Rivalium is a system demonstrating audio streaming through web technology and an exploratory lens. It calls to question the utility of streaming, its potential, its limitations, and how we can re-imagine our engagement with media and information. The design and production of the system is open, anyone can repurpose the technology, and it is freely available, so anyone can use it.
Mobility first enabled me to collaborate with artists I had not known prior to the project. It was a great opportunity to gain insight into my work from a different perspective.
Taming of the Stream: Performance with(in) protocol.

I found this experience to be useful for helping demonstrate the audio capacity and technical limitations of these tools.
