If the digital world is a sea of information, malicious software and computer viruses are mermaids: their magical songs turn horrible monsters into charming water creatures. At the crossroads between media studies, psycho-acoustics, political critique and sound healing, My Virtual Mermaid aims at critically questioning our relation to the signals, notifications, alarms of the digital world, by sampling, distorting and mixing them.
