NETFIELD (Tim Perkis, Bill Thibault and Philip Perkins)  1996 A collaboration of three Bay Area sound & computer artists, this piece created a spatial sonic environment accessible to early users of the internet. Twenty five continuous environmental recordings made by Perkins from a diverse range of environments around the globe are organized into a two dimensional world ranging from wet to dry along one dimension and urban to rural along the other. Listeners at internet-connected computers anywhere could move through this spatialized sound field, using software they downloaded from this site. After downloading and starting up the client application, users could move through the Netfield world by using the arrow keys on their keyboard; as they passed from one zone to another, the sounds would smoothly mix and be spatialized using a custom 3d sound spatialization system.
