Soundmaps


Hi all

Soundmaps makes music out of your desktop actions. Soundmaps translates
a part of the bitmap image on your desktop into sound.
Drawing, typing, surfing, playing a movie etc. will constantly change
the sound. Hence, you are making your own music while working.
Soundmaps has 6 different modes and is very easy to install and use.
Everyone should be able to play with it.
Soundmaps http://www.bram.org/sound/soundmaps_download.html

Soundmaps is made by Jan de Weille. We made some sound pieces with it
together. http://www.bram.org/sound
The online version is a simple user friendly version.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: NYT review of ArtBase 101


Hello all,

I am on digest, so I only now read your discussion on the artbase101 show. While reading (I skipped some) I wondered why there was so little discussion about the concept of the show itself. (maybe I missed something earlier)

How can you expect a visitor of a show with 40 artists to have more than a superficial glance. In contemporary art only big events like biennales show that much artists in one show. What I mean to say is the article might be the mirror of the show. This is my first point.

Besides most web works are made to be viewed by a person sitting all alone in front of his/her screen in his/her own surroundings/intimacy. I do think that changing the visiting conditions (walking around between computers, going physically from one object to another) changes the 'content' of a lot off works. So again the article might be the mirror of the show.

best Annie Abrahams
ps
I have not seen the show (I live in France). Could anyone describe the show, an url, photo's?
