The Network Ensemble – Device to sonically uncover and amplify the invisible territory of networks

Created by Oliver Smith and Francesco Tacchini studying for an MA in Information Experience Design at the Royal College of Art in London, The Network Ensemble is a tool to sonically uncover and amplify the invisible territory of the networks that sit between our offline and online experiences.

The networks that connect us also surround us, becoming a permanent layer in our everyday environment, a man-made natural force with its own nature and accompanying mystique. It is this force to which the Network Ensemble responds, converting the invisible, airborne communications infrastructure into a sonic experience. The sounds of the ensemble are in constant flux: the external peripherals form an autonomous orchestra, a sonification of slices of the local network layer, changing according to their own inherent logic but providing a melodic representation of the wider network topology.
