The Virus

The Virus 17:58


In May 2000 my computer, among many others, got infected with the "I love you" virus. A few months later, I purchased my first Mac Lombard PowerBook G3 and was finally able to work again. After a discussion with Zbigniew Karkwoski (RIP) on how to use raw data with various software. I decided to use the data from that virus to make an album. I imported it as a raw file into Photoshop and created around 50 different files by applying various visual filters and settings, I then re-exported the files in raw format and opened them in a sound software called Peak to re-export them as .wav files.

This piece is the result of this experiment.
