Addicted 2 Random (2011 - 2013)
Addicted2Random will produce computer generated music in a participatory, location-independent way bridging past and presence of European musical heritage. The project will raise awareness for the share- and remix culture which led to cultural diversity and shaped a distinguished European culture with far reaching roots. E.g. the project will mix J.S. Bach (1685-1750) with contemporary computer generated forms of music.
The project will explore new forms of GUIs (graphical user interfaces) for the production of computer generated music. The GUI will be used by online participants to experiment with mixing of sound & visuals. People are encouraged to play.
Volunteers are a crucial factor for many activities of NPOs. The project will build on the participation of volunteers in many ways. The Open Source programming process will be mainly formed by people interested in setting up the GUI and the overall project. Thus the project fits well into the usual activities of community radio station. They rely on the active participation of volunteers broadcasting local, national and European issues. The project will provide these volunteers with an online playground for active cross-boarder participation and co-operation.
