Pure Capital is a live performance based on The Storm That Shelters... installation.
The work consists of bespoke software which is
entirely driven by a real time market data.
Visual data-structures and clouds of sound grains deliver the final aesthetic experience.
Pure Data, which is lingua franca of computer music and sound art, is deliberately used in a way that blurs a distinction between trading instruments and those belonging to a radical music. The software implements many financial indicators well known from exchange markets.
Pure Capital not only brings viewers closer to volatile and unpredictable financial phenomenon but also offers phenomenological insights into a nature of the economic abstraction and poses questions concerning cultural and socioeconomic potentiality of an access to financial data.
