Re: Turbulence Spotlight: "ASCII BUSH" by Yoshi Sodeoka

this is an incredible piece of work
it could stand on its own as audio,
let alone the ascii promises given herein

"and our union is strong"

the elation of the audio on the applause is truly scary

The TECHCLUB performance series began in the Spring of 2003 with the
event OPEN MINIJAX. Derek Morton, an artist and an independent promoter
of experimental media in Washington DC began TECHCLUB seeking to build
community among like-minded artist and musicians who explored their
artistic expression through creative uses of technology. TECHCLUB will
showcase a diversity of talent from the halls of Academia to regional
emerging artists new to their medium.

The Visitors Studio is Furtherfield project - an open, multi-user,
online arena for creative dialogue, and collective performance where we
invite you to chat, mix and upload files to participate in the creation
of new work.
