Æther9, an experiment in collaborative realtime storytelling is
gathering souls in a dramatically online fashion.

BERLIN will host a physical reunion, a séance, workshop, conspiracy,
residency, and eventually a performance.

During their one-week residency at _____-micro research [berlin], the
networked Æther9 members will meet in physical space for the first
time to redefine the evolution of the project, develop technical
applications, and re-experiment with new ideas which will explore the
scenographic potential of the medium. The foundations being
distributed authorship, cross-platform, and 'remote’ performance of
streaming audio and visual material to a nomadic HTML interface. This
event of live performances and video streams from vast locations will
take you to ‘the unexpected’ - a hyperdrive through space and

At the heart of the Æther9 project is the desire to fulfill the "old"
utopian dream of borderless communication. No frontiers. Developed by
an online networked group of international visual artists/collectives
working through Oceania, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and into the
Americas, Æther9 is a matrix for video/audio performance, and
collaborative hybrids of post-dramatic processes particular to these
new modes of digital communication. Using both “new“ and “low-tech“
technologies within multi-disciplinary art practices, Æther9 aims to
break the boundaries of spatial and cultural distances to democratize
the artistic voice within communication technology. The term of
“reality-jamming” catches the effect generated through this wildly
dispersed yet intimate collaboration of live sounds and images whose
fragmented glimpses of individual philosophical positions and
immediate surroundings transition across the global network in one
cross-planetary embrace.
