On Monday September 5th I took part in Netrooms performed at The University of Nottingham Ningo, China campus.
Netrooms: The Long Feedback is a participative network piece which invites the public to contribute to an extended feedback loop and delay line across the internet. The work explores the juxtaposition of multiple spaces as the acoustic, the social and the personal environment becomes permanently networked. The performance consists of live manipulation of multiple real-time streams from different locations which receive a common sound source. Netrooms celebrates the private acoustic environment as defined by the space between one audio input (microphone) and output (loudspeaker). The performance of the piece consists of live mixing a feedback loop with the signals from each stream.
I set up a speaker and microphone in the Great Hall of the Carnegie Mellon College of Fine Arts building. The performance ran from 18:30-19:00 GMT+8 (6:30-7:00 EST).
