Driving through Las Vegas’
Choose your own soundtrack by using a patch panel and a headphone, while
cruising the main strip of Las Vegas. Part road movie, part 3D driving
game. DIY cinema for devotees.

CNN Interactive just got more interactive’
Infotainment ad absurdum: add a variety of soundtracks to the monolithic
CNN Interactive website in an attempt to further mediate a moment of
infotainment -to bring a cinematic conceit to this ever changing global
news feed. CNN Interactive just got more interactive highlights the thin
lines between fact and fiction, news making and entertainment.

Visitors can dial into a wall based grid of 42 Siemens mobile telephones,
which in turn begin to call each other and create a piece of 'music.' Each
phone has been individually programmed with a different ringtone. The more
people who dial into the work, the more layered the audio becomes.

Jon Thomson & Alison Craighead have been working with video and sound since
1991. More recently they have been exploring the possibilities of the
Internet and screen based multimedia to create navigable or user led
environments. Many of their internet-based works seek to manipulate
existing data (websites, sound tracks, ring tones) in surprising, critical
and humorous ways. The latter often engenders a feeling of estrangement in
the visitor.

Recent exhibitions include 010101 Art in Technological Times’ at The
Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco and Art & Money Online’ at Tate Britain.

Jon Thomson studied BA Fine Art in Leicester and PG diploma Electronic
Imaging at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee and currently
lectures at The Slade School of Fine Art in London.

Alison Craighead studied painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art
in Dundee and is currently a researcher into web specific art at the
University of Westminster.

The image of a jumbo jet crashing into the WTC on September 11th is carved
in our cultural memory. Nevertheless, we have been familiarized with
similar images through blockbuster disaster movies in which national
monuments such as the WTC, the White House, the Statue of Liberty and the
Pentagon feature as terrorist targets. ‘Wiretap 7.13: Urban Collisions: New
York’ analyses the visual representation of the attacks of September 11th
in New York from a cinematic, architectonic and cultural-symbolic point of

Apologies for crossposting...
When: January 31st-Feb 5th

The annual meeting of the World Economic Forum is leaving its long
time home in Davos, Switzerland and moving to New York City. If they
thought that the Swiss people gave them a hard time, look out: New
Yorkers will not sit by while the CEO's of the worlds largest
corporations scheme there way to more profit and devastation in the
global economy. 

The rest of the world is gathering in Porto Alegre for the World
Social Forum. Unlike the WEF the WSF brings together a broad section
of civil society, people already working hard to bring about a true
global democracy free from the grip of transnational corporations.
"Another world is possible."

IMC-New York and IMC-Brazil will be broadcasting live from both
events: bringing you the latest on the streets of New York, as well as
the visionary words and ideas of the WSF in Porto Alegre. But what
about the rest of the world?


Organize your local IMC to broadcast programming from your community
for a global solidarity broadcast! How does living in a capitalist
economy degrade local autonomy, community empowerment and grassroots
democracy? How do the actions of transnational corporations
destabilize the local economy, influence local politics and break
established unions? Tech help and free software is available.


If you are interested in participating PLEASE ATTEND THIS IRC MEETING!

NEXT IRC MEETING: Saturday, January 12th, 20:00GMT (18:00 DST in
Brazil, 21:00 Mediterranean/continental Europe time, 22:00 Greece,
12:00 Pacific coast USA, 15:00 Atlantic coast USA.

Ongoing organizing is happening on the imc-audio {AT} indymedia.org list
Subscribe at <http://lists.indymedia.org/mailman/listinfo/imc-audio>

What will the Broadcast be like?

We will have live broadcasts scheduled from as many local IMC's as
possible, taking turns broadcasting to the same web stream using the
D.R.O.P. network (Distributed Radio Open Project:
http://radio.us.solipsists.org). The live programming will be archived
and replayed in a play list until the next live broadcast comes on.
Content will be a mix of interviews, news updates, call in's, and
revolutionary music. The broadcast stream will be mirrored by
revolutionary web casters and FM broadcasters around the world. YOU

- ---------------------------------------------------------------

In order to broadcast Brazil IMC still needs the following items:

~a Pentium II with at least 64Mb of RAM, a CD player and a soundcard

~a Mixing board

sound  space  for  emergent  digital  and "on-the-edge" audio  practices.

