about

Ixotica is a type of recorded music that is created solely through using the world wide web as a sound library and websites as instruments. Ixotica originated from the Soundwwwalk technique i learnt from Jamie Allen and Bernhard Garnicnig at the Net-acoustics workshop at STEIM in Amsterdam

Soundwwwalking is a genre of browser-based performances, compositions and scores that are accessible to anyone with an internet connection and browsing device. Using multitab mixing you create a sonic jouney through the wealth of archives of dynamic media, plugins and uploaded music and video available on the web.

These series of album's were made by trawling youtube and other sites that have sound embedded into them, looking for choice sources, interested not only by the sound but the sound patina and networked genealogies.

For more information visit www.soundwwwalk.net

----------------------------------------------------------------

note : The recordings compiled here are unedited and untreated and are performed live. Unlike soundwwwalking scores, the sources used in IXOTICA works are purposelessly undocumented, All the the track titles are taken from from you tube comments and this may or may not hint at what your listening to.

note : It's correct to say that the tracks on IXOTICA are not improvised, yet not scored. The occasional glitch and buffer problem/hault occurs but i see these as part of the charm of the format. vinyl's crackle, tape's hiss and the internet stutters
