The idea is to create a rural microcosm in AMRO through the creation of a web radio broadcast, that talks about the hyper-local (AMRO) and is forwarded beyond the local.
The process can be divided into different groups: contents, audio processing, backend, frontend.
A computation process, in the etymological sense: from Latin, com- putare, to reckon together, and not only between humans but interacting with the ecosystem we are dwelling at that moment.
Jacopo and Federico will be there IRL but the others Habitanti***** will be URL connected from our cottage at Ca' de Monti.
It would be possible to set up a webpage for the streaming in our server https://habitattt.it, then use Icecast2 from http://lurk.org to broadcast, sending the audio from a laptop with Butt or Liquidsoap.
This networked documentation layer of the AMRO festival is a collaboration between Habitat and Varia. The content gathering part will be a shared effort, from which two publishing formats will be rendered: a printed bulletin (AMRO Times) and an online radio platform (AMRO Tribes). You can join the full editorial process or just jump into parts of it, depending on your preference for content gathering, print and/or radio.
14.00-16.30: first meeting, 1h with both Habitat and Varia (Introducing Content gathering), 1.5h splitted respectively about the tools for radio system (AMRO Tribes) and the making of the printed bulletin (AMRO Times)
17.00-18.00: editorial check in
14.00-16.00: preparing the PDF / organizing audio material for the stream
16.00: print deadline!
17.00: radio broadcast!
Content gathering will start on Wednesday evening! However, since our first meeting is on Thursday at 14.00, you can find us in the exhibition space + at https://chat-amro-times.vvvvvvaria.org/ for quick installments to already get started.
