Drift/Net was an experiment in collaboration between artist and audience. Through the use of a simple answering machine style message, the audience was prompted to use their phone as a recording device.

The intent of this experiment was to leave the content and narrative of the final work open ended, so that the scope and range of recordings generated by the audience will determine the sound, length, content and narrative of the final composition.

The resulting sound-work was created by arranging the resulting 99 recordings in chronological order and alternating them in the left and right channels.  Spectral analysis was then used to determine the most common frequencies, these frequencies were then exaggerated through digital processing to produce the final piece.
