NVA Virtual World Orchestra

By Gavin, 6th April 1997

Webcaster of and contributor to NVA‘s amazing Virtual World Orchestra

This was the first significant live event webcast for me (setting aside Virgin Radio, the V97 Festival and a bunch of nice but small things) with over 170 countries contributing to a massive “collaborative” event in the Glasgow Fruitmarket. Participants had their blood samples taken and projected on entry, Stelarc was in situ – having his muscles involuntarily stimulated by processed random images found online, and I was providing some sounds and webcasting the lot…. at a whopping 20Kbps in RealAudio v2.

We had a good few thousand listeners and they all got a real buzz from it from what they told me.
