Year created:



Nio is an interactive visual/sound poem/song. You construct layers and

sequences of synchronized audio/animations. It suggests a new form of

music/multimedia. Instead of music videos, interactive, compositional,

instrumental, dismembered music will arise on the Web.

The project also includes two essays ('Nio and the Art of Interactive

Audio for the Web' and 'Technotes on Nio and Audio Programming with

Director 8') and some visual poems made from onion skins of the Nio


Nio is a commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its

Turbulence web site with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.
