FUTUREPERFECT X HIGHLIGHT: TELEMUSIC #1
With Telemusic #1, the demarcation between physical and virtual space, between on-line and local proximity, and between the self and the network, converges and blurs into a shared, participatory experience through sound and our attention to its spatial and transformational qualities.
The notion of new spatial, virtual territories as landscape for human experience is superimposed on the hyper-dramatic stage where statements concerning the network and its potential for social and aesthetic transformation are voiced by an "Artist-Evangelist." The on-line and on-site audience in turn collectively confront, challenge, and celebrate this assumption by forming their own telematic identities such as the Transcendentalist, the Cynic, the Lurker, and the Anarchist. Together they join as an ensemble of disparate voices brought together by collapsed geographies and fractured ideologies concerning the impact of telematics on the human condition.
Participate in the performance of Telemusic #1 by accessing the on-line performance site during the evening of the performance. Additional information will be available at the above site beginning Monday, October 30.
Telemusic #1 is a collaborative work by Randall Packer and Steve Bradley, with John Young (Network Design), Gregory Kuhn (Sound Design), Christopher Styles (Web Design), Jorge Castro (Web Design), Andrew Bruntel (Web/Flash Designer), and Jason Corso (Programmer).
