Peter and I have been talking about running CDM-curated streaming events for a while, as a way for us to bring together artists from the incredible communities which have coalesced in this little corner of the web. A series of innocent discussions with Jean Poole last time I was in Melbourne seems to have been turned into somewhat of a juggernaut: Net-Lag.

Tomorrow, Thursday October 9th from 8PM-1AM (Australian Eastern time), as part of the Melbourne Digital Fringe, Melbourne’s fantastic Horse Bazaar projection bar will play virtual host to a globe-spanning lineup of artists in the inaugural Net Lag: Vapour Trails.

Net-Lag Vapour Trails

For the majority of people not able to physically attend the Horse Bazaar, the event will feature AV performances streaming from Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Tokyo and New York, brought together live in the Net-Lag channel at web broadcasting service Mogulus.

Curated by Melbourne visual stalwarts Jean Poole and dpwolf, and organized by the Plug N Play Melbourne and Share Outpost crews, the embeddable, chat-enabled Mogulus/NetLag widget will be seeing:

Visionary visualist label LightRhythmVisuals streaming from Tokyo, featuring tracks from their forthcoming albums Notations02 and Koob’s
CDM’s Peter Kirn dropping a breakfast AV set at 9AM New York time (1AM AEST)
I’ll have collaborators Segue in the studio with a brace of cameras and the Vixid for live progressive tech and surveillance state video madness.
… and plenty more: Lineup details at the NetLag site.
