January 29, 2009 – The Canadian Ensemble Noiseborder performed at the University of Windsor. Connected via audio and video live streaming, Martin Slawig played with them – from the blackhole-factory studio in Braunschweig, Germany. The sound of the acoustic instruments was streamed to Braunschweig, Martin transformed it by a live processing software (MAX/MSP) and streamed it back into the concert hall. The musicians in Canada then played together with the incoming sounds. All of them had to deal with an 11 seconds delay.
