Ohno Lab AEC
HEAR: Net Sound(DEMO) HEAR: Live Net Sound

The most significant aspect of the Internet
Is its being alive
Isn't it?
What would it sound like if we listened to it?


After creating the beta version in 1996, Net Sound members agreed they wanted to listen to a greater variety of Net sounds not only those of Ohno Research Lab. Anybody who wants to make sounds over the Net, please let us know--and increase our links via Net Sound "CENTRAL."


Note: Ars Electronica Center is a media art museum in Linz, Austria, where in addition to 40 staff members working via the Net, visitors (half of whom are children) use Web terminals located throughout the museum. Approximately 300,000 people a month also access AEC's Web server from countries around the world--this is the sound source. By network terms, Austria and Japan are distant (20-25 hops) and packet loss is extensive, which at times prevents the sound from being heard.
