A study in noise as parasite: laser engravings on self destuctive acrylic records.

A translation of digital sound into vectors, to laser engravings on acrylic, and back to sound again. A looping parasite is born, a being in-between, an interrupting force. The same parasite that Metzger met at South Bank. Or what Basinski encountered on a rooftop. When sonic agency is in hands of material forces, the mediation becomes a living organism – a generative system, conducted, but not entirely in control by its own creator.
