Ethernet Orchestra


We are continuing our series of online collaborations, this time initiated by Sydney based musician and composer Roger Mills.
The Ethernet Orchestra is the research project of Roger Mills at the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, University of Technology Sydney, exploring ‘methodologies and ethnographies of cross cultural improvisation, user experience and computer mediated collaboration as well as the musical and sonic boundaries of divergent cultures in collision’.
For this new collaboration we all use the eJamming software, which allows jamming together with only 150 ms of delay. This is a great improvement compared with our earlier collaborations.
There will be two concerts in June, bringing together several musicians on two /three different continents.
