Network jamming : distributed performance using generative music
Brown, Andrew R. (2010) Network jamming : distributed performance using generative music. In Proceedings of the New Instruments for Musical Expression Conference 2010, University of Technology Sydney, University of Technology Sydney, Sydney, pp. 283-286.
Generative music systems can be performed by manipulating the values of their algorithmic parameters, and their semi-autonomous nature provides an opportunity for coordinated interaction amongst a network of systems, a practice we call Network Jamming. This paper outlines the characteristics of this networked performance practice and discusses the types of mediated musical relationships and ensemble configurations that can arise. We have developed and tested the jam2jam network jamming software over recent years. We describe this system, draw from our experiences with it, and use it to illustrate some characteristics of Network Jamming.
