Earshot, playing the sounds of the network.

Earshot was one of the first projects related to the composition of sound through the network, providing the opportunity to tap into the immense amount of files present in the countless servers around the globe. Available for Mac and PC, the sequencer is composed of a position-sensitive window of samples and the so-called 'audio spike' where the default sounds are supplied with the program. Just specify a correct url to start downloading samples from the network, adding that changes in the composition by moving items that rappresentaizoni the samples themselves. In this way, the composition becomes a live performance that draws in real time to remote servers, like a DJ does with its houses of discs, formulating a cross-section of part of the immense instantaneous and elusive soundscape imaginable moving in the myriad of cables connecting internet.
