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?

PART I: Radio to Internet

The first event in the Supply/Demand disentagles our current “media convergence” by focusing on radio as one form of mass communication which has been transformed by the internet. This panel focuses on the period of time between 1999 and 2004, when a number of pirate and community broadcasters were making their first internet radio broadcasts,and the beginning of Pandora and podcasting. We will travel back in time to look at the utopian radio practices that produced the first models of “hyrbid-radio” that transmits both through the internet and the airwaves. What were artists working in community radio, pirate radio and internet radio anticipating for the future at that time? What do they think of hybrid radio as it has come to pass? And what opportunities do they see on the horizon for audio art and transmission art in the age of media convergence?

Panel organized and moderated by Alexis Bhaghat, Co-founder and director of ((audience)). Highlighted participants include Jonathan Jay (Studio X) and Jon Anderson (Director of Broadcast Journalism, Department of Television and Radio, CUNY). Curated listening: Jason Candler, August Sound Coalition and Cascadia Free Radio.

Sponsors of the Supply/ Demand panel series are Harvestworks Digital Media Lab Center and Free103.9. *Panels will be broadcast on both Harvestworks website (http://www.harvestworks.org/) and Free103.9 web radio (http://free103point9.org/).

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Focus for this panel surrounds cable access and lo fi broadcast networks. Topical issues surround a suffocated media outlet and methods of survival, identifying the audience and public involvement, access and distribution. What platforms exist for these networks to tap into (ie On Demand)? How do artists’ work follow the serialized nature of television programming in an online platform?

COMING UP!
Part III Mobile Technologies
TBA

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.
