Crónica is delighted to present the “1001 Songs of eBay” its longest ever Unlimited Release

“Forget the technology, it’s lustful entertainment, baby!”

“The Sound of eBay” is an UBERMORGEN.COM project with Stefan Nussbaumer, online at since July 2008. Using eBay user data, The Sound of eBay generates unique songs. By simply entering any eBay username and clicking “generate”, the robots sprawl out into the net to collect data, bringing it back to the SC3 Supercollider sound-generation engine. The complex software-machine starts generating a score-file which is then transformed into a unique song.
“The Sound of eBay” transforms a role-model of individual commodities market in an “ARTitude” of robotic configurations and strings, swapping personalized and compositional business dreams with sound designs from secure client accounting. Using the concept of creative destruction, this entertainmentaggregation is tuning in a mind-blowing cutup, pushing the contemporary lifestyles over the edge and combines it with transformable delays of postrealistic business-analysis.
