INFOCRASH:    SAT 21:00 – 23:00 // Main Stage

With William Nurdin, Eva Ursprung,  Emmanuelle Gibello, Julien Ottavi, Shoï Extrasystole, Kadet Kühne, Carl Stone. [remote live streams] and Jenny Pickett, Romain Papion [live on set].

An international online orchestra developed by APO33 whose goal is to create a place for networked performance. “Great International Audio Streaming Orchestra” uses a bidirectional multiplex platform to perform and mix different audio sources via streaming. Over the time of the performance, streams (web-transmission) are re-made in the ‘local’ space using a system based on mixing multiple audio-streams through a spatial diffusion. GIASO creates a distributed orchestra, where musicians and composers can become virtual entities that emerge from a global community of nodes – audio explorers and performers’ networks.

Project GIASO is supported by the DICAM – DRAC Pays de la Loire et “Aide à la création”, Conseil Général de Loire-Atlantique, 2013.
