Scrambled Bites
Scrambled Bites Avatar, Western Front (2004)

Avatar presented its Audio Birthday Card Orchestra via Internet audio streaming in 2004 for Art’s Birthday—an event hosted by Vancouver’s Western Front.

Avatar presented its Audio Birthday Card Orchestra via Internet audio streaming in 2004 for Art’s Birthday—an event hosted by Vancouver’s Western Front. For the project, Avatar created an electronic translator for Scrambled Bites, a project by Western Front in which data from sensors in multiple installations by different artists was collected and rerouted back to the installations on the Internet so all the works fed off one another.

 

Avatar’s electronic data translator was plugged into Scrambled Bites over the Internet and released musical greeting cards. An Avatar-designed instrument by the name of BéBé also performed them for its online audience, entirely by itself.
