Madam Data is a musician, composer, and sound scientist who explores machine and spirit interfaces. Their fantasies are about truly knowing what sacredness is, echolocating spaces infused with spirits, and begetting ghosts in the technology they create. In finding these things, they seek a liberatory practice that uses sound to return bodies to resonance. Madam Data works with synthesisers, handmade computer programs and circuits, field recordings and clarinets as they consider these objects to be interfaces with the Divine presence. In their art, they make use of the sonics of stillness, space and brutal intensity.
In 2021, Madam Data was given the tandem residency between Singapore and Berlin, on which they teamed up with Collo Awata in the online realm. The resulting digital collaboration was presented in 2022 at both the festivals CTM in Berlin and Playfreely in Singapore.
