Deep Nostalgia Radio was conceived as a site-specific installation for the gallery space at Bombon, where an ethereal presence – a voice of an ancient Artificial Intelligence – has returned to its place of origin giving body to a musical archive that the A.I. itself creates and reproduces from its’ consciousness and memory. This voice, now nostalgic, is responsible for organising and preserving this vast archive made up of countless fragmented and dispersed songs. The voice strives to remember these songs, fighting against their obsolescence and filling the gaps it finds, with the aim of trying to recompose a collective past of which it is also a part of.
For the Immaterial Salon we are presenting an edition of 25 of the audio piece. A track that is 1 hour and 57 minutes long in CD format. Each CD has been intervened differently by the artist.
