Ok, you probably haven’t wondered what a selfie sounds like, but someone actually has and has figured it out using ~science~ and you can see it unfold live.
Taking place onSunday, April 22, Robert Blackwood Hall, Monash University as part of MLIVE, the “sound of selfie” will be unveiled to a live audience by contemporary music exponent Gabriella Smart. This immersive performance will see Smart perform Erkki Veltheim’s ‘Two New Proposals’, an electro-acoustic piece that, in Smart’s own words, “uses Morse code to reflect on the connection between repetitious Morse messages at Australian colonial repeater stations and pop culture’s obsessive need to re-tweet messages across social media.”
The selfie that the piece focuses on is none other than Ellen Degeneres’ famed Oscars selfie, the most popular selfie of all time that has reeled in over 2.3 million retweets since being posted back in 2014. See below.
