Artistic performance is area taking advantage of the accessibility of managed networks. Musicians in particular are using low-latency networks for telematic performances, in which players at several geographically separated locations play together synchronously, with audiences at each node. Musicians have famously low tolerance for delay, and these performances are excellent test cases for networks and networking technologies.

I try to think when I am developing the technologies in a stylisticly agnostic manner so I am not thinking that this is something it will be used for jazz or calssical or avant-garde or electronica or whatever it happens to be, but rather than I am developing the tools and meanings of performance that can be applied to any one of those areas.

Dancers, actors, and visual artists also participate in these events. Several different techniques for managing delay will be presented, along with video examples. These telematic performances bring together artists in novel ways, and create new environments that challenge previously accepted ideas of mediated space, interactivity, and audience perspective, while investigating the semiotics of remote collaboration in ways that could influence future generations of networked appliances.
