I Silenzi Parlano Tra Loro was an interdependent temporary system of 16 international remote sub-projects, which used a wide range of methods and approaches to the generation, processing and presentation of data/sounds/images to form a nine-day long continuous on line - on site - on air sound installation on the occasion of the Ars Electronica festival'99
The publication documents the unusual interdependent, temporary system´. The installation had several very different on site versions in Europe and Australia and was also rendered into an 8 hour radio-installation (Austria and a 5 day non stop radio-sculpture in Weimar, Germany). More than 50 artists were involved in this project.
In the publication two CDs are included. Radia #29 is a very long excerpt of the second CD, which was composed by a generative programme using samples from short examples (approx. 4 min) sent by each node of the SOUND DRIFTING NETWORK after the live event had ended.
The generative programme used was the SOUND DRIFTER designed by Winfried Ritsch (Graz, A).
