pxp stands for probably lxst pxp

tats=3d94liche-chaos was the title of pxp's first and only ever live appearance on kind invitation by Lampo, Chicago, USA, Nov. 2003.

this one is special

it is a cut of the original line recording that is unedited apart from removing a few minutes of silent reconfiguration pauses. track splits were chosen by human expert judgement based on previous aubiocut analyses.

there are three pieces / instruments on feature in the set. the first one is the packet-player. packet-player consists of packet sniffers running on a few network nodes and an audification instrument translating the packet metadata into sound. this comprises the first half of the recording.

second instrument is a voice synth that is equally controlled in a data-driven manner grabbing pieces of text from different bits of network flow and state information.

third piece is a physical modeling fest taking you through a sparse and peculiar harmonic landscape with live waveguide reconfiguration.

the set ends with a wavescrubbing drone piece.

the performance also consisted of a full video track which was equally synced in real time to live network event data, recording missing though.

entire setup leans heavily on work done previously with farmersmanual and Gullibloon. stay tuned for more on this angle.

farmersmanual is a self-generating memeplex lazily self-organised around the enterprise of doped-out electronics. Since 1996 it has been evolving as a subsurface autopoetic process with erratic overt activity consistently transmitting a unique quality of pathology and beauty skimming the bow-wave of mainstream aesthetics.
