Hub Renga

Here is the first of several old HUB pieces that I am going to podcast. HubRenga is from the 2nd Hub CD which is still available from CDEmusic. In a 1999 article for electronic musician, Tim Perkis, described it this way.

"HubRenga was a live radio performance, in collaboration with the Well, a computer bulletin board and messaging system. The Hub was connected to The Well through a dialup line in the studios of KPFA radio in Berkeley. The public could dial up the Well from their home and type in lines of poetry which would be read aloud on the air; this stream of text also was fed directly into the Hub computers, which were programmed to respond to certain "power words" in the text with musical actions of each composer's choosing. In the weeks leading up to the performance The Well poetry community had collectively compiled this list of power words. "

First Podcast at 30,000?

I just made this short recording with my laptop while flying on Lufthansa flight 434 from Munich to Chicago. The entire post was done from seat 37 F. So I am wondering if this is the first podcast at 30,000 ft. We are over the coast of Labador. I tested the webcam and it seemed to work fine. I think we can do one up on Stockhausen's ridiculous helicopter piece with our on ridiculous inflight piece ;-)

Returning from the ICMC in Barcelona, which was hectic, and a fantastic visit with Jean-Marc Montera, Patrick Laffont, Michelle Ricozzi and many of our other collaborators at the Impass Montevideo in Marseilles.

Well this is expensive so I will get off. It is all cloud cover now or I would insert a picture as well
