"I always wondered what kind of sound would be heard whilst on its journey when you either send or receive an e-mail or transfer data across a Network.
The idea first presented itself when an IT friend of mine was chatting about his workplace and that I should pop along one day and record some of the sounds . Not wanting to let the opportunity pass me by, I spend a day, armed with a number of recording tools sitting in an enormous network server room.
The final piece is comprised from 16 different servers, and from 1200 different ports, collecting close to 16,000 sounds . The first section of the piece are the sounds heard when the data was being 'Sent' and the second half of the piece is the perceived sound of the data being 'Received'. Markus Jones"
