The html works good so far. You N3krozofties are FAST!
The console window doesn't pop up to the correct

Is there anything else you need help with?
Any specific feedback, beta testing

depends probably how your toolbars look like.
anyway, the intended setup is double screen:
the video frames in full screen, projected.
the control window on a control monitor.
so the resize is not really needed, just practical for testing on 1
small screen.

>Is there anything else you need help with?

- FEEDBACK: think of what else should/could be implemented in this
"html-patch".
the principle for now is: one main frame -
\hyphenatedurl{http://www.1904.cc/~aether/mainframe.html}
which is divided in a number of subframes (for now six)
for each location, there are different versions of subframes with
different refresh speed (for now three)
e.g.  \hyphenatedurl{http://www.1904.cc/~aether/frame\_brussels\_m.html} (m: medium
speed, 1sec refresh)
I attach the zipped html files so you can test in your computer...

one function that needs to be implemented would be to change the
frame color of one video in order to highlight it - just a different
html page, or could this be done in a smart way, like a javascript
link that changes style settings of target frame on mouseclick?

another function i would like to test is a "hi-speed" mode: a html
page where the jpegs would be placed in different layers, only one of
them visible at a time, and where the page would cycle through them
at very high speed (its quite easy to do using dreamweavers timeline
function). there would be no refresh in this mode since refresh needs
more time.

some pictures and seeing if they refresh instantly as they should.
using for the moment the following directories:
\hyphenatedurl{http://artslashmedia.net/~aether/z/0z.jpg}  (select:Sydney)
\hyphenatedurl{http://artslashmedia.net/~aether/g/1g.jpg}  (select:Brussels)
\hyphenatedurl{http://artslashmedia.net/~aether/e/2e.jpg}  (select:Geneva)

Also, we should test the different existing webcam-2-ftp softwares.
Window users should give a try to these open-source softs:
\hyphenatedurl{http://lundie.ca/fwink/}
\hyphenatedurl{http://www.webcam2000.info/}

tell us if they work, and how the .pngs or .jpgs are going the be
named - this will allow me the include the good filepath into the
HTML page.

- CALLS/SUBMISSIONS
yes, you are all very welcome to look for opportunities to present
this project elsewhere, write submissions, fill out forms etc. if
someone of you is volunteering for this job, i will be glad to
transmit all the text material we have.
The Virginia Beach proposal looks very interesting, the detailed
specifications are here:
\hyphenatedurl{http://www.vbgov.com/file\_source/dept/cvd/Documents/OFCA-7-0002 Complete RFP Package.pdf}
Deadline for application is: May 18.

looking forward,

control interface update

\stylemail

hi all,

a new sexy html controller is online.
check it out here:
\hyphenatedurl{http://www.1904.cc/~aether/control\_panel2.html}

it should be quite intuitive, the numbered arrows will make the images
refresh at different speed (1=slow, 3=fast).
most of the frames are still void, waiting for your images to be uploaded.

to test realtime upload you can use the lastest version of the max
patch (v.101), which you can find here:

or you can use the webcam2ftp software of your choice pointing to the
following servers (from left to right and from top to bottom):

\hyphenatedurl{http://1904.cc/~aether/k/} (images named 0k.jpg - 9k.jpg)
\hyphenatedurl{http://1904.cc/~aether/l/} (images named 0l.jpg - 9l.jpg)
\hyphenatedurl{http://1904.cc/~aether/m/} (images named 0m.jpg - 9m.jpg)

\hyphenatedurl{http://10111.org/~aether/0/} (images named 0x.jpg - 9x.jpg)
\hyphenatedurl{http://10111.org/~aether/1/} (images named 0x.jpg - 9x.jpg)
\hyphenatedurl{http://10111.org/~aether/x/} (images named 0x.jpg - 9x.jpg)

if you use a webcam software that has a non-customisable naming
scheme, tell me how the images are named and we will make a specific
windows webcam softs:
\hyphenatedurl{http://lundie.ca/fwink/}
\hyphenatedurl{http://www.webcam2000.info/}

we could fix an appointment for this evening or some other day to do a
sort of jam session...

it works beter at speed 2.
anyway there are only, maybe, 5 frames... i don't know, maybe 9...
and i was trying to send 33 frames. to put it more fluide. not so
interrupted. because we can not talk about movement or video. it is
diaphorama. then we have to concive something to play the material
this way.
unfortunaly we can not play with the "persistence retinnienne" in any
way if things work like this.

indeed we could implement a version with a longer loop, like 33 frames.
the reason of having only 9 images is that there
will be a quicker "live" refresh. with 33 images,
you will cycle a lot through the same images
before you see anything new.
but we have to test it.
also, for the persistance retinienne, i will try
to build this hi-speed htmlpage.
but it seems also clear that at higher speeds,
even the javascript-code isn't able to refresh
the images correctly... still a trick has to be
found

proposal for a jam session:
date: this friday, title: "electronic cafe international"
concept: broadcast from a café/ public location
with internet access, using possibly a mobile
computing device (of course exceptions are
possible for locations where showing up publicly
with a laptop would endanger your security..)
please send a mail to tell if you will
participate, then i'll attribute the frames.

