What’s it for?

  • Hear artists collaborate from across time and space!
  • Make music and performance art along with them!
  • Give aspiring improvisers an ensemble to rehearse with
  • Give composers a set of virtual collaborators to develop interactive compositions
  • Highlight the nature of communications technology as not-so-transparent factors in our communication and creativity
  • Use the network as a creative constraint, not a substitute for live presence

Using the structure of today’s screen-mediated communications, these performers contribute their parts one at a time, responding to what was played before, and together they build “born digital” performances that expose the delays and glitches of network communications and make something genuinely *human* with it.  As the audience, we witness performances that only exist in our web browsers, in the moments we’re viewing it. There can be no “definitive version” of the performance!
