The Robin Hood of Sound
UBIQ, short for ubiquitous, is an anonymous sound artist. His work includes public performances, or “Soundings,” in which he uses existing sound infrastructures to give voice to new media technologies.
UBIQ's works call upon the public to recognize and accept the sounds of connectivity as symbols of our growing entanglement with new communication and technology infrastructures. He is asking us to listen. And in the still silence that follows his Soundings, UBIQ is asking us to consider the new technologies in our lives. He is asking us to pause, and consider how we, not as individuals, but as a society, can harmonize, not with our personal machines, but the powerful digital infrastructures we have created.
