A sound art composition about the use of viral media to bypass the war on drugs in Mexico

Warscape Sonata is a sound art production that remixes information related to the current 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 using GNU/Linux software to extract sound archives which are then used to create a noise musical structure that places aesthetic emphasis on the media aspect of the war.

This sound art composition also highlights the way in which Mexico’s civilian population experiments with information technologies to confront propaganda, social control and fear.

This social experiment with mass media is generating new forms of pop culture charaterized by intense human drama.

Warscape Sonata is a work in progress by Vlax, a digital artist and multimedia journalist based in Southern Mexico.

We believe that new cultural an economic spheres can be generated promoting collective returns in favor of Free Culture and social development.
Warscape Sonata is based in collective return
