The pieces on this album were created using a specially designed system code-named “Habitat”. Autonomous artificial agents feed on live and prepared sound and vision, excreting their own mutated variations which are then collected and presented for listener edification. The process is the culmination of combined research by Paul and Lloyd in the construction of a live electro-acoustic audiovisual engine that draws from both academic and underground practices. All material presented was originally generated live and has been edited only to remove fatty excesses.

Mark Brown

Guest Programmer
Mark Brown (Sydney)

Mark Brown is a Sydney based sound, installation and photo media artist exploring the phenomenology of space, architecture and acoustic atmospherics. Brown’s practice has evolved into a poetic response to site, critiquing the history and function of architecture by documenting and making manifest unseen and unheard phenomena in space. This playlist maps a trajectory through strategies in the creation of sound composition and music derived from field recordings, sampling, artist made instruments and meta-generative techniques.



DJ Olive

Guest Programmer
DJ Olive (USA)

DJ Olive is known for many sounds, from beats to sleep to avant-turntablism. In the early 90’s he was an active member of the infamous Williamsburg scene, producing ambient events throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan. He was a founding member of We™, one of the most influential electronic acts to emerge from the U.S. scene in the ninties. As a joke, he gave birth to the term illbient and has been credited with founding the illbient movement.

DJ Olive has prepared a special podcast for ELEVENELEVEN, the TITICACA BBQ MIX, a fun radio piece with friends. Enjoy!
