end of "Best of Webcasting" series at hr/ARD Digital // Staedelschule Frankfurt guestlecture // M12 Berlin // Paraflows Vienna // MySpace // online releases: :// on Demand, Playing Now, Live@Home // :// on Demand bookrelease
Due to peculiar new aesthetic and cultural politics at hr-fernsehen, Station Rose’s TV series "Best of Webcasting" was cancelled (the person in charge still owes STR an intellectually convincing explanation). It can be said that this series had been one of the rare regular art TV programs, antedating a style made popular by Myspace, YouTube, Facebook, etc., by merging performance, moderation, documentation, and interviews into a contemporary format.
This gave the artists a lot more time to concentrate on other activities and projects like lecturing, performing, and producing their new book ://on Demand.STR started releasing music online on their Gunafa label, available on iTunes & spotify, and started planning the project "20 Digital Years".
