Introduces the concepts and sites that make up The Fragmented Orchestra, a nationwide sound installation based on the natural rhythms of the human cortex, and the PRS Foundation's New Music Award Winner for 2009. I was honoured to be asked to develop, engineer and maintain the network infrastructure that underlies the project, which, given that it spanned 25 geographical locations separated by 10,000km of internet cabling, and had to be running 24/7, inevitably turned out to be no mean feat.
The Fragmented Orchestra was installed in Liverpool's FACT gallery from 12/2008 - 02/2009. I was asked to create this video, which gives a quick guided tour of its various elements.
