@djxenoyoga (2017 ongoing) performs live and also exists as automated software. Employing common techniques of DJ as a trope, @djxenoyoga samples and remixes text, audio and visual of internet readymades. Meanings are given voice, alchemized into cyborgian spells. New cultural myths are generated, which alienates realities of political discourse and popular culture. It is a hacking ritual that works in return against ideological hypnosis. Twitter bot @djxenoyoga translates real-time database of news headlines into speech voices and midi notes. Essentially a software, @djxenoyoga performs automation of simple song arrangement and tweets/sings these ear worms once a day. The existence of twitterbot @djxenoyoga parasitizes Twitter’s digital institution that is dependent on the larger bureaucratic web infrastructure.
