Created by London-based musical duo the Network Ensemble, Selected Network Studies is a series of audiovisual pieces created using network data collected from a number of locations across London, Berlin and Rome. It is released as limited edition UV-printed, vacuum-sealed mylar package containing a 2GB SD Card with one hour of video material and 45 minutes of sound material.
Selected Network Studies contains mastered recordings of two performances carried out by the Network Ensemble in London and Berlin, and nine audiovisual pieces created with network data collected from a number of locations across London and Rome. The locations are of network-infrastructural importance: from places in which communications intersect with structures of power, to spaces where one might not ordinarily consider the network to be present. Airports and airplanes, embassies, the Vatican, to name a few. Visual and written documentation of both the hardware and software built for network exploration is included, alongside details of the data collection and performance sites.
