Comment on PROPOSAL FOR MULTIMEDIA PLAYGROUND

rene Tue, Apr 3, 2007
Amazing to see one of my seminal inspirations pop up in your post. Way back, Poeme Electronique turned me on to electronic music, biomorphic architecture and later immersive 3D stereo motion simulation theatre design and virtual reality. Ironically, I was asked last year to help restore Corbusier's film which consisted of three separate screens, one in the center and two on the side. These two smaller ones broke up the timeline of the main film in flash backs and flash forwards of the main show on the smaller side screens. They wanted this configuration digitally replicated based on the notes they wrote at the time.

To add to the synchronicity of your post, the studio SpaceCollective operates out of is owned by a woman/artist who used to live with Karl Heinz Stockhausen and worked on several of his installations.

Also, several versions of virtual dance floors like the one you refer to were developed by SpaceCollective member Carel Struycken who no doubt has some good stuff to share when he sees what you%u2019re up to. Once the project architecture we%u2019re now working on is in place this will be a great project to promote on the site.

FYI, I have a cousin who is the head of the North Sea Jazz Festival in Holland. Maybe a good place to do some prototyping. But I really want to see an installation that features your own music. You should post some of it here.
