Music

Kraftwerk MIDI files

A site where some recent tracks from Kraftwerk are available in MIDI forrmat. As the group have not released an album since 1986 this is one of the few places (apart from live performances) to hear their later music. Also shows that MIDI is not just a poor way of creating small files.

Crossfade

CROSSFADE focuses on sound as artistic medium. The purpose of this ongoing project is to contextualize and facilitate access to a diversity of sonic and musical directions, which utilize network technology as an integral part of their production. A curated space, CROSSFADE spans different aesthetic points of departure and integrates visual works with sonic constituents. New approaches towards the specific properties and artistic potential of networks as time-based technology will be at the heart of CROSSFADE, which aims at becoming a meeting-point for artists as well as audiences whose paths rarely cross, be it locally or globally, aestethically or sociologically. CROSSFADE is a joint project of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Goethe-Institut, ZKM (Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe) and the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis).

Geocaching - a new high tech sport

"Geocaching is an entertaining adventure game for gps users. Participating in a cache hunt is a good way to take advantage of the wonderful features and capability of a gps unit. The basic idea is to have individuals and organizations set up caches all over the world and share the locations of these caches on the internet. GPS users can then use the location coordinates to find the caches.", says the FAQ. A sort of deferred time orienteering.

Museum of Computer Art

MOCA was established in 1994 by computer artists Don Archer and Bob Dodson to promote computer art in its various forms and manifestations, including 3-D rendered art, fractals, enhanced photography, animation, mixed media, computer-painted and -drawn art, etc. Many talented artists have given us access to their work, and what you see in our archives and current exhibit is some of the best work that we have solicited. Some of it may be of technical or historical interest, some of it may be innovative and unusual, and some of it may have potential (dare we say it) as high art.

ctheory multimedia

Don't weep nostalgic for the narrative tradition of Western music, for its opera, chants, and symphonies: they've never had it so good. If Mozart were alive today, he would be hard-wired to an Akai S-6000, and would be the first to describe himself as an android processor. Image vectors entrap us, entrance us, and disappear us in an electronic labyrinth of the red sky night. True interzone bodies, electronic artists are explorers of a new territory: living at the edge of two species types --human and android-- floating in a folded space of anamorphic perspective and alien eyes and algorithmic skin. Test riders in the virtual vortex. (it says).

Parole

Steve Dietz (Director, New Media Initiatives, Walker Art Center) writes: "The database is the plumbing of interface, and many artists are working with its structures to transform what Hal Foster has referred to as “a repository of the given” into compelling experiences that may even approach knowledge with a point of view, if not wisdom."

Garden of Perfect Brightness

Yuan Ming Yuan - History's most magnificent garden, the great Yuan Ming Yuan (Garden of Perfect Brightness), was tragically burned in 1860. Built by six generations of Qing emperors, the garden spanned a three-hundred-fifty hectare area with a fairyland of hills, ponds, lakes, ancient trees and palaces filled with one and half centuries of imperial treasure collecting. Through the immense magic of high quality computer graphics and multimedia technology, the world can once again journey to the garden - to learn, to meditate, to explore, to enjoy.

Museum of e-failure - Ghost sites

"This exhibit - The Museum of E-Failure - is an attempt to actively preserve the home pages of sites that will probably disappear in the next few months.", we wrote in 2001. Here, - in the wrecked pixels of their last images - are written the cryptic stories of this strange tribe of people: the Digital Generation; those who built the Web and struggled to mold it in their own image. They came, coded, designed logos, did IPOs, and moved on. Many, perhaps most, are now unemployed ...

BMW open film site

BMW, the car makers, created a web site in 2001 with four new short (about 6 mins.) films from famous directors that feature BMW cars.

This was one of the first examples of a major manufacturer setting up a brand web site that is designed to pull surfers in through pure content value rather than cataloging. The company has now launched a new series of films (October 2002) with 'Hostage' directed by John Woo and starring Clive Owen. The films and info on their web site. 24/10/02
