CrÃ³nica is delighted to present the â€œ1001 Songs of eBayâ€, its longest ever Unlimited Release, running to a total of 2 days, 3 hours, 41 minutes and 26 seconds, or over 4 GB of free to download generative funkiness.
â€œForget the technology,
itâ€™s lustful entertainment, baby!â€
â€œThe Sound of eBayâ€ is an UBERMORGEN.COM project with Stefan Nussbaumer, online at www.sound-of-ebay.com since July 2008. Using eBay user data, The Sound of eBay generates unique songs. By simply entering any eBay username and clicking â€œgenerateâ€, the robots sprawl out into the net to collect data, bringing it back to the SC3 Supercollider sound-generation engine. The complex software-machine starts generating a score-file which is then transformed into a unique song.
â€œThe Sound of eBayâ€ transforms a role-model of individual commodities market in an â€œARTitudeâ€ of robotic configurations and strings, swapping personalized and compositional business dreams with sound designs from secure client accounting. Using the concept of creative destruction, this entertainment-aggregation is tuning in a mind-blowing cutup, pushing the contemporary lifestyles over the edge and combines it with transformable delays of post-realistic business-analysis.
The Limited counterparts to â€œ1001 Songs of eBayâ€ are â€œThe Sound of eBay â€” Do you know who the father is?â€ and â€œThe Sound of eBay – Itâ€™s getting big?â€, two woodcuts on paper issued by Black Box Gallery Copenhagen and also offered directly by CrÃ³nica. For ordering, please see this page.
A lot of hard work is invested in these releases and in CrÃ³nicaâ€™s operations. We do not believe in DRM and we certainly donâ€™t want to create any barriers between you and our releases, so, all of the Unlimited Releases will be free to download, but if you can, please consider to leave us a small donation for the benefit of both artists and label. Donâ€™t forget to leave us your address, so that we can send you a thank you postcard in return.
