LSA Festival Student Stories: Adam Alcock / Music Technology

The goal of this piece is to create a thought-provoking view of Mass Surveillance in our society, leaving the viewer with an unsettling awareness of its intrusive nature in our lives.

Bugged: Observations on Mass Surveillance in our society through an Interactive Art Installation

My name is Adam Alcock and I am originally from Ireland but now based in Leeds. Over the course of my masters I began to explore sonic art mainly working with sound, space, and technology. I did my Masters in Music Technology part-time and many of my projects explored Sonic-Art and Soundscapes through various Interactive Art Installations and Performances.
