electrosmog variations (2015)

by kristen roos



My electrosmog work involves using a high frequency receiver to capture sounds produced by wireless phones, wifi routers, microwaves, and other electronic devices that use the 2.4GHz band.

What’s unique about this band is that it is used to transmit information and cook food. It’s a frequency that we have around us in our homes, workplaces and public spaces because of the sheer amount of wireless devices we use that emit this frequency. 2.4 GHz is in most people’s lives in North America and Western Europe continuously, twenty-four hours a day.

Electrosmog Variations combines field recordings and recordings of live performances in Vancouver, The Hague, Vienna, Graz and Chicago.

Special thanks to Radius, Chicago for an amazing space to perform and record in.
