It is said that, after the Fukushima earthquake, mothers of the children that had disappeared in the 2011 tsunami went at a public phone on the seashore and addressed their thoughts to them.

We lose objects.
We lose information.
We continually lose.
We lose friends. We lose dear ones.
We lose hope, cells, memory, and future.
We sometimes get desperate, we sometimes get lonely when we lose something.
The Installation Lost Interferences connects our losses.
Lost Interferences is a transmedia projected including the installation, the performance and this web site.
The website utilizes an AI system (deep neural network) devised and trained by Prateek Verma on unsupervised representations of music. The system has learned to align the latent code from music with attributes of the language such as affect and sentiment. Each story submitted to the website is analyzed by this system and becomes associated with the closest matching audio tracks from the project’s music library composed by Constantin Basica.
You can send your material as text or if you need to upload another format or file you can share them HERE
By sending us material you agree that it will be included in the installation and performance Lost Interferences
without any financial compensation. Your material may be used 'as is' or processed by the artists.
When you send your material, you will have the option to share your name. Your name will not be linked directly to your story in the performance/installation. You will be credited as co-author to Lost Interferences
. You may skip the ‘Name’ field if you would like to send anonymous material.
