The Banff Centre's High Quality Audio over Networks Summit (ANET II) on April 11-13, 2008, focused on music being made over distance. This was the second summit with this theme; in 2004, the Banff Centre addressed technical challenges. This summit was all about what's happened since: jam sessions, new compositions, classical music, and much more ' the sort of content that's being created and performed in real time between remote locations.
The three-day meeting attracted about 25 attendees and featured panels, live demos and open discussions.
The Banff Centre will be posting footage from two evening concerts that took place over the weekend on the Summit webpage.
Cybera is working with the Banff Centre and Ken Fields, a University of Calgary music professor, on innovative uses of CyberaNet for creating music over distance.
