Ethernet Orchestra live cinema collaborations

Distant Presences
Live cinema performance on FBi Radio, Sydney 94.5 FM Sydney and A/V platform Visitors Studio.

Distant Presences was a telematic audio-visual radio performance featuring networked VJ’s in Sydney, London, and Germany mixing live cinema collages to the ensemble’s improvisations in the A/V platform VisitorsStudio. It was originally broadcast on FBI Radio, Sydney, in June 2011 as a meditation on the multifarious nature of location and being.

Ocean Between Sound – Live at Upstage Festival of Cyberformance 2012

Oceans Between Sound was a series of two audiovisual networked music performances for the UpStage Festival of Cyberformance, 2012. It featured networked visual artists Graziano Milano and Michael Szpakowski (UK) mixing live cinema visual collages to the ensemble’s improvisations. Exploring areas of intercultural tele-improvisation between world cultures, the narrative of the work considers the ebb and flow of network data as a metaphor for the world oceans separating the members of the ensemble and their geographically dispersed lives. The performances also provided source material for the album of the same name, released in 2020.

This video is the technical rehearsal and featured a stripped down ensemble performing with Graziano Milano, who was mixing live cinema collages from London.
