<nettime-ann> chyphertext_performance {AT} e-poetry 2007 Paris

  EVENT:    Chyphertext Performance
  TAGS:      networked writing performance
  AUTHOR:  Bjørn Magnhildøen/noemata
  TIME:        May 23, around 22h - 23h (CEST)
  OFFLINE:  Le Cube, Paris - http://www.lesiteducube.com/
  ONLINE:    http://noemata.anart.no/cp/

This is an networked writing performance that consists of a hybrid of
human/machinated real-time writing and reading. The writing is
performed by
1) plain computer keyboard writing,
2) server-based machinated, algorithmic writing,
3) interactions from from readers online,
4) text feeds from the processes surrounding the writing (like system
monitoring, net connection monitoring, ftp logging, website hit
statistics logs, etc),
5) data transformation - the writing is transcribed into streaming
music as midi-event, and the images are transcribed as text/code and
then into music.

All this semi real-time, the lag can be some seconds from input to
output. The format of the writing is plaintext, ciphertext/code, and
hypertext. For convenience the performance is streamed over the web in
a regular browser. The piece is made especially for the e-Poetry 2007

Both these chyphertext- and plaintext performance pieces are parts of
a project called 'protocol performance' that i will be doing from
remote through 2007. Protocol performance and then Chyphertext
Performance is supported by the Norwegian Cultural Council, Art and
Digital Technology. Also thanks to Atelier Nord for hosting noemata
and the event on the server.