what's the best global performance time?
i propose this: 10 PM in europe = 1 PM in
california = 3 PM in colombia = 6 AM in australia
(poor australia.. one hour later would be possible too..)

and btw a new patch is here: \hyphenatedurl{http://1904.cc/kode/upload\_103.pat.zip}
it works at a smaller size (the actual size at
which the images are displayed on the web
interface)
and there is a control of the speed of the video
(can be useful to slow it down, to match the

ok. bypass the refresh and the re-direct.
attached code to tell browser to get image every x mmseconds.
in the code here:
/* the magic call that tells the browser (window)
to call the changeimage function every 1000ms (1 sec) */
window.setInterval(changeimage, 1000);
the url of the photos on the server change for each square, these have to be changed in the code also. for now i have: \hyphenatedurl{"http://www.1904.cc/~aether/frame\_k/0k.jpg"} (0-9)

it has to be tested to see how many images the array can take, the buffer size, etc. if you give me the correct url for the photos i can do this... in any case, for now attached code (html + javascript only), comments are very explicative, curtosy of a mate...

1.1 [*] 1904.cc 1.1 [*]

16.05.2007

\stylemail

hi all,

busy week, in belgrade for a few days. but here
are some thoughts, + some extracts of our recent
chat chatter.

a) technical considerations

some explanations about the HTML interface:
open \hyphenatedurl{http://www.1904.cc/~aether/control\_panel.html}
click on "open mainframe"
try the different buttons:

mode 1,2,3 are cycling 10 images
(1: refresh every 4 seconds, 2: every second, 3: 5 frames per second)

in mode "33", 33 images are loaded and cycled at
high speed (actually 8 images per second).
this speed couldn't be obtained if the page was
refreshing each image everytime it's read.
therefore, the images are refreshed at a much
slower speed, 1 img per second.
so if the performer is transmitting, the loop
will be changing very slowly over time.

[23:52] ideacritik: 33 is wild... but i get all the same images after a while.
[23:52] fe2cruz: it just takes a few seconds for the browser to catch up

in mode 1,2,3, each image is refreshed at the
moment it is played. so this is closer to
"realtime", but it also limits the speed at which
the images can cycle.

b) general speed considerations:

[23:54] ideacritik: i think the speed change is a
bit 'gadjetty' myself (though the 33 is certainly
hilarious!)
[23:54] dspstv: 33 is far to much for what is
being uploaded.. not enuf images to make a
sentence
[23:54] dspstv: it loops to fast
[23:54] dspstv: imo
[23:55] ideacritik: 2 is ok.
[0:25] cym: the problem with speed 33 is that you must first have 33 images :-)
[0:25] cym: 33 images that sort of go together

c) GRID FORMAT: 6 or 9 frames

[0:27] fe2cruz: are we stuck with 6 for now? or
can we jump back to 9 on the next jam test?
[0:28] ideacritik: it's just a question of adjusting the html page.
[0:28] ideacritik: not a big deal.
[0:28] cym: if there are 9 people that take part it should work?
[0:28] ideacritik: the 9 square grid was aesthetically pleasing.
[0:29] cym: i liked the 9 grid very much

Comment: 6 frames was really for testing only,
with a one-screen computer it's much easier like
that, when you need to share the screen between,
the HTML frames, the chat, the upload software...
9-frame setting should stay imo the standard for
the actual performance.

d) the noble art of patching:

[0:17] fe2cruz: does anyone know how to write this patch for PD?
[0:18] boris\_: not me.
[0:18] cym: i would like to have a look at it
[0:19] fe2cruz: can someone on MAX post screen
captures of the patch? would that help at all?

no time for that this week, but more explanations
about the inner workings of the patch will
follow. also, i just discovered through the max
list (thanks to a guy called vade who did an
interesting webcam project:
that could improve the receiving part of the
patch significantly and eventually allow it to

e) concept + content

[0:23] cym: i would be very interested to try to
create a play, a story for those slow refreshing
cameras
[0:23] dspstv: exactly
[0:23] cym: i actually like the idea that there
is a new image only every second or even slower
[0:23] dspstv: agree
[0:23] fe2cruz: so is 33 just too much? too
gittery should we keep it simple and stick with 1
\& 2 speeds?
[0:24] cym: with 9 cams in a grid it should be
possible to create a nice effect, even when the
changes are slow
[0:24] paulav: maybe
[0:25] paulav: il like the possibility of speeds,
but if it doesnt work very good?

