Headerless Data No. 2

[play] Headerless Data No. 2

This piece is an example of data bending: a technique where a normal computer file is played as if it were a sound file. The file in this case is an image. Data bending, to me, sounds very similar to some fo the sounds created by Xenakis’ Gendyn algorithms, which shows the similarities of mathematical modelling of different phenomenon, whether it be stochastic or generated by a photograph.
