"AmbientTV is a crucible for independent, interdisciplinary practice ranging from installation and performance, through documentary, dance, and gastronomy, to sound and video composition and real-time manipulation. We continue to develop social and technical infrastructure and promote network architectures that facilitate alternatives to current socio-political and economic formations. Techniques and effects of live data broadcasting and transmission provide theme, medium, and performative space for many of the works.
Our sound works emerge from dialogues between music and noise, rule-bound forms and chance, and technology and tradition; they find realization as film scores, sound installations, collaborations with contemporary dancers and choreographers, pieces for unusual orchestras, jams over the net, and radio works. Occasionally we have also welcomed musicians-in-residence, including Akha songwriter Aju Jupoh and Austrian electro-whiz Kertal."
