The Theater at MAD
For their three part series of panel discussions accompanied by related performances and demonstrations, Supply / Demand, E.S.P. TV collaborates with ((audience)) and Harvestworks Digital Media Lab Center to gather practitioners from art and industry to discuss the metamorphosis of Audio Visual Media in general and the opportunities of on-demand distribution.
While the film and music industries are constantly discussing the opportunities of new technologies, Supply/Demand aims to focus on the needs and the experiences of independent and experimental electronic artists. Bringing together scholars, media aggregators and distributors, and artists (musicians and composers, film makers, video artists, sound artists) Supply / Demand asks: How can artists make use of new channels of distribution? How can artists contribute to emerging protocols of distribution?
This panel is the culmination of a 3 part series. For many, the mobile phone is our main interface with all forms of media. Of note will be artists exploring mobile technology as as medium (creative hacking, subversive use of cel phones, etc). We will also explore the current obstacles facing an artist working with mobile technology such as intellectual property, technical issues. A balance of artists and programmers will be present as the emphasis centers on artistic practice over marketplace.
*Panels will be broadcast on both Harvestworks website (http://www.harvestworks.org/) and Free103.9 web radio (http://free103point9.org/).
