Jasmine Guffond: Microphone Permission

1. Product Details

Editions Mego release the new album by Australian producer Jasmine Guffond. Developed over a two-year period Microphone Permission is an unsettling musical journey utilizing contemporary tools of communication to display Guffonds ongoing research into online surveillance and sound as a method of investigation. Source material on Microphone Permission are from various projects Guffond has been working on a commission to sonify the data of the city of Melbourne a dance performance about the future sounds of an extinct forest an installation that sonifies Twitter meta data in real time a job as a composer for a theater work about music and feminism by five young female identifying performers in Western Sydney and a site specific installation at the Linachtalsperre dam that employed the harmonic frequencies of electric currents. The results are a stark brooding disorientating journey into a paranoid musical field that sits somewhere between ambient club music and a dystopian soundtrack. Elements of techno classical music and sound art form a dark intriguing masterwork that questions the nature of invasive algorithmic and computational listening practices. For example Microphone Permission refers to the consent we routinely give when installing various apps onto our smart devices. Inspired by a 2018 scandal in which fans of Spains most popular soccer team were effectively turned into unwitting spies by granting the La Liga application microphone permission. No matter which make or model all smart devices are built with a microphone that is by default forever listening. Listening in these situations often takes on an algorithmic form that enables tech developers to bypass public response to what is intuitively considered invasive practice that is traditional modes of eavesdropping such as using the microphone to listen and record audio. Composed recorded and produced by Jasmine Guffond. Image by Ilan Katin layout by Nik Void.
