Subject:       Art Dirt - performance interface

Hi everyone,
The Port-MIT exhibition opened on Friday in Boston with remote Cu See Me
interfaces by Ebon Fisher in New York and G.H. Hovagimyan in Aix-En-
Provence, France. We know the interface works and it looks good. We have
the capability to do remote audio streaming to Boston. This means you
can pipe live or recorded sound with a Real Audio encoder. For info on
set-up e-mail 
<> the Cu See Me reflector address at MIT for the Art
Dirt is you can open a window and strem your video in that
manner. Don't use color it will crash the machines. set the CODEC to Cu
See Me Gray.  We do have good audi with the Cu See Me. There are speaker
with amps hooked to each computer. The simplest audio feed is into your
computer through the Cu See Me audio feed. It is important to use the
lower band widths when streaming. You know 11mhz and mono. If you don't
you will most like crash your computer and the server at MIT. Open up a
chat window when you first connect and see if you can interface with the
tech person at MIT before you do anything fancy.  I am enclosing the
schedule again for you to look at.
Love & Friendship to all,

stream. This should be done at 2pm.
Screen B - - scroll done to bottom of
page so that chat window fills the screen- test the chat window with MIT 
Screen C - CU See Me session set up so that windows tile or if you like
pick them up and move around or have audience interface. Maybe this is
the reflector.

Screen D - local video full screen color and a window on the Cu See Me

 Before that Art Dirt will phone you to set up the interface with Cu See
Me. phone call set up should take place 1 hour to 1/2 hour before show.
During show Remo at MIT or technician should phone Art Dirt to allow for
MIT audience interface and to keep a running commentary of what's
happening. If possible local MIT video camera should be manipulated to
give remote participants a view of the Exhibition space.  At MIT any
Boston artists who want to do performances using the Chat, Phone, and
video interfaces art to be encouraged. There are three open time slots
for performances the 27 minute slot 1:18 to 1:45 or 1:48 to 1:57 which
