High Quality Audio over Networks Summit
Program dates: April 11, 2008 - April 13, 2008
The upcoming summit meeting of Audio over Networks is a second installment and focuses on music being made over distance. In 2004, we addressed technical challenges. This time it’s about all that’s happened since: the jam sessions, new compositions, classical music, and much more — the content that’s being created and performed in real time between remote locations. Summit participants are encouraged to present their recent and forthcoming projects. Intended as a forum for ideas, we hope it will produce a “read out” on the current state of the art.
The three-day meeting features panels, live demos, and open discussions. The Banff Centre’s meeting areas, high-speed network, studios, and concert hall are well-equipped to support the range of projects expected. Discussions are panel and workshop style. Anything that amplifies the theme is of interest. Inclusiveness is a goal of the organizers: hi-tech, lo-tech, video, haptics, and anything related. If it helps collect experiences on how music played interactively over the network differs, it is of interest. The proposition that these new stages lead to new forms will be explored. Attendees are encouraged to propose pieces, jam sessions, and hands-on demos.
