Lorem is a music-driven multidisciplinary practice by Italian musician, visual artist and independent researcher Francesco D’Abbraccio. Working with neural networks and artificial intelligence systems, Lorem produces sounds, images and texts. D’Abbraccio is also co-director of Krisis Publishing, a curatorial and publishing platform focused on the impact of media culture on contemporary societies. He is active in underground music and art scene since 2008 with electronic experimental duo Aucan(more then 400 live gigs across Europe, Africa and Asia) and with the collective Unità di Crisi. Focusing on politics of representation and transmedial culture, he realised projects for a wide variety of institutions. Deep neural networks, hacked hardware and programmed errors are used to drive machines toward aesthetical, autonomous behaviours. Intricated patterns discloses emotional time-fractured experiences.
His work has been exhibited and performed at Ars Electronica, Biennale di Venezia, Opéra de Lille, London Design Biennale, Berlin Transmediale, NXT Museum Amsterdam, Sheffield International Documentary Festival, Museo Triennale di Milano, HEK Basel, Design Museum, Elevate Graz.
