Scroll to prev post Scroll to next post Commission: “besides,” 3 Networked Performances Commission: “besides,” 3 networked performances by Annie Abrahams and Martina Ruhsam:

June 11, 12, & 13 online at 19:00 (CET), 1:00 pm (EDT) (find your local time) Streaming by Ivan Chabanaud/

Annie and Martina will investigate the performative potential of real time computer-mediated communication. By listening to each other’s gestures (in a visual and acoustic sense) they will choreograph each other’s actions, despite Annie being in Montpellier, France and Martina in Berlin, Germany.

Daybreak, forever: Inviting Aussies and Kiwis to Participate

Ragnar Helgi Ólafsson and Pall Thayer currently have a piece on exhibition at the Icelandic National Gallery titled Daybreak, forever. It uses live audio streams from the Locusonus project to follow the rising sun around the globe as an audible experience. Although Western Europe is well represented, Locusonus could use some more streams to tighten the circle. It would be especially nice if they had some streams in Australia and New Zealand. So if anyone on this list, residing in Australia or New Zealand, would like to participate in the project, you can find info here.
