Turbulence MUST raise $25,000 by December 31, 2007.
I’ve been reading and learning from Turbluence for the past 5 years. They not only publish but also organize events and support artists (see the past comissions). Turbulence is unique in their effort and a great motivation for networked arts. We owe them a lot. No need to say, supporting experimental art practice has no monetary return in the “free market economy”. So please support Turbulence if you:
- are one of the thousands of people who regularly visit Turbulence, Networked Performance, Networked Music Review and / or New American Radio ;
- are one of the hundreds of teachers who use Turbulence works in your new media / digital art courses;
- are an artist who has received a Turbulence, Networked Music Review or New American Radio commission;
- have presented at or attended Upgrade! Boston (Art Interactive or Massachusetts College of Art and Design), Floating Points (Emerson College), or Programmable Media (Pace Digital Gallery) … now is the time to give something back…
You don’t know us but you support experimental practice in the arts… Please PLEDGE NOW!
WHAT TURBULENCE ACCOMPLISHED IN 2007
In addition to an exceptional year of supporting artists through commissions, public events, and our world-renowned resource, Networked Performance, we started a second blog called Networked Music Review (NMR). On it you will find in-depth interviews with sonic artists and musicians; world-wide events highlighted in real time; a “Weekly” post spotlighting interesting works, artists and conversations; a monthly newsletter which summarizes each month’s activities; and much more.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT IN 2008
On November 15, NMR began launching fifteen commissioned works, several of which will premiere live at Programmable Media II: Networked Music, a 2-day symposium at Pace University, New York City in April 2008.
In addition to launching 20 commissioned works, other upcoming highlights include Mixed Realities, an exhibition and symposium at Emerson College, winter 2008; and Re(Connecting) the Adamses, a major exhibition co-presented with Greylock Arts (Adams, Massachusetts) and MCLA Gallery 51 (North Adams, Massachusetts), summer 2008.
