  23 04 - 26 04 1998 / Vienna

Installed in front of Vienna's opera house, a freight container is transformed into a psychogeographical feedback device. Listeners operate the device via email addresses and URLs. The sound generated from texts is converted to midi information, fed into an installation of synthesizer, drum machines and samplers at Public Netbase, where it is mixed, and is then retransmitted to the container as a Real Audio stream.

The Society of Unknowns has established sound generation as a collective cultural production. It uses noise for non-determined and uncontrollable possibilities, and to confirm the limits of words.

The London-based artist collective explores the terrifying realization that all information can be transformed into noise.
