Annie Abrahams –
I profoundly enjoyed reading the Aether9 book published late October by Greyscale Press. The book is based on the archives of aether9, a collaborative adventure exploring the danger zones of networked audio-visual live performance. (from 2007)
The whole book (it smells deliciously of printer-ink) feels very familiar and makes me for a second time regret I didn’t meet the group earlier when they were still actively performing. I do hope we will be able to hear more about the project in the next Cyposium. What would they think to be the pitfalls and possibilities of remote artistic collaboration?
So strange to me, recognizing all kind of problematics in the aether9 work that I am still researching – why did they stop?, did they stop? Are there articles, insightfull texts about the work? Where can I find scripts?
