Warscape Sonata is a radio art production that remixes information related to the drug war in Mexico.
RSS news channels, microblogging hashtags, and viral videos are used as sources for an electronic registry of the historic moment of militarized Mexico. The information obtained from these sources is manipulated by software to extract sound archives which are then used to create a radio production that places aesthetic emphasis on the media aspect of the war.
Warscape Sonata also highlights the way in which Mexico’s civilian population experiments with information technologies to confront propaganda, social control and fear.
The Warscape Sonata radio piece is based on following proceses: Hashtag Bot, Shootgun Beat and Mashup. Details of this creative path is at the site.
