Description

SonicCity is the crystallization of several ideas about net.art and web art i've had flitting about in my head for a while. It's an anonymous interface floating over a cityscape; the interface provides access via its buttons to a sonic experience, a poetry-and-music performance that the user puts together via rollovers. For me, SonicCity meshes the concepts of both interface and database|||||it is, after all, simply an interface to a database of media||||||"narrative" (or coherenence, as the kids at the school would say) is added by the aesthetics of the performance...
