ABOUT THE ARTISTS…
DISINFORMATION is a pioneering electronic music and installation art project, founded in Tooting, South West London, in 1995. Disinformation artworks mostly focus on the creative potential of electromagnetic interference – radio noise from live mains electricity and from the sun etc – as perceptual equivalents of synaesthetic phenomena, and on the psychology of auditory and visual illusions. Disinformation artworks have been described by The Guardian as “some of the most beautiful installations around”, and (more recently) as “mesmerising… hypnotic and captivating… (and) sublime” by Aesthetica magazine. Disinformation’s sound work has been described as producing “potent drug-like trances of utter black mysteriousness” by the Sound Projector, and as “fascinating” by the Wire, while the Metro newspaper described Disinformation as “the black-ops unit of the avant-garde”.
