The Famous Sounds of Absolute Wreaders (2003)

The Famous Sound of Absolute Wreaders (concept and direction: Johannes Auer) is a cooperative project by six authors or net activists and deals with writing/reading/processing on the Internet: Who is speaking? What is an author? Does the Reader become a Wreader? The project was produced in 2003 for the Austrian broadcasting company’s (ORF) 'Kunstradio' and is accessible on the Internet. The Famous Sound started with one work of digital literature per artist, to which another artist in the group reacted with a printable text. The text material created in this way was then processed by a human editor (Auer) and a text machine and finally performed in this version by two speakers for the radio program. Furthermore, six new pieces of digital literature were produced by the artists involved, as a reaction to this process.
