Music: the computer network as avant art

A joint project of the very hip San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Goethe-Institut NY, ZKM (Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe), and Minneapolis' Walker Art Center, this great-looking site presents the computer network as an experimental medium: as a musical instrument and as tool that enables musicians and music lovers to collaborate. Elements include commissioned “media essays,” ranging from hyperlinked texts to designed interfaces, and live events both in physical space and online, including The Architecture of Sound, Early Network Music Bands in the San Francisco Bay Area, Ten Hours of Sounds from Japan, and Radio Free Linux. <>
