Deepscape: Transversal is a stereophonic soundscape continuously generated by one deep neural network, trained on 16 hours of soundscapes collected from 27 locations around the world in late April 2022. The soundscapes computed by the deep neural network compress and normalize the biophonies, geophonies and anthropophonies of the planet. They echo the terraforming of AI, whose computational infrastructures intensively exploit socio-material resources over the globe, and whose media flows generated throughout the Internet divert our attention from the planet.
