24 Hour Count: "a blog jam"

(0)

BOULDER - SCOTTSDALE - SYDNEY - WWW 24 HOUR COUNT
"a blog jam"

The 24 Hour Count is a multi-media blog band made up of Colorado artists Mark Amerika, Rick Silva, and Nathaniel Wojtalik. For this newly commissioned 24-hour online blog performance, the artists will use a variety of media including the Internet, mobile phones, digital video and photo cameras, mini-disk recorders, musical instruments, and computer software programs to improvisationally remix, interpret, and respond to current events while filtering their "digital readings" through the prism of Count Lautréamont's "Songsof Maldoror," a classic French text written in the 19th century and whom the Surrealists adopted as the progenitor of their significant 20th century movement.

Sponsored by the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, the Alt-X Online Network, and the TECHNE lab at the University of Colorado at Boulder, the artists performing this distributed multi-media blog performance will be located in three different locations: Sydney, Australia, Boulder, Colorado, and Scottsdale, Arizona.


The event starts at December 17th
14:00 MST/Arizona
16:00 EST
21:00 London
22:00 Berlin

December 18th
08:00 Sydney

For 24 hours straight, the three distributed artists will use the same blogging website as the virtual location for their ongoing multi-media jam session. The performance will coincide with the opening of the SOUTHWEST.net:Techno show in Scottsdale, and a living archive of the blog jam site will remain online both in the gallery through May 14, 2006, and on the web throughout the duration of the exhibition and beyond.

Urban play

"The Project for Urban Intimacy offers projects that transgress and counter the rationality and efficiency that infect our cities. Many of these projects seek to alter your daily encounters: moving them past the brief, efficient, and cordial towards the poetic, delayed, or absurd."

Back from London and Berlin, and re-ensconced in my daily routines, I wanted to resurface long enough to post a few reflections on my experience at Design Engaged and an annotated version of the presentation slides for my talk on Design in the Parliament of Things (pdf).

Ringtones, or the auditory logic of globalization

(0)

This incredibly thorough essay by Sumantha Gopinath - Assistant Professor of Music Theory in the University of Minnesota School of Music - published on First Monday attempts to provide a description of the global ringtone industry, to determine and assess the numerous cultural consequences of the ringtone’s appearance and development, and to situate the ringtone within the context of contemporary capitalism.

The essay also covers the history of the ringtone, how it's evolving, world sales, what it's like to be a ringtone composer and who's entitled to copyright revenue...

Dear Friends,

New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. (NRPA) will be 25 years old in 2006; Turbulence will be 10 years old. Despite the expansion of our projects, the acceleration of our support for net artists, and the valuable resources we provide in our networked_performance blog and New American Radio archive, NRPA has seen a decline in its operating support.

We need your support. Please help us preserve our archives and support emerging artists and technologies.

With Gratitude,

Helen Thorington and Jo-Anne Green
Co-Directors
