ZNET SEQUENCER is a Pure Data patch that generates different sounds and/or graphics using an “IP sequencer”. Network traffic is captured by pcap external, the ip sequencer generates a different bang for each basic protocol (IP, TCP, UDP and ICMP), and the sound system has the assigned sound for them (sampler, drums, noises, etc...). So, the “music” (or noise) is generated by a sequencer based on IP network traffic. If you connect your device (smartphone or laptop) to the wifi, or using the computer of the installation you can see that as you surf the web, download a file, read email, etc a sound is generated and all traffic together compose a “song” in real-time.
