Björn Eriksson and Plac.Art.X @ xxXtenxion

Björn arrived on monday, after having had some exciting days in Berlin. There he presented a festival night for Das kleine Fieldrecording Festival which was a huge success and made with so much love. Some parts of the festival even took place in Second Life at the Odyssey Sounddeck, beautifully build by Chi5.

Björn aka miulew is our artist-in-residence and we are not only extremely happy about it, but as well a bit proud that we could manage such an important part of the festival from the budget. We think artists-in-residence is 1 of the most needed functions in the future art world.

Now after almost a week of working together (really fun) and preparing the placard we are already in the middle of everything. Its so amazing sounds from many parts of the world - all these netpoints - and we are amazed about the many levels the Plac.Art.X is happening in.

curated by Björn Eriksson

First of all its the headphones feed here in the gallery, the projection of the sound from the webstream into the ears of the listeners. The room slowly fills and everybody is happy - thats good.

Next level: the placard, where artists meet with miulew and Pomodoro Bolzano and the original founders of placard. Yeah - the first placard was 6 people, eeek told us. Actually its great fun to join the chat, all this back and frontpage conversations and delighted listeners. And now Helmar even got the webcam-stream going :-)

Another level just about to be started now is the Second Life simulation. J0ri hung up some headphones for the avatars and the stream is up... Press this SLurl Link to get tovirtual Leerer Beutel in Second Life:

greetings around from
all the pomidori and björn and helmar and kristina and more
