here's a shockwave interactive audio piece i'm working on at the mo:
http://vispo.com/temp/jigsoundArteroids2b.htm called jig-sound.
if you don't have shockwave installed you can install it from
here are two streaming videos i put together the last couple of days on
jig-sound: http://vispo.com/jig/video/1 and http://vispo.com/jig/video/2 .
these are primarily tutorial in nature.
thanks to -empyre- for the month on digital poetry and to those who
participated in the discussion.
it's often said that poetry is dying or dead, that people don't read much
anymore, and so on. but i think it's just changing. as it always is anyways.
if we look at poetry as bound to a particular medium and a particular mode
of presentation within a particular medium, then we limit it to something
smaller than it is. we do much of our thinking and feeling with language.
not all of it, but much of it. poetry brings them together, thinking and
feeling, through language. poetry is in our intensest engagement with
language. however that is manifested. it is in our committment to language,
so poetry will do ok and so will digital poetry, as long as we continue to
use computers in important ways, which is for the foreseeable future.
