hi all

trying to plot the autumn/winter programme for open_digi nights we have
down here in Brixton, London. After our first night at venue of BRADYS
(squatted pub actually) it looks like we have enough funds flowing to
bear cost of flying in one to three or so artists from Europe on cheapo
flights etc (and can provide them free accomodation here in London) for
each night (approximately monthly)

but I am looking for ways to make their visit to the UK more worthwhile
and entertaining for them, more 'dates' etc. Just wondering if there are
any of you 'up north' who would care to share part or all of our
programme with us.

the formula we are aiming for here roughly is some demoing with talking
to start with followed by a more 'performance' period (till dawn in our
case) so obviously the line-ups we are looking at are tailored at the
moment to this kind of schedule (see example of next below or + previous
at http://club.net-art.ws/) + some losse theme to each night, could be
location of artists or could be something else

some of the 'packages' we are talking to people about for period
September to November include a 'demo+' night to be lead by zdeno hlinka
from Slovakia http://zden.message.sk, a visit by top local artists of
errorclub Barcelona http://www.ioreq.hm/errrorclub/, especial french
connection night including non-virtual cuisine lead by laurent rodriguez
of Montpellier, http://www.panoplie.fr and elsewhere

any proposals or suggestions welcome. Any institutional or
non-institutional venues you are involved with or know of considered

yours

The residents of BRADYS and associates cordially invite you to an "AROUND US" night of digital surrounds, people around us, sounds around us, sights around us. Party commences 9pm with some talking and progresses from there ... unlikely to finish before dawn

Their site navigation for their film sites compared to your e-commerce click-thru navigation seems like a ghostly emotional trail that the viewer needs to work to pick up. Many viewers and commentators would asses their work favorably alongside top self professed 'net-artists' in terms of expression and depth and they have created outstanding non-commercially tied work such as http://www.shift.jp.org/banner/hires/, but at the same time they have also dealt with informational tied subjects such as http://www.thebeatles.com/getback/treatment/ that whilst remaining immersive and exploratory will gladden the heart of the purest of designers.
