Laptop Musical Jam   ]

Electronic artists are spending their Sunday afternoons amid the mod surroundings of OpenAir Cafe in New York's East Village for a media jam known as Share. Nearing its one-year anniversary the Share event allows laptop musicians and video artists to plug into a mixer or log on wirelessly and collaborate on freeform music and video collage pieces. With the house sound system run through Steinberg's Nuendo Surround Sound mixing software different jams can be moved about the three rooms of the cafe. Video artists have the use of a matrix of video screens as well as a main screen of translucent plastic and falling water. Upcoming projects for Share include expanding the range of its wireless hub for new jamming capabilities in nearby Tompkins Square Park and creating software for people to take part online.
