you can adopt ascii chewy

(0)

Jason Van Anden:
Hi Again,

I am not sure if its ascii fatigue or what but I did not get much of a response from my posting about my new piece: ascii chewy. Perhaps I did not describe it well enough - so I will take another shot:

"ascii chewy" is an ascii based emotive life form and improvisational comic strip that dwells within your browser.

Its written entirely in javascript. It is intended to be adopted and hosted via iframes on OPS (other people's sites). Chewy's behavior will become more articulate and interesting as I have the time to add to his re-pet-oire. I am offering him to non-commercial websites for free via a Creative Commons license.

Everything you need to know about this can be found here:

ascii chewy does not require powerpoint.

Which one of you early adopters would like to be the earliest?

Global Headphone Festival

[Though it looks to be quite dysfunctional, this sucker sends the streaming Plug signal around the globe [Photo: Keith Axline].] "...In some ways Plug, held here Saturday, is just what you'd expect from a music fest: rotating performances in front of a live audience, socializing and plenty of beer. But the headphones (bring your own) replace a traditional concert's amplified speakers, and much of the socializing happens over a computer terminal linked to an IRC chat room, populated by members of the global audience listening to the performances over the internet...

The 13 hours of performances represented San Francisco's turn at the global le placard headphone festival, which hits cities all over the world, including London, Montreal, Paris, Brussels and Nagoya, Japan. Each city hosts a headphone party for a given period, in this case one day, before handing off the feed to the next location. Theoretically, this continues for 97 days in the hopes of providing one nonstop experience, though there are gaps in the schedule." From Fest Rocks With BYO Headphones by Keith Axline, Wired.

Kurt Coble: PAM Band
The P.A.M. Band (Partially Artificial Musicians), is a synthesis of kinetic sculpture, musical composition, theater, and technology. The concept is the rediscovery of the rich tradition of the automata, while responding to contemporary cultural issues, without using MIDI technology. The project takes the notion of musical invention to a deeper level. At the heart of P.A.M. Band instruments is a motion control card that allows for the precise manipulation of servo motors, solenoids, and DC motors. The "feel" of the energy released by the motors informs me of the nature of the potential sounds and instruments to be investigated. The first phase of the project feature mechanical solutions for traditional musical instruments, with the hint of prototypical instruments not far behind. Sequences that run the programmable motors are written in C++.
