Airless Sound

So much has been done already around the AG and we're all just doing the same little things with it to get it to the next level. It's quite clear what it needs:

*Good quality sound
*Streaming Tools - maybe grid enabled annotation devices, or just note pads, but that work across and take full advantage of the medium
*Moving cameras
*DJ-VJing/advanced editing/processing capabilities.
*Tools to deal with latency and compression faults imaginatively.

The interesting thing is that a lot of these problems are solved technically in other video/audio transfer software available already around the web, or in people's studios. What is missing is the link between universities and artists to make things happen. What about a series of funded performances in partnership with willing institutions, in return for some publicity for their meeting rooms?

It's also a great medium for collaborative performance, of the really deep higher art kind - because it allows for intensity and over stimulation, but it's also art that can be incredibly immersive and entertaining, with just the notion that projections can happen anywhere and anything can happen in each one, which has bearing on what happens to you or where you end up next.
