Audiovisual performance for radio-astronomical data, artificial intelligence and self-playing piano. The audiovisual performance is part of a series using artificial intelligence trained on human communication to search for patterns and rhythms in data from outer space. Electromagnetic radio waves from the universe serve as input data for several neural networks, which have been trained on human communications and ideas of extraterrestrial life. Now the networks are desperately trying to discover hidden messages of distant civilizations in the murmur of space. As the artificial intelligences reach deeper and deeper into the alien data mysterious noises evolve, composing a non-worldly triad of human, extraterrestrial and artificial sounds.
