Performing Arts Technology Seminar: Chris Chafe, Stanford University

Tapping into the Internet as an Acoustical/Musical Medium

Performing Arts Technology Seminar: Chris Chafe, Stanford University Performing Arts Technology Seminar: Chris Chafe, Stanford University
Francis Bacon, writing in 1626 as if he had one hand on a crystal ball, imagined a world with “sound-houses, where we practise and demonstrate all sounds and their generation” and “means to convey sounds in trunks and pipes, in strange lines and distances.” Digital synthesis and rapidly expanding networks for network-based music are compellingly close to this vision. The lecture presents a survey of experimental music-making using the Internet. “What does it mean to "be here,' when here is there, and there is here?” It's a question which not only pertains to these possibilities but also to real-time networked media in general.
