- -> ACOUSTIC.SPACE is an exploration into the acoustic dimension of electronic 
technology and networked media environment, featuring a series of magazines

radiotelescope in Latvia: from history of this top-secret Soviet era 
military object, including precise technical data, about it's conversion to 
scinitific and civilian use, and to the international "Acoustic.Space.Lab" 
symposium on sound art, radio and satellite technology, which took place in 
August 2001, with participation of more then 30 artists, radio amateurs and

Subject: Stiglitz interview up

I've just posted my interview with Joseph Stiglitz, which ran on my 
radio show yesterday evening. Follow the link from 


- ----

August 15, 2002 DH on economic news - Fed holds fire, manufacturing 
sags * Joseph Stiglitz, co-winner 2001 Nobel Prize in economics; 
professor of economics, Columbia University; former chief economist, 
World Bank; author, Globalization and Its Discontents, on the U.S. 
economy, the effects of the stock market scandals, and how the IMF 
really works. In this interview, Stiglitz, who'd previously called 
for the reform of the IMF, says he's changing his mind, and it might 
well be time to scrap it and start all over.

RADIO RE:COMBO: re:combining the territory

October, 2002. The *Re:combo Radio* will recombine the territory of 
"Transmidia" project.

You are invited to _Re:combining The Territory_, a multimedia project of 
collaborative sound + vision production. The experience will mix 
audiovisual material sent by collaborators to RE:COMBO 
( with texts produced for the event and a live P.A. set.

The main goal is to integrate the audience (live on-site and wired by the 
web) in an active experience of "on-stage" recombination. We believe that 
the traditional passive "on-stage" format doesn't fit the new ways of 
electronic music/art. The experience will be developed this way: the sounds 
and pictures that will be used in the performance will be collected through 
the internet. You can collaborate by just sending your movie clips, images 
or sound files attached by e-mail to:

The last edition of the _radio Re:combo_ took place on the "Abril Pro Rock 
Festival" (

Questions relevant to the territory (as defined by Gilles Deleuze) will be 
raised with images and sounds and offered to the public with a one night 
stand performance. After that, during two months, the off-line physical 
site will be open for people to recombine and be the players of a wired 
show synchronized with the web site.

The live on-site experience will be held on October, 2002 at Instituto 
Cultural Itau, Sao Paulo, BRAZIL, during the "Transmidia" event.

Subject: open_digi > AROUND US > post BRADYS

Hi nettime-l people,

with eviction of its residents on August 5th, BRADYS of Brixton is over as
venue of open_digi in South London for foreseeable future

small mov at

but we can say we did the old building justice at its 'LAST STAND' with a
diverse night lasting till dawn of digital sounds and visuals plus
presentations. The main space even had new coat of paint (just dry) +
three large projections.

evening kicked off (slightly late but its getting better) with a stomping
run through of the activities of from its editor
Mike Slocombe followed by insights into the work of
from Florian Schmitt. After some recalcitrant behaviour from a particular
computer we then got into a great session of sounds mostly chosen by toxi
of with visuals from toxi, elout of from Amsterdam and myself. Finally at 7.30am
last of audience were persuaded that they should let us pull the plugs ...

thanks to all who attended and all who contributed and for sure made us
feel like we had put our time at BRADYS to best use

if any body has any record of August 2nd > "AROUND US", images or
whatever, could they please pass them to us as all cameras etc examined so
far malfunctioned one way or another

SO now we are busy checking out possible new homes for open_digi,
hopefully remaining in South London, ways to pay for people to visit us
etc. We have the interest for some great programmification for winter,
"bcn error special" where errorclub of barcelona will pay us a visit with
work including sutoolz, and something
that will be part edible from Montpellier, France,, a night of from across the
river + much more. Any help and suggestions welcome

applications are invited for post of MC for future editions of open_digi

meantime we can suggest you can keep yourselves entertained online by
checking out ongoing digital thrashes in the rounds of series
> champions of the WWW > >
next up I think is v On September 13th at Cyberlounge
of Museo Tamayo, Mexcio City will also be some talks and discussion
(non-virtually) on subject of net-art spaces (including story of, net-art99>01 and open_digi so far).
