The Mutant Data Orchestra rewires the products of our digital society to expose the hidden agents within. Through live circuit modification of digital answering machines, cheap digital toys and sound instruments the performers manipulate the data pathways and exert influence on their sound production without the use of a conventional software interface. Sonified data is manipulated through added interfaces and network capabilities providing new chip to chip connections within and among individual machines. Digital memory does have a sound and the Mutant Data Orchestra exploits this fact.
