(((NOMUSIC))) started on June 2001, according to the principle that a
diffusion site on Internet should correspond to the representation of the
singular performances of a new generation of artists, musicians,
performers and other actors of the electronic scene. The creation of this
open diffusion site proved to be necessary because of today’s difficulty
to perform disembodied concerts of electronic music on stage, in a
classical frontal (actor/audience) representation space.
Nowadays, these emerging new multimedia performances allow everybody to
approach music in a more singular way, with a different listening practice
and on a more sharing scene.

Every year since 2001, (((NOMUSIC))) offers one or more festivals which
programming is geographically variable and which function is to relay in a
coordinated way a 24 hours earth revolution of no-musicians @ home. This
virtual earth revolution materializes a world wide sound cover of 24 time
zones according to the universal time [GMT 0]. This gives to participants
who are scattered all over the world the opportunity to take part in the
festival. The participation is free of charge and the recruitment is made
exclusively on Internet through diffusion lists. The selection is not made
according to practices and genres criterion but rather according to the
approaches and artistic positions which should echo the logic of the

(((NOMUSIC))) platform offers two types of live. In its classical form,
the participant plays alone at home for one hour. He can also play in
dual. Dual is a live in which two geographical sites are linked via
Internet and mixed together in stereo (participant 1 on the left channel
and participant 2 on the right one).

(((NOMUSIC))) wishes to generate improbable duals and gatherings between
two participants during one hour time in a web audio performance.
We make no storage because we think that Internet is a huge database which
conveys already a great amount of dead informations and we don’t want to
pollute it further. We are thus in favour of instant access to a selective
event. The mechanism of the programming is not automated; it is relayed
manually for 24 hours without any interruption by
laboiteblanche and Carl.Y., two real human routers who are at the service
of continuous audio stream and who endure technical difficulties and give
rapid formation on the technologies of streaming to all the

(((NOMUSIC))) stands between musical negation and anti-bruitism, in a
non-silent interstice of audio manifestation. It allows the
composer-performer to be his own auditor, in a place where nothing should
be heard but just felt as a new entity to observe.


>From 1999 on, laboiteblanche and Carl.Y, have both experimented
streaming through series of interconnected web concerts and programming
via the site NOWEB thus creating a form of festival which dimension is
tailor-made for the web.

The support of the late CICV Pierre Schaeffer ’s residence at
Hérimoncourt [Fr] gave more opportunity for further development of the
interface system; it allowed also an access to a bandwidth of great
capacity, which is essential to bear the year after year rising load of
the connections. Technically speaking, (((NOMUSIC))) is now autonomous and
provides its own lodging on Internet since the creation of the NOHOST

laboiteblanche & Carl.Y play regularly together in concerts or on the net,
from Berlin to Fournos via Paris or other cities. At the same time, each
of them develops different projects related to the new
