Weblogmusic: A Performance Platform for Ensembles of Individually Time-Shifted Improvisers Conference Paper uri icon


  • Weblogmusic is a web-based venue for time-shifted improvising ensembles. By embracing the asynchronously created, glitch-prone nature of internet fora, the project allows each performance to be unique in the viewers browser, with unpredictable network latency disrupting cause and effect in ensemble interactions. The project brings focus to extramusical elements including presence, authenticity, and causality as well as the non-transparent effects of mediatization, allowing the audience to reflect on the unique properties of live performance and the unique properties that emerge from mediated performance.
