    What is ‘The Cloud’ and how is it affecting our lives? The People's Cloud is a project investigating the acoustic ecology and impact of cloud computing on the lives of those who use it, the places it is physically located in and the people who work to maintain it. Turbulence in the Chamber explores the inner workings of The Cloud. As digital data permeates the air like dust in the wind, the piece explores the claustrophobic atmosphere inside the home of the internet; the modern Data Centre. The composition of sound in the piece serves as a stifling electroacoustic transmission that envelops the listener with mechanical chatter and cyclical hum. The source audio has been carefully created, exclusively utilising audio captured inside the small data centre facility that the imagery depicts. The piece is part of a large site-specific installation at the Birmingham Conservatoire (UK), with the musical composition designed for six channel playback. It has been condensed to stereo for this video. Visit www.thepeoplescloud.org for further information

    • DC1 – Lighting up the Information Superhighway

      What is ‘The Cloud’ and how is it affecting our lives? The Cloud is more than Air and Water (CMTAW) is a project investigating the acoustic ecology and impact of cloud computing on the lives of those who use it, the places it is physically located in and the people who work to maintain it. Lighting up the Information Superhighway examines the culture in the often secretive world of data centre’s to use high volumes of LED’s as both a notification tool and to make data centres attractive environments. A quick study of commercial videos and stock imagery of data centres demonstrates a high volume of LED’s on display that are ironically combined with information about high security and how only a very limited number of people ever get to access the server racks themselves. LED-lamps are low-emission materials that are often used in excess for no major gain to the functionality of the otherwise noisy and empty world of the data centre. As the lights flicker, the HVAC and cooling systems continue to whirr, producing the oppressive sonic environment of the data centre, the hum and whirr of The Real-Cloud. The composition of the sound in the piece is sourced from the very data centre that the imagery depicts. That of the whirring and crunching of hard drives and spinning and sucking of HVAC air conditioning systems cooling the rows of computer processors that house the brains of the cloud. An automatic door opens and closes as an engineer approaches the rack space, the beep from a small notification buzzer calls out intermittently. The piece is part of a large site-specific installation at the Birmingham Conservatoire (UK), with the musical composition designed for six channel playback. It has been condensed to stereo for this video. All material developed by Matt Parker, audio produced using Ableton Live 9 Suite, Max/MSP/Jitter, Vizzable, VModule and Adobe After Effects.

          • DC2 - Hot Swap Until I Die

            What is ‘The Cloud’ and how is it affecting our lives? The Cloud is more than Air and Water (CMTAW) is a project investigating the acoustic ecology and impact of cloud computing on the lives of those who use it, the places it is physically located in and the people who work to maintain it. Hot Swap Until I Die investigates the movement of air in and out of the data center. It enters the system through a sophisticated HVAC system, and feeds the modular rows of individual racks within the space, cooling the mechanics and optimising performance. Whilst recording the acoustics of a particular data center, I noticed an individual rack beeping in the distance. Solitary, calling out for someone to attend to it, take care of it, to make it functional again... but nobody came. When the air stops, the system crashes and sparks begin to fly. The rapid response gas operated fire suppression system sits idly beside the rack space, dormant but waiting for a sign to smother the space. The source audio has been carefully created, exclusively utilising audio captured inside the small data center facility that the imagery depicts. The piece is part of a large site-specific installation at the Birmingham Conservatoire (UK), with the musical composition designed for 6.1 playback. It has been condensed to stereo for this video.
