Here We Are: Webcasting (1999)


In January 1999 Station Rose’ s next level of netart — having started in 1992 — was initiated at the Berlin exhibition crossLinks — with Webcasting/STReaming. Now playing in realtime, STReaming had become possible. More than 90 STR live-webcasts  happened in only one year. The studio, live@home, had become the place for the performance, for the STReam. Parallel to webcasting, STR was still performing live at festivals, art spaces and clubs, promoting the CD-release of Playing Now. One of the highlights of this European tour was the performance at Le Batofar in Paris. This period also saw the start of a series of vinyl audio-releases recorded live during the Webcasts, called live@home.

Elisa Rose: Sure the artist comes first. This is our profession. To be an organiser was always a strategy to survive in the electronic jungle.