Collective JukeBox is an open free audio "workspace", which is continuously
open since 1996. It works as a "groupware" and offers a free use of sound-
systems and internet-system, as public and working interfaces.
Autonomous and evolutive system, co-operative and international project,
Collective JukeBox is currently moderated by the audio community itself and
is a kind of continuous musical and sound laboratory open to the public
The project will use very soon multiple interfaces on the net (coop-system
server) and already in "real" life, the actual interface we will use for this
version 4.0 is a juke-box which be available in free access in Geneva during
6 months, into a convivial "audio lounge".

please feel free to take part in! and please forward this invitation to
your friends.

Send your audio contributions by snail mail (CD, MD, DAT) to the postal
address below before the 18 feb. 2002 or if you want to send audio files
(MP3, OGG, QT, WAV, AIFF), just send by mail the url where we can
download them (but please don't send your contributions by email).

If you want to access to a collective ftp server for uploading your files
directly to the project, just ask the moderator by replying directly to
this message, to send you the access codes.

With your sendings, please give us your actual postal address for feedback and
the exact titles of your audio contributions and the name under which you want

By replying directly to this message, you can inform the moderator of your
intention to participate in the project and when you intend to send us your

is not an archive, but a continuously evolutive and updated resource, which
each contributor can feed everytime and which be very soon continuously
available and "playable" on-line by the public as a jukebox or a radio or
finally as a new experimental audio "napster". So each participant can use
freely this system, and can update his/her audio contributions(to add, to
delete, to change, to modify or to quit the project) . Each time the whole
updated content of the "audio database" is publicly presented. Very soon,
this content can be available too on internet for the participants. We can say
that this project follows the spirits of Free Software, of Bazaar's and of
TAZ's recent ideas and investigations. It's a kind of "living organism" and
an automatic organisation.
The project can grow up only thanks to the participants.

Subject: read_me 1.2: deadine approaching

read_me 1.2
software as a work of art
or artistic software manipulations

Four days before the deadline!

There are 60 works already submitted.



read_me festival 1.2

CONCEPT can be found here http://www.macros-center.ru/read_me/about-en.html

Authors of the best works will be awarded special money prizes from "ROSIZO" and "Macros-center":
1st prize - 500 USD
2nd prize - 400 USD
3rd prize - 300 USD

Deadline: January 31, 2002
Festival: 17-19 May 2002, Moscow.

The following types of work can be referred to as artistic software:

1. Instructions (read_me) for modifying standard, commonly used software, as well as patches and anything that creates an artistic impact on software in a way not planned by the application's producers.
2. Deconstruction of existing software products, including computer games.
3. Programs written from scratch with a purpose different than the usual "rational" software purposes, i.e. the rejection of the idea of a program as a purely pragmatic tool. 

Since the curators of the festival do not consider it necessary for the framework of the artistic software categories to be too narrow, contact the curators if you are not sure if your work is suitable for read_me 1.2!
If you would like to take a look at sample artistic software works, visit our links page.

Dear all

If you are involved in a community media group or are a community media
supporter there is an important but short term opportunity to get your MP
to make a contribution to the campaign and to raise profile of your local

It has just been announced today that the Second Reading of the Office of
Communications Bill will take place in the House of Commons on Monday
afternoon 14 January 2002. No amendments take place at Second Reading but
the Bill will be debated in the Commons for the first time and MPs will
have an opportunity to raise issues which they consider important.

If you are ready to help with this lobbying effort you will need to
contact your MP before Monday afternoon by phoning their constituency
office, attending their constituency surgery at the weekend or by calling
the House of Commons on Monday morning on 020 7219 3000. Ask them if they
would speak in support of community media and tell them about your local
community media group.