[0:51] boris\_: yes, images are important and as
cym was saying it would be good to work on some
good script that would be playable by 6 (or
better: 9) remoters and image per image... maybe
packets of images , not necessarly in oreder 1 to
33 but also a reset all function would be very
usefull

Comment: yes, we need to develop some narrative
outline. Concept proposal: GHOST STORY (Ghost
Stories from Medellin, from the Californian
desert, from the Austrian woods, from the Swiss
heights..... we would also really need some
Japanese or Korean ghost involved .. think Kairo).
Also with our 9-frame split-screen setup, maybe
some inpiration could come from such
split-narration epics as the Canterbury Tales,
the Manuscript of Saragossa....

f) some more possible applications:
again very short term, if someone of you would
have time and motivation to put together material
for an application, would be great.

best,
manuel

remote fairytales - performance invitation

\styleinfos bk

06.06.2007

\stylemail

Dear aethernauts

the next performance of the aether9 group will be on Thursday 14th of
june, online and in brussels
at 7 PM in europe = 10 AM california = noon in colombia
in an audience packed gallery in the center of  Brussels (n3krozoft Ltd
will occupy this space for 3 days (see the attached flyer). the
performance and the exhibit is called
"remote fairytales, contes lontains, fabel op afstand"
(last expression is flemmish - brussels is bilingual french/flemish.
flemish is very very close to dutch).

the idea for this performance:

1) on location in brussels, next to the screen, there will be 2 persons
on stage:
- Deirdre Foster (she is a storyteller and actress from Geneva) - she
will tell her version on the classical tale (from the Grimm brothers)
"La jeune fille sans mains" (The girl without hands -->
\hyphenatedurl{http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The\_Girl\_Without\_Hands).}
- Me, Boris, i will be conferencing the audience about the reunion of an
important group of patchers (i'm almost over writing this
conference-like text extrapolating from my aether9 experience!)
we will intermingle our texts and form a strange dialogue.
our idea is that Deirdre \& I will be quite confused about what is going
on: i will begin my conference by adressing myself to the audience in a
similar way and setting (chair, table, lamp) than academic conferences
are usually given, with the intention of informing he audience. Deirdre,
dressed in a ... fancy way,  will then "interrupt me" and start telling
her tale, with the intention of enchanting her audience. I will react by
answering to her, in my conference mode, but with the intention of
understanding what Deirdre is doing here. Deirdre will continue her
tale, with the intention of unveiling the question: what am i doing in a
digital-media performance? i thought i was in a storyteller convention!
etc. and our dialogue will go on according to what happens between us
two, the audience and aether9 screens, but we will always stick more or
less to the stories we wrote.

2) remote aether9 part:
in parralel to the stage action, aether9 remote action will flow on the
screen (maybe 2 screens).
we didn't develop any script yet. but we want to.
the script will integrate formal and narrative elements related to the
stage action.
sometimes the stage action will be on standby for the screen action to
take all the attention. in these moments, formal elements of aether9
will prevail.
when the stage action will be running, the narrative elements of aether9
wil prevail, providing a visual tale.
i guess that there will be an \stylerefmailchat{IRC}\stylerefroad{7}{49} channel for aether9 with somebody in
brussels giving cues for actions.
our texts are in french and should be translated to some extent in
english for everybody to grasp the stories...  well for Deirdre's tale,
the basis is on the net and for mine i'll adress this later today.
we wish that all remote performers have a common "neutral" set , for
instance something simple like : a table with a chair, a neutral wall, a
picture on the wall, a book and paper + pen  or typemachine on the table.
this in order to avoid total randomness of the visual aspect and
confusion for the viewers (online especially), in order to have some unity.
not all performers would be perorming at the same time, and it would be
good to have a common neutral state in a way.

3) sound
- there will be some sound environnment in the brussel performance.
somebody will be in charge of the sound diffusion.
we are not thinking of stremaing the sound for the moment.
- we would like to invite you to \stylerefmailtech{upload}\stylerefroadrwdonly{14} some sound files on
aether at artslashmedia.\stylerefmailtech{ftp} \stylerefmailtech{server}\stylerefroadfwdonly{48} in the >web >"sounds\_remote\_fairytales"
folder
- please view D. Lynch "rabbit" project for interesting sound treatment
(in our view...)
--> here are 2 videos:
\hyphenatedurl{http://www.bzzp.biz/temp/}
(1st episode: full first episode, 10min
fragment: 2 min extract)
- you could also record yourselves saying short sentences (cf. lynch again).

4) rehearsals
- on the 13th of june, one day before the performance, we should do a
videocheck to see how everything is running in the gallery (at the same
time scheduled for the next day's performance.)
- this friday (8th of june), we would like to do a jam session.
this session will adress technical problems (the aether9 system was
working well on the "electronic café international" session of the 10th
of may.
since manuel has been working more on the \stylerefmailpatch{Patch}\stylerefroad{670}{48} and we need to \stylerefmailscience{test}\stylerefroad{32}{49} the
we will also write some script with formal elements to test how it goes.
for instance:
- the table setting described before
- make a cross between the 9 screens
- 2 persons making phone calls at the same time
etc.

