Deep Listening, by Daniela Brugger

deep listening is an invitation to relax and focusses on notification sounds present in our everyday life. The electronic devices relate to us by saying hello, goodbye, well done, generally commenting, and observing the user. The machines seeking our attention, and communicating with us via sounds, while we receive messages, send Emails, or start a computer.

The piece is inspired by the process of "machine learning", the reality of "deep fake" and relates these topics with the experience of "deep listening". The term "deep listening" is known as a description for a meditative and concentrated form of listening whereas "deep learning" describes a multi layered learning system and the large amount of data used to create artificial intelligence.
For the recording two improvisation artists were asked to individually mimic the complex notification sounds with their voice.
