Mixed Reality is the merging of real and virtual worlds to produce new
environments where physical and digital objects can co-exist and interact in
real-time.

Mixed Realities is an exhibition and symposium that explores the
convergence-through cyberspace-of real and synthetic places made possible by
computers and networks. Mixed Realities links and overlays the Huret &
Spector Gallery (Boston), Turbulence.org (Internet), and Ars Virtua (Second
Life). Second Life is a shared, synthetic, 3-D environment through which
people can interact in real-time by means of a virtual self or avatar.
Although it's an imaginary place, it is often able to "masquerade as real"
(Richard Bartle) because it approximates reality persuasively enough to
facilitate player immersion. Audience members - who will be embodied as
avatars in Second Life, browsing the works at turbulence.org, and/or be
physically present in the gallery - will interact with the works and with
one another. Thus, Mixed Realities will enable people who are distributed
across multiple physical and virtual spaces to communicate with one another
and share experiences in real time.

Five works were commissioned by New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc.
specifically for the Mixed Realities exhibition. Collectively, they combine
sensor, video, sound, streaming, webcam, projection, processing, world wide
web, and 3-D technologies to produce immersive, interactive and
participatory performances and installations. They allow audiences to
experience real and fictional places simultaneously in "Imaging Beijing" and
"The Vitruvian World"; debate the value of virtual labor and currency in "No
Matter"; communicate physical data from multiple sources through "Remote";
and question mediated communication itself in "Caterwaul."

Networked Music Review Commission: "More of the Same" by LoVid


January 2, 2008
Networked_Music_Review Commission: "More of the Same" by LoVid
http://turbulence.org/works/moreofthesame/

"More of the Same" extends LoVid's investigation of electrical
irregularities and human interactions. After it loads copies of a single
sound sample, fissures in the digital veneer are explored as the spoken
communication is played back repeatedly. Though each instantiation of the
speech is identical, physical constraints affect the timing. This allows the
nature of the medium to peek through the cracks in the voices.

"More of the Same" is a 2007 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts,
Inc. for Networked_Music_Review. It was made possible with funding from the
New York State Music Fund, established by the New York State Attorney
General at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors.

Once Again + Happy Holidays


Dear Friends,

We're 10 days away from the end of our 2007 fundraising campaign. Our goal
is to raise $25,000 by the end of the year - we still have a long way to go.

We know that many of you are struggling as much as we are. However, if each
of you were to donate a mere $5.00, we would succeed.

Please go to Turbulence (http://turbulence.org) right now to find out how.
It's easy!

Happy Holidays and Warm Regards,
Jo and Helen

Networked Music Review Commission: "My Space Sound" by Sawako Kato


December 15, 2007
Networked_Music_Review Commission: "My Space Sound" by Sawako Kato
http://turbulence.org/works/MySpaceSound
Needs Mac OSX, Flash player, and fast Internet connection

"My Space Sound" is an audio popup book about the village called MySpace.
The story starts like this: "Once upon a time . there was a village called
MySpace. It is the era when so-called 'Web 2.0' is still a novelty." Users
can participate in the story by entering their MySpace URL, as well as by
just browsing the story. In a world composed of both facts and fictions
extracted from the database, the audience gets a chance to rethink the
chaotic social network space.

""My Space Sound" is the result of my fieldwork about MySpace, with some
help from my friends. It is just a tiny point or node in a huge social
network, and it is a starting point rather than an accomplishment. This is
just my story, and I am curious to know your story. "My Space Sound" is the
artistic observations and everyday sketches of the imperfect processor named
sawako about the state of networks and individuals."

"My Space Sound" is a 2007 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc.
for Networked_Music_Review. It was made possible with funding from the New
York State Music Fund, established by the New York State Attorney General at
Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors.

BIOGRAPHY

feminine touch. As a new media artist, she created "2.4GHz Scape," which
explores the urban WiFi signal scape; "ishi ~ listening stone," a sound art
piece that uses a crystal radio and stones, and an ephemeral timeline
drawing with Max/MSP/Jitter. Sawako has solo releases from 12k, and/OAR and
Anticipate, She has collaborated with a wide range of musicians such as