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

so,
who will participate in this landmark performance?
- to my knowledge, the following aethernauts said that in principle they
Nathalie from paris, Audrey from holland, Paula from medellin, cym from
walkendorf, Chris from yorba linda - california.
i guess that a group from geneva will do a part too.
- Dr. Gomez \& the league?
- Rhys from australia? (i heard that he would use puppets - that would
be good - performance time in au. would be early early in the morning.)
- Johan from berlin?
- Milena from the brazil group?
- Laure form the Kingdom of belgium?

--
so we need to know asap:
who will be there for the jam session this friday
who wishes to take part in the "remote fairytales" perfomance on the
14th of june (and, if possible, the rehearsal on the 13th of june).

all ideas, suggestion, disagreements etc. welcome and awaited!!!
i love this team!
looking forward,

any other way we can find)
+ darkness (not total)

- anything that has to do with the "Girl without hands" tale is welcome.

table, a chair and sombody (you?) sitting behind the table, perfect!
(would be nice to try this all at the same time).

last news and performance preparation

\styleinfos bk

09.06.2007

\stylemail

hello aethernauts,

we jammed yesterday with
laure\_bruxell1, paula\_\-medellin, manu\_geneva, boris\_brussel2 and
+
christiaan\_california, cym\_walkendorf, ideakritik\_rotterdam and the
league\_california (chat only)
no script was established so it began \stylerefmailslow{slowly}\stylerefroad{670}{226} in a quite \stylerefmailthemes{random}\stylerefroad{623}{170} jam, then
ideakritik brilliantly gave cues according to elements of the "girl
without hands" tale. it lasted 3 hours or so.

--

technical conclusions:
- the viewing 9frame html page works great (i attached some screenshots,
some slots are black because we weren't 9)

this means that the transmission system for next thursday's performance
is fully fonctional!

--

practical conclusions:

- we all agreed that it is extremely helpfull to be 2 persons for the
performance, for example:
1 person in charge of following the \stylerefmailchat{IRC}\stylerefroadrwdonly{47} chat for the cues, for the
computer manipulations and the camera manipulations
1 person in charge of the image (as actor, puppetist, drawer etc)

- we need a fine tuned script - this script should be finished on
wednesday at the latest. (see my propositions below)
- each performer needs a clear method. everybody develops one naturally,
but it's better to find it before the performance than during the
performance... will you use a fix or moving camera?  etc etc.
we need law\&order: more the formal aspects are defined, the better it
"feels" (knowing that anyway it will be quite hazardeous - i like this
struggle).
it's possible at any time now to upload images and visualise it on

- perform simple \& small things
we may think that what we are uploading is not "rich" or interesting
enough, but then we forget that there are 8 other images!

- react quicky \& act slowly
it's difficult to be all alert \& super fast to react to cues and in the
same way remember not to rush the action

- obviously prepare a maximum of stuff before the beggining, in this way
you can concentrate on less things during the performance.

maxers:
- use the 109 for upload and the htlm 9frame page to view (not the more
complex upload\_107 patch, wich may crash)
- use the start/stop button often - do not constantly upload images.
press the stop button to rearrange the setting and prepare for next actions.
pressing once "start" then immediatly press "stop" will upload just one
image. this is great to create controlled animations (although it's hard
to control the order of the images, but it's verry fun nevertheless).

--

proposals for the basis of the script:
- the script form in grid that we used for the first aether9 performance
was great i think.

- it is now certain that we will use the "Girl Without Hands" tale.
Deirdre will tell it during the performance in brussels (we don't know
exaclty "how")

- think it would be efficient and elegant to make a clear distinction
between when we upload "formal" elements (like "film an empty desk
before an empy chair") and "narrative" elements like
("The devil sends a messenger to kill the queen and daugther!")

i guess some of us prefer to do a performance with emphasis on formal
visuals, while others are more interested in emphasizing the
video-storytelling - it's different types of freedom and constraint.
both aspects are very important but cannot realistically be reunited by
every single performer yet (because it would need so much preparation).
one way to do this would be to have a constant distinction on the screen
between who is working "fomal" and who is working "narrative".
yesterday when everybody displayed an empty chair - the impression was
striking! common action works, and they never fail to create an
extremely deep impression.
but the formal elements should always be thought of as going with the
tale in a way but not interpretating it litterally.
all this shall be scripted of course.

- the n3krozoft team can edit the script according to all the input on
the mailing list and related discussions, but if somebody or a group
wants to take the responsability to put this sript together, it would be
a great relief for us (because we are also in the rush of preparing the
exhibit: building fine zoetropes, editing dvd's, printing very large
video stills and more...). Please anonce it asap if you want to do this.

