a large glass box and a loud hum fill the nave of the deconsecrated chapel. inside the box is marenostrum, the largest computer in spain. from the outside, the only sign that it is alive are the blinking lights and the noise from its ventilators. but marenostrum can say much more - it just needs someone who can hear it.
when i met benjamin boysen, i was looking for a musician for a documentary created using marenostrum, and i wanted the music to be done with it too. i had just found out that ben specialises in composing using electronic noise captured from circuits, so it felt like a perfect fit. i desperately wanted to convince him to work with us, although i only had to say supercomputer once before he said yes.
ben spent the few hours inside the glass box, recording marenostrum like a child in a toy store, deafened and frozen but with a huge smile on his face. when he came out, he already had the idea for what to do with the material after our project - an album made solely of marenostrum sounds. it was a special moment: the supercomputer would sing.
i have great admiration for ben, but still i was surprised at how well this album evokes what i imagine is the state of mind of marenostrum. from up close, the songs are a symphony of the strange and colourful sounds that happen as it computes problems in science and engineering. however, from a larger perspective, this is the music that algorithms make, this is how number crunching sounds like. this is the song of the computer.
