rand()% / AUTOMATED RADIO BOT /
=================================================
rand()% is a new net.radio streaming project, to
be launched on Monday 24 Nov 03.

During Ultrasound rand()% will stream the live
performances. Full schedule will follow soon.

rand()% is a realtime streaming radio station
broadcasting across the Internet.

Most web-radio stations broadcast archive
programmes or relay live DJs and audio
performances in the manner of traditional radio.
rand()% counters this predictable formula by
presenting a radio station that is entirely
automated, where every programme transmitted is
composed in real-time by computer.

If sound is a quality of spatial experience, in a
virtual environment it is first pure data. If the
machinic space of data and code can be usefully
described in architectural terms
[the software/hardware architectures] how do we
describe our experience of these?
