It's worth noting the Belgian audio pottery hoax in this context for the brilliant way it wove together of a half-dozen strands of techno-cultural fascination around the fetish of lost immediacy:

The YouTube algorithm gave me a TED talk by Eric Whitacre  sharing his work conducting 'virtual choirs' where people recorded their parts separately and uploaded them to YouTube. The individual performances were then rendered together to create the final 'performance'. The project is on-going . I thought this was a nice example of a work of a traditional medium being transformed through network technology. Particularly the asynchronous nature of the process is very different from how a physically co-located choir would operate, and the result is not a conventional performance but a recording (hence my previous quote marks). I'd like to see a live performance by such a physically distributed choir using low-latency technology.
