performance of searchsongs by erik borgir on cello. april 16, 2008 at the "Literaturhaus Stuttgart". searchsongs is a work of AND-OR (René Bauer, Beat Suter) and Johannes Auer, 2007.
searchsongs captures the stream of words of a live search. This stream of words might be understood as an expression of collective desire, as the net's melody of yearning, which is played by thousands of people, who at any moment try to reach the desired by means of a search engine. This melody of yearning is made audible by SearchSongs.
words contain playable tones of the musical notation system (c, d, e, f, g, a, h, c, fis, ces ...). on one side searchsongs' web interface shows the stream of words of the live search, on the other side there are lines of musical notes below which transform playable letters in musical notes. non-playable letters define the length of a tone. see: http://www.and-or.ch/searchsongs/
