From the Ethernet Orchestra website:
“Diaspora” is the debut album from the Ethernet Orchestra, an Internet based music ensemble founded by Roger Mills that explores the performance of intercultural tele-improvisation. It is a compilation of live freely improvised vignettes from performances recorded between 2009-2014. It features musicians from a diverse range of cultures and musical traditions performing simultaneously between Iran and Australia via North America, Canada, Brazil and Europe.
During this period we also had the great fortune to collaborate with the late Richard Lainhart, who is featured on many of the recordings. Ethernet Orchestra would like to dedicate this album to Richard, whose passion and generosity touched us all and his music continues his presence in our lives. Thanks also goes to Richards wife, Caroline Meyers for the sleeve design.
The album is free to download from the netalbel Pueblo Nuevo.
Ethernet Orchestra have also collaborated with networked VJs Helen Varley Jamieson, Neil Jenkins, Graziano Milano and Michael Szpakowski who have mixed live cinematic visual collages to a number of our performances in the networked A/V platform VisitorsStudio. These can be viewed here.
