|Alt-X Audio No. 10|
Alt-X Audio #10 features "Please Press Play," the latest release
from Michael Hogg and Clare McGrogan, Brisbane, Australia electronic sound
artists and collaborators on lowkey + nude. "Please Press Play"
is a sensuous collaboration mixing the poetry and spoken-word talents
of McGrogan and the electronic music of Hogg, the end result being a kind
of Internet Musical Theater programmed to immerse the listener into an
aurally-transmitted temporary autonomous zone. This special Alt-X Audio
show was commissioned by the Australian Network for Art and Technology
(ANAT) in conjunction with the Alt-X Online Publishing Network and the
Australia Council. "Please Press Play" is only the latest web-project
to grow out of ANAT's "deep immersions" project which matches
up emerging Australian artists with popular art sites like Alt-X.