--

lineup for thursday the 14th:

sure: cym, laure, paula, nathalie, christiaan
maybe: geneva, amirali:teheran, ideakritik
no news: johan (berlin), alejo
--> so we aren't ready yet participation-wise (there won't be any live
performance in the brussel gallery space itself.)

lookking forward,
boris

pd patch

cym net

12.06.2007

\stylemail

hello all,

a friend of mine wrote a patch for pd last night that should do the
same thing as the max/jitter patch (upload images from the live webcam
stream to the server via ftp, naming them img1 to img33 and when they
reach 33 start again with img1).

if anyone of you is working with debian linux pd i can send the patch.
in general he would be interested to share and test the patch with
anyone.

also, he would be interested to join the jam session tomorrow.
his name is Nova Viator (or Luka Princic) and you can find more

brussels performance report

\styleinfos bk

16.06.2007

\stylemail

hello all,

we just opened the gallery this morning in brussels for the last day of
the exhibit here.

i write now a little performance report

/////
1. Mother Nature
when mother nature invited herself
it started to rain and rain and rain
and all at once, water filtered through the roof
of the large performance hall
and poured in buckets on our command table
we ran to unplug the curent and move tables in the dark
to protect the computers and cameras and stuff
the sound was ear-crushing: torrential rain
in 5 minutes, there was 5 cm of water everywhere
and we where soaked... and sort of annoyed...
so we rushed to transfer everything from the big hall to the
smaller exhibit hall
while the lady-gallerist was calling the fire department
/////
2. Action
quite stessfull we managed to be not too late for the beginning
and the performance started in front of about 30 people (that where
brave enough to come in spite of the exceptional storm)
some more walked in during the show
they where welcomed with champagne and other drinks
Deirdre told the tale in a baroque white dress colored by the projection
rays
Chloe mixed discreet sounds \& music
Boris told his story sitting in front of the audience on a desk while
trying to film his part of the tale.
Manuel managed the projected images and chated on the \stylerefmailchat{Skype}\stylerefroad{49}{100} conference
/////
3. Audience reaction
some people where quite confused, but most of them liked it to put it
simply and shortly.
///////
4. Debriefing
it was hard to be fully concentrate under these climatic conditions -
but it was exciting...
- as there was no actual stage anymore, Deirdre found it extremely
difficult to properly perform her craft, storytelling. she also feels
frustration that we didn't have enough time to prepare a more refined
"mise en scene" between her and Boris.
- Manuel was trying to give cues according to Deirdre's words, and
obviously it was going much too quick for the remote performers (\& for
manuel also who had to solve some techicalities...) - it was a BIG
mistake to do so. we apologize for that. a better thing would be for the
performers to switch between acts every 3 minutes for instance - like
that everything would be co-ordinated whitout questions...
it is a shame really that the performers weren't able to display their
work in a calm manner with sufficient time to do so. this will not
happen again.
- Boris is basically satisfied of the opportunity to read loud his

i will be making tree-color pasta (fusilli tricolori) with tomato

in fact i am eating the pasta right now already and didn't start
making the sauce yet, but i will try to do that still later tonight to
have all the material ready for tomorrow

i need to first download the movies of the first part and charge the
batteries before i can continue the second part of cooking. it takes
quite some planning to cook a meal online

are there any other recipes? does anyone else already know what s/he will cook?

by the way, the three colored pasta i used is green, orange and white.
i might stick to those colors also with the vegetables and add the \stylerefmailred{red}\stylerefroad{65}{93}
tomatoes as a contrast...

any suggestions how to add numbers and formulas to the recipe?

there is a workaround.

i'm attaching a modified patch. (02b)
no different names, no shell object. just one png
generated in /tmp/aether9.png

long commandline like this:

ID=0; while (true); do if ((expr \$ID '>' 8)); then ID=0; else ID=expr \$ID '+' 1; fi; cat /tmp/aether9.png \textbar{} ncftpput -u aether -p PASSWORD -c HOSTNAME \\$ID\textbackslash{}x.png;  sleep 1; done

it's also in the patch, but you have to type it, so rather copypaste from here.

in the patch change [pdp\_noise] to whatever else you want.
there is also a [receive] object - [r aetherone] so you can send video signals from some other opened patch with a send object like this: [s aetherone]

sleep 1 means wait one second (+ time it needs to upload). you can adjust this.