There is a CMA briefing on the OFCOM Bill at
www.commedia.org.uk/campaign/briefings/brief12.doc which you can download
and fax to your MP to assist them during the debate. Further background
briefings on the Community Media Campaign can be found on the CMA campaign
pages at www.commedia.org.uk/campaign

You can also watch the debate on Monday on cable TV on the BBC Parliament
Channel or through the BBC website at www.bbc.co.uk/bbcparliament

Best wishes

The Language of New Media.
(apologies for cross posting)

(A panel proposed for the American Studies Association annual convention,
Houston, TX, November 14-17, 2002)

The language associated with new media and connected cultural and economic
forces derives almost exclusively from English (the "World Wide Web" is a
most obvious example). This panel seeks to explore the cultural contexts
surrounding the global dissemination of the language of new media. What
associations are implicit in the terms concerning information
technologies? How does the terminology circumscribe the use of new media
technologies? What are the cultural, political, social and economic
ramifications of
the spread of this language within and beyond U.S. borders?

Please send  500-word abstracts and brief c.v. by January 12, 2002 to

April 18-20

Calling all artists, designers, activists, multimedia producers, information
architects, tactical media agents, programmers, musicians, filmmakers,
concerned citizens and critical thinkers: This is a call for a gathering of
the digital commons, and we want to hear from you!

We are interested in your ideas, projects, sounds, films, papers and
proposals concerning the future of the digital commons, and invite you to
share them with us during our three-day convergence.

The term /digital commons/ is derived from the Common Law movement in
England in the 1600s. The movement called for the protection of shared
public spaces - the "commons" - its tools and resources. Often, larger,
private interests overran the commons, and this failure of the
communities to maintain their public resources is known in the discourse as
"the tragedy of the commons".

This April 18-20, 2002, the Museum of Contemporary Art  in Chicago will host
Version>02, a digital arts and technology convergence. To initiate the first
iteration of this event, we are asking you to consider how the maintenance
of this digital commons necessitates a dialogue about intellectual property,
the balance between civil liberties and security, freedom of speech and
privacy, and the implications of free or limited access to tools and
information. We ask you to share your vision of this space, it1s present and

Version>02 is an exploration of our digital commons and an opportunity to
meet those who tend to its gardens, fences, and pathways. It is an
investigation into maintaining, expanding and designing the commons, while
ensuring the continuation of shared resources and information in all facets
of communications.

This April, Version>02, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and
participating area galleries will provide a forum for artists, performers,
and critical thinkers. For three days and three nights, this digital arts
and technology will feature performances, film screenings, web
installations, and demonstrations from active minds of the emergent culture.

Interested? Send your questions and submissions to:

 1. Ehrengast zur transmediale_eroeffnung

 Randall M. Packer, Minister fuer Kunst und Technologie der Vereinigten
Staaten, wird die Eroeffnungsansprache der transmediale.02 halten.
US-Minister Packer engagiert sich gegen die Beschraenkung der Kunst durch
anachronistische Anschauungen und zugunsten visionaerer Ziele einer
kuenstlerischen Avantgarde. Auf der Eroeffnung der transmediale.02 wird er
seine erste Rede in Europa halten (live im Internet uebertragen von
Tel-SPAN), in der er eine von ihm initiierte Charta vorstellen wird
(Berliner Charta zur Virtualisierung), die Medienkuenstler weltweit
vereinigen soll.
 5. Februar, 19 Uhr
 Haus der Kulturen der Welt

 2. Das US-Ministerium fuer Kunst und Technologie

 Das US-Ministerium fuer Kunst und Technologie -
 http//www.usdept-arttech.net - ist als Einrichtung der Regierung  der
 Vereinigten Staaten in erster Linie dafuer zustaendig, Kuenstlern die
 Erkundung eines weiter gefassten Kulturbegriff zu ermoeglichen, im
 Uebergang von der Idee zur Aktion. Es dient auch dem psychischen  und
 geistigen Wohlbefinden aller Amerikaner, z.B. durch die Unterstuetzung
 kultureller Bemuehungen, die gegen Auswuechse neuer medialer Technologien in
 den sozialen Bereich immunisieren. Minister Packer gilt als Garant dafuer,
 dass das Ministerium fuer Kunst und Technologie sein utopisches Versprechen
 erfuellen und seine fundamentalen Wurzeln ehren wird - nicht nur anhand der
 Darstellung von Visionen aus der Vergangenheit, sondern auch durch die
 Foerderung aller amerikanischen Medienkuenstler. Die Integration von Kunst
 und Technologie ist die kuenstlerische Realitaet des 21.  Jahrhunderts.

