An international online orchestra developed by APO33, “Great International Audio Streaming Orchestra” uses a bidirectional multiplex platform to perform and mix different audio sources via streaming. Streams (web-transmission) are re-made in the ‘local’ space using a system based on mixing multiple audio-streams through a spatial diffusion. GIASO creates a distributed orchestra, where musicians and composers can become virtual entities that emerge from a global community of nodes – audio explorers and performers’ networks. With Cdrik Croll, Jenny Pickett, Kadet Kuhne, Romain Papion, Ryo Ikeshiro, Shoï Extrasystole, William Nurdin, Emmanuelle Gibello, Eva Ursprung, Philippe Cavaleri, Julien Ottavi, Shelly Knotts, Joachim Montessuis, Erin Sexton, Brice Jeannin, Elpueblodelchina, Seamus O’Donnell.
