All I Ever Am by kdmindustries

kdmindustries ‘All I Ever Am’

Imagine if you could capture a snapshot of every bit of data being generated in a single moment in time. Every TikTok video, stock market move, Reddit post, pizza order, Tinder swipe, Covid case. Every bit of information being stored as a 0 and a 1.

‘All I Ever Am’ is the latest and greatest sonic and visual deconstruction to be presented by kdmindustries at The Rechabite, Perth on May 6 & 7 at 7pm.

Featuring cutting-edge technology, stunning visuals and an immersive soundtrack – it’s a sensory mash of real time web scrapes, generative video and modular sound, exploring 40 trillion gigabytes of information and the rise of data as the most valuable resource in the world.

Creator Mark Haslam says the number of bytes in the digital universe is 40 times more than the number of stars in the observable universe.

“The scale of data creation and harvesting is breathtaking,” he explains. “All of this raw information is stored in hundreds of football-ground-sized buildings all over the world – and that’s just Amazon and Google.

“In ‘All I Ever Am’ we harness technological power and some manic creative coding to take you on a joyous trip through this raw information,” he says. “Technology is often viewed as an opposing element to humanity, but through this production we explore just how human it is – how all those 1s and 0s are testament to the human need to build and connect.”

Haslam is a performance designer who’s worked with leading arts companies across performance, dance, music and visual arts, building major projects with Societas Raffaello Sanzio, Marrugeku, Branch Nebula, erth Visual and Physical, Stalker Theatre, Force Majeure, Legs on the Wall, Belvoir St and Sydney Theatre Company.

Following on from previous kdmindustries projects, ‘PRVCY’ (developed at Perth Institute of Contemporary Art in 2016/2017), ‘CONCRETE:heartbeat’ (Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth from 2010-2015), and ‘project:ALICE’ (2009-2010), Haslam acts as both a performer and technical operator, mixing real-time data streams with both live and harvested video content and manipulated spoken text.

“The images stream to both a large rear projection screen behind me and onto a holographic scrim downstage, creating unique images that wrap around us,” he says. “Each visual has a sonic equivalent created by James Luscombe, which trigger precisely with the images, creating a layering of information that ebbs and flows as a live realisation of network traffic.”

Creating (and performing) the sonic compositions is James Luscombe – a sound engineer and designer who specialises in live mixing and performance programming/composition for dance and theatre. He’s previously worked with Black Swan Theatre Company, Barking Gecko Theatre Co, Perth Theatre Company, Maxima, Steps Dance Co and Performing Lines.

‘All I Ever Am’ is a powerful, visceral and cathartic experience for audiences who exist ever more in digital space.
