This orchestra is an online project using live real-time audio transmissions via the internet to create original compositions where the musicians are spread around the globe. GIASO is a project that creates new relations and aesthetic in music by using the network as its main tool for the transmission and arrangement of the varying oeuvres of participating musicians. The orchestra becomes at once virtual and physical. The ensemble is recomposed within a space. The concert’s social relation takes place in another dimension, where musicians and audience gather together through the live broadcasts and via a chat system where people exchange about what is happening in the music or how to change the dynamic, the volume, the timbre or anything related to the music.
An online cross-border orchestra developed by APO33 for the purpose of creating networked performance spaces. The Great international Audio Streaming Orchestra uses Icestream to perform and mix different audio streams. GIASO performs with new experiments in orchestral composition where the composer becomes a virtual entity that emerges from a community of audio explorers/nodes.
Performers include: Amble Skuse, Jenny Pickett, Shelly Knotts, Keiko Uenishi, Robin Plastre, Julien Ottavi
