aether9 – REMOTE REALTIME STORYTELLING is a print publication based on the archives of the aether9 project, published in 2012.


Aether9 is a collaborative adventure exploring the danger zones of networked audio-visual live performance. This catalogue of their work was generated from the collection of images, mailing-list and chat interactions that developed between 2007 – 2010. The process, behind-the-scenes discussions and perils of networked communication, technical pitfalls, and script development, can thus be followed from performance to performance.

In addition, the book can be navigated (non-linearly) by following selected paths (TRACEROUTES) based on underlining themes, interests and whims of the aether9 project.

This book was designed during an intense sprint and some after shocks from June to September 2012, in collaboration with the Open Source Publishing team.
