hex54820

The hex54820 project was born out of the need to transit to other territories, from the urgency of becoming a cosmonaut of inner space; floating between the void, the noise, the fluid and the aether, where rational thinking and language make no sense. A sensory journey through a sound landscape in which "as above, so below". The noise element is produced by transforming raw data to sound through databending processes and experimental audio editing. Between random and control, hex54820 is a collaboration between technology and human imput, thus turning the final result into a hybrid that is difficult to classify.

"What a masterclass on databending! I definitely imagine cyberspace sounding like this."
— Madqueen, youtube.com/MadqueenshowTV

"Sabrina has gifted us with sounds full of worlds we cannot see, we cannot even touch."
— David Pazos, serialexperiments.es

"Teratoma is a piece that sounds like the raw feeling and a psychedelic-digital space outside the Simulacrum to which my novel constantly alludes, a sonic place in which to entrench yourself forever.
Endo is an strange electronic ritual piece of music, the distillate of the immersion experience in the circular history of my book. A preciousness."
— Francisco Jota-Pérez, author

There is a sudden malfunction on my human hardware. Let's see if it's temporary.

I need to sleep but the noise in my head won't let me.

Maybe I need a technomancer.

System overload.

A digital scream, a machine shout.

Rational thinking and language make no sense here.
