about fake[dac~]

history and origins

fake[dac~] (pronounced fakedack) is a combination of the words "fake" and "digital to audio converter or dac~" which is a rubbish joke m-onz came up with playing around with pure data objects. You will see pure data patch cables used in posters and referenced because pure data is an important and influential open source programming language for multimedia artists.

There is a diverse and vibrant scene of technologies, art forms and algorithmic practice including "algorave" (algorithmic rave), generative ai, audio visual performance and DJ's performing alongside VJ's (visual artists). fake[dac~] was created by lifelong friends luis sanz & m-onz (pronounced "monz") out of their shared interest in bringing together disparate scenes and energy and encouraging everyone to play nicely together.
