The Sentiment Machine.


Developed for the Soundmarks show at Art Interactive, The Sentiment 
Machine is a self-regulating sound installation that examines the 
content of some of broadcast television's staple products. Using a 
computer program that cross-edits and remixes audio clips on-the-fly, a 
database of TV soundtracks is continuously poled to find ongoing topical 
continuity and produce a juxtaposed, hypertextual narrative of 
association. By restricting interplay to only those audio streams which 
share a pause, the editing rules mimic the rules of conversational flow. 
This "conversation" is then released through a small constellation of 
hanging speakers creating a gentle shower of emotional stimulants, a 
compressed model of the ethos of broadcast entertainment.
