Special Event: From the Ether: A Distributed Performance Concert and Panel Discussion

Tom Beyer, New York University - New York, NY, USA
Michael Palumbo, York University - Toronto, Ontario
Tim Shuttleworth, Renkus Heinz - Oceanside, CA, USA

A special joint presentation by members of the AES Technical Committee on Network Audio Standards, in the Frederick Loewe Theater, at the Music and Performing Arts Professions Department’s Music Technology Program at New York University, and the Distributed Performance and Sensorial Immersion Lab at York University, Toronto. “From The Ether” is an international concert with performers located in New York, Toronto, Montreal, Stanford, CA; Tromsø, Norway; Buenos Aries, Argentina and Belfast, Ireland. Audio and video will be transmitted between all locations over high-bandwidth internet links. The AES audience in New York will hear the performers from all locations, and be treated to a multiple-screen projection of the concert: an audiovisual unification of spectators and performers. At each remote location, all global musicians’ contributions will be mixed locally together — each location will experience a complete orchestra.

In order to inform the audience as to how the underlying technology is being utilized, how they can use it, and how it serves the music, the producers have arranged for brief talks to precede the performances, each addressing a particular aspect of distributed performance, including: compositional considerations, equipment, techniques, and production affordances and constraints.

Location: Frederick Loewe Theater
