‘Encoded Revolt’

is a collection of works which encode the co-ordinates and surrounding data of

airstrikes in the Syrian war within music. These compositions act as a new form of embedded activism; candidly and covertly protesting government censorship.



Converging the base 16 code hexadecimal 
to adaptations of the serialist musical 
structures, pioneered by composers 
Schoenberg and Messiaen. This data is 
translated into musical notation 
and disseminated autonomously or 
performatively as sound waves, that are 
impermanent and ungraspable, but affective and universal.
