New unlimited release: UBERMORGEN.COM && Nussbaumer’s “1001 Songs of eBay”

1001 Songs of eBay
Crónica is delighted to present the “1001 Songs of eBay”, 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.

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

“The Sound of eBay” is an UBERMORGEN.COM project with Stefan Nussbaumer, online at since July 2008. Using eBay user data, The Sound of eBay generates unique songs. By simply entering any eBay username and clicking “generate”, 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.

1001 Songs of eBay
“The Sound of eBay” transforms a role-model of individual commodities market in an “ARTitude” 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 Artwork

The Limited counterparts to “1001 Songs of eBay” are “The Sound of eBay — Do you know who the father is?” and “The Sound of eBay – It’s getting big?”, two woodcuts on paper issued by Black Box Gallery Copenhagen and also offered directly by Crónica. For ordering, please see this page.