 3. Der Weltweite Virtualisierungsrat

 Der Weltweite Virtualisierungsrat wurde nach dem Modell der Raete
 der Vereinten Nationen gestaltet. Diese neue Initiative des US-Ministeriums
 fuer Kunst und Technologie soll kuenstlerische Kraefte fuer die
weltweite Virtualisierung mobilisieren und koordinieren. Minister
 Randall M. Packer entwirft zusammen mit seinem Stab zur Zeit eine Charta
 (Berliner Charta zur Virtualisierung), die waehrend der transmediale.02
 durch ein internationales Konsortium von dort anwesenden Kuenstlern, als
 Vertreter ihrer Nationen, ratifiziert werden soll. Bei der Eroeffnung der
 transmediale.02 werden die repraesentierenden Kuenstler die Charta in einer
 Zeremonie gemeinsam unterzeichnen. Es wird das erste globale Abkommen
 zwischen kuenstlerischer Avantgarde und internationaler Regierung sein.

 4. Tel-SPAN

 Tel-SPAN ist ein oeffentlicher Dienst des US-Ministeriums fuer Kunst und
 Technologie. Seine Aufgabe besteht darin, global Zugang zu kuenstlerischen
 Prozessen in einer zunehmend kybernetisierten Gesellschaft zu
ermoeglichen. Tel-SPAN versorgt seine Zuschauer mit live und in Echtzeit
uebertragenen kulturellen Inhalten sowie Foren, in denen kritisch
kuenstlerische Themen diskutiert und entschieden werden. Alles ohne
Bearbeitung durch Schnitt, ohne Kommentare oder Analysen und mit einer
ausgeglichenen Praesentation aller radikalen Standpunkte. Tel-SPAN versorgt
Medienkuenstler, die Einfluss auf politische und oeffentliche Prozesse
nehmen wollen, und bietet ihnen einen direkten Draht zum Publikum, ohne
dessen Ansichten zu filtern oder zu veraendern.

 2. The US Department of Art and Technology

 The US Department of Art and Technology - http//www.usdept-arttech.net - is
 the United States Government's principal agency for facilitating  the
 artist's need to extend aesthetic inquiry into the broader culture where
 ideas become real action. It also serves the psychological and spiritual
 well-being of all Americans by supporting cultural efforts that provide
 immunity from the extension of new media technologies into the social
 sphere. Secretary Packer will make certain that the Department fulfills its
 utopian promise and honors its radical heritage, not only by articulating
 the visions of the past, but by supporting the advancement of all American
 media artists embracing the integration of art and technology as the
 artistic reality of the 21st century.

 3. The Global Virtualization Council

 The Global Virtualization Council, patterned after the Councils of the
 United Nations, is a new initiative introduced by the US Department of Art &
 Technology to mobilize and coordinate artistic forces of virtualization
 internationally. Secretary Randall M. Packer, together with his staff, is
 currently drafting a Charter, referred to as the Berlin Virtualization
 Charter, to be approved by an international consortium of artists
 representing all nations attending the transmediale.02 in Berlin. At the
 opening of the transmediale.02 the artist representatives will ratify the
 Charter by participating in a collective signing ceremony. This represents
 the first global accord between the artistic avant-garde and international
 4. Tel-SPAN

 Tel-SPAN is a public service created by the US Department of Art &
 Technology. Its mission is to provide global access to the artistic process
 in an increasingly cybernated society. Tel-SPAN provides its audience access
 to live, real-time distribution of broad forms of cultural content, and to
 other forums where critical artistic issues are discussed, debated and
 decided - all without editing, commentary or analysis and with a balanced
 presentation of all radical points of view. Tel-SPAN provides media artists
 who seek to influence the political discourse, public policy, and the future
 of art a direct conduit to its audience without filtering or otherwise
 constraining their points of view.
