the publishing of music.
Dendriet is a network of musicians in The Hague (.nl) that perform with networked electronic and acoustic instruments. The word dendriet, or dendrite, is also the name for the receptors of a nervecell. Dendrites are typically branching branches. You'll find these fractal shapes in ice, in metal chrystals in limestone, and likewise, in our performance setups. Please do check out our homepage by clicking the stone. You too are invited to join the discussions.

Why can I like those sounds? Did I learn to listen to objectless sounds, or do I have enough associations with things that go "ping" like Bea5, Putneys, Moogs, and microwave ovens that have just finished my pizza? (I heard that one in Biomekano.)
Can you listen to music without thinking of objects in spaces (rooms, landscapes or starscapes)?
The court did not say anything about weather it is legal to use such a program. This can mean that the Buma's next step can be sueing users, just like the RIAA did. On the other hand, the dutch politician Martijn van Dam says file sharing is legal under the current law.
I think the next step need to be that musicians should be given the freedom to dicide weather their music may be shared or not. If you have a cd out, or have some airplay, there's no option but to become a Buma/Stemra member, or you will not get the royalties that are legally yours. Being a member also means that you may not put your own music online, because ALL music that you made and will make, no piece excluded, is legally owned by the Buma, and they will not allow you to make it available for downloading.
So: Kazaa is legal and sharing is legal. Yet putting your own music online is not legal, due to a contract you have to sign. A rediculous situation.
Or a little movie I made, running a filter over a picture 300 times recursively, by hand. Zen, that is: Plastic Wrapped Sax Movie. You may listen to the full length session I did for it's soundtrack: Plastic Wrapped Sax Soundtrack
