INFINITE NEWSFEED

Infinite News Feed is a generative sound art piece that reads the news aloud as lyrics to an algorithmically-generated musical score. Software written by the artist pulls the day’s headlines from the New York Times API, converts them to speech, and then composes a droning musical accompaniment, all in real-time.

Presented as a backdrop to the installation piece Something Something National Conversation (In 2 Characters Or Less) in the exhibition Art & Inactivism, the exhibition becomes a machine opera of infinite duration, giving dramatic representation to the ways we consume — and engage with — the discursive world around us.
