Jasmine Guffond, Jakob Schauer


Jasmine Guffond is a sound artist and composer working at the interface of social, political and technical infrastructures.

Her practice spans live performance, recording, sound installation and custom made browser plug-in. Through the sonification of data she addresses the potential for sound to engage with contemporary political questions. Recent projects employed digital technologies, sonification and the aesthetisation of data as a means of fostering discussion around contemporary surveillance technologies as well as producing experimental audio works.
