The Data God

New music and generative projection art presented by RUMA

Welcome to the world of the Data God. You will find a river of captives, a trickle of clues, a dragon with a thousand fingers, a concrete Christmas tree, a war in the clouds, an economy of virtues and a heist. How do you make your way home? RUMA explores late modern noise and the glory beneath, rendered with new original songs, instrumentals and generative projection art.

This is an excerpt of an original work which was first performed as part of Mudfest 2021 (5-13 August) and will hopefully be performed again soon.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nations as the Traditional Owners of the land upon which we live, work, and learn. We pay our respects to the Elders past, present, and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded. This always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
