PINGFM.ORG




From 2000 – 2006 Jan Hendrik Brueggemeier has been founding member and one of the driving forces of the webcast band pingfm.

pingfm.org has been a web based platform for audio/video experiments with impetus on live production of audio and video.

Throughout its active phase the members of pingfm were fascinated by three aspects of streaming and networked media: their low-bandwidth aesthetic, their global interaction and their potential to hybridise different media and spaces like club, theatre, concert, installation, radio, cinema and performance.

Back in those early days live audio/video streaming felt strangely anachronistic in comparison to the more general trend in digital production and its increasing high fidelity. Live-streaming instead meant to one had to:
a.) lower and reduce one’s sound and video quality and not to increase it and
b.) to face what ADILKNO had called “electronic loneliness” because online audiences were more diverse and at times more or less global but still rather marginal in terms of listener numbers.

In order to compensate for that pingfm organised live performances, festivals and conferences like the ping-in-progress-festival in Weimar (2001). pingfm was involved in the preparation and participated in the NO BORDER-Camp Radio in Strasbourg (2002). It received the Bauhaus University Award and participated in the online event series ‘Fusion’ organised by Jill Scott (aside others). It performed at the Webcastlounge at the ART Frankfurt (2001) organised by Station R.O.S.E. Together with Theaterhaus Weimar pingfm hosted the Sleep-Camp at the Kunstfest Weimar (2001). And together with the artist-duo radioqualia pingfm was topic of discussion on the empyre-mailinglist. In 2004 it participated in the Ars Electronica’s long night of radio-art, organised by the ORF Kunstradio.

pingfm was a member of the Dutch webcast station DFM rtv International, the British webcaster pirate TV and Radio Kinesonus, the Japanese platform for experimental sound. pingfm hosted a weekly 2hrs live show on DFM rtv International as well as 1 hr programme slot on the local FM radio.

pingfm solo-exhibition at the CCBA Recife (BR)

>|< pause ‘n’ play

The exhibition was dedicated to the idiosyncratic aesthetic of streaming video.

It showed 35 prints (A0) and short video-clips of internet transmissions by the artist collective pingfm.org.

Live-Streaming is the live transmission of audio and video data via the Internet. For the sake of global accessibility the volume of the data has to be kept as low as possible. To achieve this the video and audio data has to undergo heavy compression. This causes a vivid deformation of the original data.

In the work of pingfm the members has been fascinated by streaming media because of its particular aesthetic, the global interaction and the intersections to other media and locations.
