A group of talented young people from Tottenham in North London have been preparing media files that explore and depict life in their local neighbourhood. Their mix has been prepared with the support of two artists, Graziano Milano and Michael Szpakowski and will be projected live during the launch of the new Bruce Grove Media Centre, London N17.
Furthernoise.org has teamed up with The Basement Studio, Bristol and The Point youth centre in the New York Bronx to run a series of workshops in realtime internet audio visual mixing. Over 4 weekends 10 young people aged 16 - 20 in both cities are meeting through a web site interface called VisitorsStudio and working together in groups to develop an audio visual performance or DJ/VJ mix that will be simultaneously screened live to audiences in both cities. The workshops are being held at the Basement Studio, Bristol on Saturdays 10th, 17th, 24th of February & 3rd of March from 2 - 6.30 pm and the final mixes will be screened at Watershed Media Centre on Wednesday 21st March.
"VS creates a Beuysian mediaspace or channel for the (relative) masses in which openness and access override technical specificity. Of course, with the private sector's current Web 2.0 models of audience-created intellectual property, the very openness of the VS's content model raises issues around creative freedom that are larger than this short missive. What is important is that the VS offers a readily accessible channel for collective creation and community building with minimal toolsets, and this, while not unheard of, is a highly valuable asset in the New Media world."