hope it helps

i had a look to one of the chats alejo pointed to: \hyphenatedurl{http://home.gabbly.com/}
super easy to embed... for bulgaria it would be no problem. (the
simplest way is to type gabbly.com/ in front of the url of the page you
visit, and all others visitors doing the same will be reunited in a
chatroom embedded on the visited url...)
issues are:
it eats quite some place on a web page.
the design is... what it is - but more horrifying is the ad embed in the
top corner of the \stylerefmailchat{chat}\stylerefroad{57}{114} (i did not understand if we can replace it by

hi all,
here is a possible setup for the Hotel Pleven performance (changes
are possible of course):

laure(gva).JPG \textbar{} cym+luka.PNG \textbar{} audrey(rdam).JPG

chris.JPG      \textbar{} boris.JPG    \textbar{} league.JPG

objects        \textbar{} objects      \textbar{} objects

the audio player is now a bit more hidden, see the new interface
from: \hyphenatedurl{http://1904.cc/aether/live/}

since we had some trouble (uncontrollable delays) with the .ru
servers, i propose to drop them for now.

also, after some longer testing, it seems that png has a tendency to
be quite heavier than jpg, specially with very colourful/contrasted
material. so, since the \stylerefmailpatch{Max}\stylerefroadfwdonly{114} \stylerefmailpatch{Patch} has now a contrast function, i
suggest we switch back to jpg (not for the \stylerefmailpatch{pd}\stylerefroadrwdonly{56} users though).

this are now the corresponding \stylerefmailtech{ftp}\stylerefroad{65}{114} directories:

frame 1 - \hyphenatedurl{ftp://1904.cc/1/}  format: jpg
frame 2 - \hyphenatedurl{ftp://1904.cc/2/}  format: png
frame 3 - \hyphenatedurl{ftp://imaginaryscience.org/3/}  format: jpg

frame 4 - \hyphenatedurl{ftp://imaginaryscience.org/4/}  format: jpg
frame 5 - \hyphenatedurl{ftp://10111.org/web/5/}  format: jpg
frame 6 - \hyphenatedurl{ftp://10111.org/web/6/}  format: jpg

frame 7 - \hyphenatedurl{ftp://artslashmedia.net/web/7/} - OBJECTS
frame 8 - \hyphenatedurl{ftp://artslashmedia.net/web/8/} - OBJECTS
frame 9 - \hyphenatedurl{ftp://artslashmedia.net/web/9/} - OBJECTS

note: user is "aether" for all servers, except imaginaryscience.org
where the user is aether

note2: for frame 6 (league), there is only 1 self-refreshing png
file, called 1.png

note3: i didn't include myself among the performers - will have a
busy day tomorrow and preparing the technical/html stuff + preparing
the performance/finding the objects will be hardly possible.

if any of you needs special settings (filenames etc), tell me as soon
as you can.

best,
manuel

hello,

leaving brussels pc-naked made it quite hard for me to
organise tomorrows performance and was also very busy.
so couldnt take part so much to the wiki and script
elaboration.
i am and will be for tomorrow  located in france
(high-savoy), i still have a  few technical problems
but it should be solved by tomorrow midday. cross
finger.

the place where i here grab the net, is in a kind of
basement
and for me it actualy seems easier to use a window
that is ground high, then a  door. i dont know, if
considering this i should be placed somewhere else in
the nine screen strucure.

maybe i can find a solution with a door but cant
confirm it right now

for the four objects i was thinking of:

2. hunting gun
3. hat(s)
4. mountain boots

boris, i dont expect you to have these important
things at home, but you can also use the color or hand
gesture to make contact with them

or if its not considered usefulll enough for bulgaria
( desk type)

1. pencil sharpner
2. hair brush
3. embrella
4. goggles

and so on . theres such a mess of objects in this
place
i must make a tactico-narrativ choice

i will send the pictures for the slide show tomorrow
for midday

more in a few hours
gotta catch up some sleep

laure.

Thoughts, and a riddle

\styleinfos Lucy H G

19.07.2007

\stylemail

Quick thoughts!

I think this project in Bulgaria is a bit of a riddle - the script and
performance - figure out as you go - search/consume/share.  The first aether
project with its highly developed storyline, pseudo-\stylerefmailscience{science}\stylerefroad{65}{149} and mythological
themes still holds the most for me...  It was quite fun to do, and I think
it is because of the intensive scripting - even though this made it more
challenging.

I like the subject/object- consumerism theme for this unnamed last piece,
but I think timing is essential.  Coordination of objects moved from frame
to frame, etc.  Perhaps we are all in our own space time bubbles - we are
still quite disconnected during these performances, and I think a live audio
conference between us would help us to synchronize, as well as get to know
one another.

this study of an object, of coordination, of passing items through the frame
and communicating more "physically" with one other?  Boris had called for us
to simplify, I think...  With very little setup or concept - just play
catch, as it were.

personally, i like to see aether 9 as a band that is playing live
concerts. (or a theatre group that is doing theatre shows, but for me
it is easier to compare it to a band)
a band has a set of songs that they perform live. they practise the
songs until they know them and can play them on the stage. they have a
set of material and can change the set/order a little for each
performance, and also create moments in the performance that leave
space for improvisation. but still the basic structure is very clear
for each band member. and at the same time it doesn't get boring to
perform the same songs/compositions (or same theatre play) again and
again.

