An album cover made of seemingly meaningless crayon markings scribbled across a blank page. Text on the cover reads: DOCUSPLICE 2023 - The Hacked Orchestra. And in the bottom right corner a description: The Hacked Orchestra is a sound/noise-based project initiated by ghenwa noiré in collaboration with Hackers and Designers. Docusplice is an audioscape made from a series of jamming sessions that were conducted following Hacked Orchestra workshops.

The Hacked Orchestra was a series of activities that explores the possibilities of forging meaningful interpersonal relationships in times of crisis through the intimate processes of collectively foraging analog acoustic materials, building experimental electronic music instruments and collectively jamming together.

DOCUSPLICE gathers excerpts of noise and silence recorded during this series of activities and compiles them into an audioscape.
