largely arbitrary, socially and historically constructed concept, is coming up at unexpected places, disrupts the performance and pushes the piece in a new direction. Originally written for the Endangered Guitar project and premiered at Festival Sonifications – Audible Datastreams in Berlin in October 2017, the excerpt above, a version for laptop and MYO armband, was premiered at Hunter College May 2018.http://tammen.org/conflict-...
