"PARDON THE DUST"

'Pardon the Dust' is an algorithm which has constructed beats from deleted tweets, bringing into light something hidden as the machine creates a soundscape from digital remnants. 

When a Tweet is deleted, it leaves behind an eighteen digit code. That number could be considered as a sequencer, a data string which when fed through an algorithm becomes a musical score. Captured from a live Twitter stream, the potential soundscape is dictated by what is flowing through the internet at that very moment in time and becomes a very public performance of something intended to be obscured. 

This performance is often played out against a backdrop of an ever decomposing visual scene as the JPG compression algorithm progressively ravages an image consisting of a gradient composed of hexadecimal reds.
