RoomCassiopeia I

During the one and a half year long ethnological research for her thesis, Antina Michels has interviewed netlabel heads, producers and other people involved in the netaudio scene. In the course of the interviews she applied the method of mental mapping. She then used the mental maps of her interview partners to create a ‘net map’. In the presentation she will illustrate how netaudio networks from Berlin and London got connected on & offline and will examine the essential role of the offline meetings with netaudio festivals in particular.