understanding the feeling of people involved in 'meat space'...
anyway, i feel there is certain beauty (if i may use such a term here)
in the efforts and connections that are happening here, and during the
performances.

i'm also learning a lot about group performance and how things are
bringing people closer together. the people who are performing, and the
notions of distance and global and speed and time and place and space.
i wish i had more theoretical tools to explain more precisely what i
mean. but poetics can be also quite telling.

i will/can work on a \stylerefmailpatch{pd}\stylerefroadrwdonly{114} \stylerefmailpatch{Patch}\stylerefroadfwdonly{323} and linux-enabled approaches to aether9.

in response to 'getting to know each other' - as i also see this as a crucial element in a collaborative performance. especially since we cannot for the most part meet each other physically, small tidbits of knowledge become the extent of what we know about each other. these tiny tidbits are therefore also the only thing we have to go on in so far as expectation or imagination of how the other will act during a performance. in our excitement over 'the patches', have we perhaps overlooked that we must not only play, but play together? the person who 'assisted' me last performance was amazed at how little attention we payed to each others performances, 6 little autisms neatly assembled on a page. perhaps getting to know each other, even if only through these unsatisfactory mediums, is a start towards an aether9 embodied performance as opposed to several individuals operating in the same screen though otherwise seemingly detached.

i was lucky enough to meet cym last week in austria as well as to attend the workshop in geneva where i of course met manu/aether9, alejo and others who are more or less inactive for the moment. i am based in rotterdam. i've just finished my MA in media design. my thesis is about the interaction/affect between media and our mourning process, and how we perceive death. as in many of my endeavors, i interviewed many people about this very idea and incorporated their accounts into my final project/thesis. i am explaining this only because my somewhat anthropological methodology outlines one of my main interests in this group;  how do remote performers work together, communicate, make decisions, disagree, in short, form a group. the limitations of our \stylerefmailchat{communication}\stylerefroad{114}{134} media form a particular set of 'constraints' which inherently shape our performance together. perhaps my use of the word constraints is not just because it is usually derogatory. i see these
constraints as borders from which to work with, in the same light as our 'low-tech one frame per second' refresh speed. i do not wish the frames to load quicker or to attain the perfect resolution. i prefer to take on this dimension and exploit it, in all its 'dramaturgical' glory. in the same way, i think we should exploit our 'thwarted' methods of communication. we often throw together a script at the last moment and more or less blindly perform all together without knowing what each other is doing. could we take this on as some sort of methodology? could this be made explicit as a performance tool? in this vein, i can imagine that we use simple 'unification' props such as text (which we have yet to integrate successfully but in which i have confidence). these props could be constant during each performance, and this aspect would be practiced, but the rest could be 'off the cuff' or improvised as usual. as cym noted, using text, written on a piece of
paper as we did in the first performance, was really nice. this is an idea which i feel is a beautiful metaphor for our communication together if it is used to communicate between frames during a performance. i imagine inmates passing each other notes between jailcells, all being watched on simultaneously by the jailguard on nine tiny screens hooked up to those surveillance cameras. we use the technology but we still attempt to communicate with paper and pen... this could be a constant which we can rehearse... for example.

i hope this hasn't been too much of a digression to describe my feeling/desire to incorporate our communication process implicitly in our performances as well as to keep some things constant in order to refine our practice, focus our experiments.

i just spent the whole week in ljubljana teaching 18 students
HTML/webdesign (from 10am till 21pm every day..), so maybe i am
focused a bit too much on such details, but anyway.. the interface
looks really nice in firefox and would be good if it looks the same in
explorer...

anyway, i am right now watching, waiting for the performance to start.
some of my students also said they will watch tonight, so it would be
good to put some message or something online, that performance is
starting 30 mins later. I am not sure if it is enough just that the
number of seconds how long to wait keeps on changing. would be better
to put a line on the bottom that says
* performance will start 30 mins later - 22:30 CET *

okay, i will keep on watching and waiting and take some photos

hi all,
i am just now going through all the aether mails. as you know i am offline. in addition to that, the dv tape of the WORM performance has rather embarassingly ended up in someone else's camera which is now in turkey and etc so i won't even get my paws on the thing for another whole week. for this disorganisation i apologise as i find the immediacy of watching the performance from the 'outside' very important for critique. once i get the tape i'll be on the case asap.

