The performance practice of the Hub--interactive computer network music--is discussed. Particular focus is placed on the impact of changes in technology. Future applications and directions of this musical approach are discussed.”

By analyzing artworks that use these telecommunications technologies, it is possible to differentiate between various models of agency and suggest their epistemological and ontological implications.”

Université de Valenciennes Lavoisier: Hermes Science Publications.
  • The influence of hypermedia on musical artistic practice is considered. Qualities unique to hyperlink listener interaction and network infrastructure are taken as the fundamental basis to define a musical language for the medium. Network topology creates a space distinct from the time-specific event space traditionally associated with musical performance. Hypermedia access makes the listener a participant in an evolutionary compositional process. This situation puts in question traditional roles of composer and performer. Two network music works are discussed, an installation that juxtaposes network and acoustic space, and a net.audio project where the composer's role becomes one of creating an empty musical shell.

  • “The notion of performance is introduced as a design approach to the creation of interactive digital environments. These environments can ultimately be regarded asuser-spaces; a condition which replace the art object with a configuration of interactions. Our understanding of space, as suggested by Lefevbre, defines the “inhabitant” as a full participant, a user, a performer of space. Two interactive installations by the author and works by others in the field provide a context for discussion and analysis.”

  • The availability of audio content on networks has indelibly changed access to music. We extend this dynamic to wireless ad-hoc networks and present the use of dual infrastructures to extend modes of personal and interpersonal music listening. We identify two distinct forms proximal interaction, sequential and parallel, and demonstrate a musical application for each. Mobile handheld terminals become prototypical future personal music players. They situate the listener in a wireless network space, helping him to define a personal musical sphere with respect to his architectural and social surroundings.

We have held a series of international workshop on this topic with leading projects and speakers, in order to establish a community and stimulate the development of the field. In this report, we define mobile music, and map out the field by reporting on the workshop series and accounting for the state-of-the-art.

  • “The Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) in Belfast has started to work on developing innovative approaches to the use of networks in music performance in composition, with the aim to make NMP systems as widespread and usable as possible. Much network performance research has as its goal the replication of existing performance conditions. This paper explores some possibilities in redefining relationships between musicians, performers and composers, performers and audience, performers and spaces. The aims of this research is to identify performance conditions that are only possible through the network and to reflect on how the network is changing the way we create and consume music. The paper describes different scenarios that take advantage of real-time high quality audio exchange over the internet.”

  • “The culture of laptop improvisation has grown tremendously in recent years. The development of personalized software instruments presents interesting issues in the context of improvised group performances. This paper examines an approach that is aimed at increasing the modes of interactivity between laptop performers and at the same time suggests ways in which audiences can better discern and identify the sonic characteristics of each laptop performer. We refer to software implementation that was developed for the BLISS networked laptop ensemble with view to designing a shared format for the exchange of messages within local and internet based networks.”

  • Sound technologies, particularly mobile and locative media technologies, can provide unique listening experiences within situations that are not themselves exclusive zonesfor sonic projection, meditation or exploration. This paper seeks to contribute to the understanding of locative sound design by presenting a framework consisting of three spatial archetypes: the Theatre, the Museum and the City. These serve as metaphors through which we can articulate different types of relations between listener, sound and place. The Mobile Music Player has been chosen as an example of a listeningcondition that both characterises and traverses the Theatre, the Museum and the City listening archetypes.

  • “This paper investigates the network as a site for music performance; in particular, the net’s performative conditions with the tightly linked notion of community are exposed through the medium of music as an intrinsic social practice. The paper provides a brief cultural overview of the development of the network metaphor before problematizing perspectival views of the network. By reflecting on the development of social web environments and its fragmentary nature, the authors examine the scattered viewpoints that characterize the network. The authors question the idealized view of an all-connectedness and position the human body as an interrupter of the network. In this line of thinking, the idealized models of connectivity and communication of the network become questioned. Instead, the authors look toward music performance and propose a re-thinking of this communication model and argue for a framework that, contrary to the often holistic approach to performing in the net, favors glances, fragments and desires.”

  • Notation can be seen to sit conformably between theory and practice as it symbolizes practice, generates and implements theory, and produces practice. Historically, its presence changes in significance across the development of activities such as music or architecture. From design tool to canonic text, notational artefacts both solidify and formalize practice, as will be expanded below. How, then, does the role and function of notation change with specific contemporary practices, which are by definition ill-defined and feed off fluidity and change? What is the nature of notation in distributed and collaborative practices such as improvised music or network music performance?
