Joseph Nechvatal, an artist who created computer-assisted paintings and videos using computer viruses, released many cassettes over a period of over 40 years, starting in 1981, summarized on Selected Sound Works (2021).

Viral Tempest (2022) is a double-LP: "The audio on the first disk I made in collaboration with Andrew Deutsch: OrlandO et la tempete viral symphOny redux suite It uses an anonymous reading of Virginia Woolf's Orlando as a type of sonic signature that my virus-modeled artificial life audio material (adjusted from the first movement of my 2006 viral symphOny: the enthroning) reanimates. The second piece, pour finir avec le jugement de dieu viral symphOny plague, serves as a brother suite to the first and instead uses Antonin Artaud's controversial recorded performance of his radio play To Have Done with the Judgement of God as the sonic figure."
