i think it is actually NOT written in max (as I remember correctly
there was some serious amount of beer involved on the presentation)
but it’s a nice concept the net-performance was also very intriging

as long as we’re off topic, is anyone else getting a little
frustrated with art-technology whose only impressive trait is cool
factor? the only way I could see things like this working on an
expressive level is in conjunction with a traditional computer.

just a thought. I’m just a plain old boring musician.

the cool factor is always a bit of a problem I think. I’ve seen so
many things that are very cool looking but have not that much to say.
The cool factor and complexity kind of ruin the way people interact
(feel) the installation

my two cents though

… installations that depend on cutting-edge technology are fine the
first year,
out of date the second and embarrasing for ever afterwards …
(Steward Brand in Brian Eno’s Diary)

The interesting thing is that this set up makes the act of
manipulating sound so much more visible
to the audience. To me that is a value beyond cutting-edge technology.

matt- context is everything no matter what the art
form-
the emotional context–without it the art form is
cold-
like a machine!

point well taken. I’ll meditate on that tonight.

to play devil’s advocate, that’s almost true but i have issues with
"forever"

the cutting-edge tech of today is the nostalgia or "history" of
tomorrow – Muybridge is still interesting after all these years, even
if easy duplicated nowadays.
