Swamp Protocol
is the first project by experimental art platform and record label, Most Dismal Swamp. It is a distributed film project made with 18 artists working across digital media, installation, performance, machine learning, music, film and poetry. Swamp Protocol can be watched online at www.mostdismalswamp.com and also as part of a site-specific installation at arebyte gallery, London which includes a spatial 8-channel sound work by producer and genre-fluid DJ Anni Nöps.

The projects of Most Dismal Swamp simulate and explore a contemporary ecology that has come to be defined by the hallucinatory entanglement of multiple logics, systems, temporalities, and realities: a mixed-reality paradigm; a pervasive, horizonless swampscape.
Swamp Protocol focuses on the endemic habits of orientation that characterise life in the swampscape: How does one, or indeed a community, engage with an environment of this nature (and vice versa)? What can be learned from the emergent rituals and tacit procedures necessary for navigating such a shared space? Is there a collective rationality emerging from the digitally altered states wrought by the swampscape? Some kind of Dank Enlightenment?

Swamp Protocol Soundtrack by Anni Nöps will be available via Most Dismal Swamp and across all major streaming platforms in May.
