[-empyre-] Thanks to radioqualia and pingfm
-excuse the crossover, this got stuck for a day at my mailserver-
Dear Adam, Honor, Jan, Lars and Sebastian & -empyreans-,
thanks to all of you who have contributed to our discussion on the
»slip.stream of the net«!
It has been very interesting to observe the variety of issues that are
concerned with streaming media and net.radio.
We started out with questioning if the "web as we (like) to know it"
with its browser-centrism is able to provide an appropriate environment
for all kinds of networked media.
Then, a quite controversial debate evolved on the aesthetics of
data-reduction and its artistic technical necessity vs originality. The
notion of the net's "resonance" and hence dimension&space brought to
light by compression artifacts seems to be a very inspiring thought
among many others.
Simultaneously we followed another thread that led us straight to
net.economics, politics and the open source movement. radioqualia's
»Radio Free Linux«-Project provided a very interesting and satiric view
on how free software and free radio do relate. Finally Jan
Brueggemeier's work-in-progress »neture« re-introduced the real world
of the »shrinking city« and its implications with networked and
broadcasted (micro) media.
I believe all of these threads deserve to be continued and explored in
many different artistic and theoretic ways.
radioqualia will are currently working on their ongoing
»radio-astronomy« project in Latvia and elsewhere - hopefully we will
be able to witness the first results of this exciting research soon,
check out their website for updates: http://www.radioqualia.net
pingfm are streaming every sunday night from 20:00-22:00 C.E.T.

»shrinking city« continues: http://pingfm.org/leipzig
I once again would like to thank the guests and all other members who
contributed for their commitment.
Now we welcome Christina McPhee and criticalartware for another
exciting month on -empyre-!
