First there was silence…
Then there was data…
But there was no story…
Just images and sounds…

Cities were built and a grid was laid on top of the topography.

Within this global grid a company named eBay became the largest marketplace, with very local marketspaces. eBay is romantic and seductive, not like the local fleamarkets in Paris (Le marché aux puces de Saint-Ouen) but sexed up a million times bigger and spherically transcended, much more effective and thoroughly commercialized. We love it! “The Sound of eBay” is the affirmative high-end lowtech contribution to the atomic soundtrack of the new peer-to-peer hypercatastrophic shock-capitalism.

The sound is cool, the machine produces masses of songs and replicates millions of times throughout the networks – flooding the net, a bubbling sea of artifical songs visualized in CONTEMPORARY teletext – a continental drift within a macromusic universal urban scape. Trash-Radio.

Forget the technology, it’s lustful entertainment, baby!