a\textbar{}idea

ps some feedback i received :
-it would have been interesting if the actions performed/mimiked by the actors have a connection to the medium, its limitations, politics, etc. rather than just stretching for example...
-the storyline was not very clear
-it was not clear whether the brussels/geneva performances were live or recorded (which made the tension very interesting - or the intrigue).
-the cues which i gave to nicola (by whispering into a microphone) were for some very nice, bringing my role in the performance more clear and also adding to the intrigue of not knowing if the cues go to nicola or also to the other actors (who is guiding who?). for others much for the same reason a bit confusing, why those cues? (i.e. front/back/left/enter/leave/apple/...) they seemed too \stylerefmailthemes{random}\stylerefroad{49}{178}.

in general the feedback was positive and the critical points were brought up because they saw potential in the project.

that's all for now. still reading the last 20 aether mails... :S

> music:
- i didn't produced anything, contradictory to what i announced
- do we want to use Beethoven’s Piano Trio?
If yes, do we want to respect more or less the indications from Beckett
OR do we want to freely play with this trio, with mixed loops or samples
for example? (i understand that the uploaded music is only a fraction of
the second movement of the trio. all the music indicated by Beckett
commes from this second movement. i do not have the full piece - i
uploaded, for the sake of the example, the part that goes with "Act1,
l.31" - i also uploaded a couple nice loops).
- There's very little (faint) music in the original indications
- If we decide to use musical elements, is there sound appart from this
music, for example do we want to stream some sounds of aint winds? Or
"pastel noise"?
- Judy, how do you generally feel this music part? What are your ideas?

I called the agency here in NYC about the rights. They have never done anything for live and on-line for anything they represent and have not had any request for this TV play while she has worked there. The agent I spoke with said she would like a write up of what we are doing emailed to her     kate \{a+\}  gbagency.com      so that she might pass it along to Edward Beckett (owns the estate) who lives in England....to request permission and establish a fee for performance rights.

I too suggest we wait. There is not time before Saturday. JUDY

At some point we must consider the ways around this because we will not receive this man's blessing at any price. However, if everything remains web-based in its production and presentation, he will have nowhere to drop his lawsuits \& 'cease and desist' orders. We will have to change the name of the play/never call it an adaptation and perhaps morph it into something else......in my opinion......possibly retaining Beckett himself as the character (f)

today's reheasal & re-write of announcement

\styleinfos Judy Nylon

14.12.2007

\stylemail

We’re presenting a live multi-based web link up on Saturday December 15th. Loosely adapted from a theater piece written in 1975, taped in ‘76 and televised on BBC2 in 1977. We are mixing it with a bit of dub on classic piano and samples.  It is a parallel universe played out in the same slice of time as the first wave of British punk. The language will be English. The development of live storytelling without a single fixed location is on going.

My fellow aethernauts and I would be delighted if you would join us on-line at our first \stylerefmailthemes{chance}\stylerefroad{170}{255} to bring this piece from TV to a wider audience. It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing and you won’t have to worry about how you’re getting home.

Members of Aether9 will be performing from different locations:  Medellin, Yorba Linda, NYC , Brussels, Geneva, and Paris. The audience, those in the same room, will be joined at ‘Videomedja 2007’ at the Museum of Vojvodina, Novi Sad, Serbia, by two Aether9 artists from Austria and Slovinia who will host the Q \& A which follows the performance.

There are no complicated programs or hardware involved. It is easier than getting out of the house. I hope you will look through our site at  www.1904.cc where the collaborative process involved is quite transparent, our project laid out, and participants named. Here we will make the links “to set up your computer” so easy that you will practically fall through them to the new venue.

You will need to go through one link to find out what the time will be where you are, when it is Saturday at 11:15 PM in Serbia. The second link opens the audience viewing window and a third link leads to instructions to stream sound.

Re: feedback: Beyond the compliments and stirring of the imagination the useful thoughts from friends were as follows: 1) an actor said that it still lacks emotive room in the small screens and we might insert extreme close-up shots to allow us to receive the interior part of the acting. OR...soon maybe we will be able to feature that one square larger when something like that is going on in the script. 2) a filmmaker in Berlin loved the piece and was familiar with  Beckett and seemed to know that it was impossible to get the rights to do any adaptations of Beckett's plays.  Her only critical comment (among lots of praise) was that the credits were  impossible to follow and she wasn't wild about the handwritten  "live from  wherever" cards.  I thought seeing everyone on camera for a second was reminiscent  of the informal credits on a Doris Dorrie film. I liked it. 3) I had one person who is close to 70 years say that she couldn't get to it and that the interface still
wasn't easy enough. I mention her because she is someone who has a foundation that gives grants and we do want to get everybody to be able to see what we do. 4) tomorrow at their Xmas party, I will hear if anyone at HWKs (www.harvestworks.org) saw this and will start them thinking about sponsoring us to have a gig at the New Museum which just opened a state of the art building on the Bowery a couple of weeks ago. I have been to Location1 (the art space I mentioned before) and feel that they have very little to offer us.

Onward....Thanks one and all...good show, it was a pleasure.  Judy
