Ah this will be so usefull for me. Thanks you for letting me know it even existed!]]>
Sounds interesting. Please let me know if I can help.
After a couple days of reflection (”Text Art? Talkr? Art Talkr? Talkr Art?”), it occurs to me that Talkr provides some infrastructure that allows us here at WRT to easily play-test net art in interesting ways.
For example: we find a new net art project which allows you to upload two audio clips and then creates an audio mashup accompanied by a speech-to-text Flash display. Great - what audio to upload? There are so many interesting choices, but one of them might be a WRT article - perhaps even the WRT article about the project - recurselicious! Further, if the artwork accepted a podcast / Talkr feed as input, and incorporate the audio files dynamically, then we could use the discussion thread commenting on the artwork to dynamically change the contents - something like having a discussion about Warren Sack’s agonistics while watching the display.
Podcasting is more ‘rip’ and ‘burn’ than ‘mix’ right now - but lowering the text-to-audio barrier online creates many interesting possibilities for interactive mixing with art that accepts audio input.]]>
Thanks for the link - I’ve updated the post above to include it as the second among equal options.
Thanks for the service, and good luck.]]>
Thanks for the post on Talkr! The link that you included requires that your readers sign up for a free membership to Talkr before they can subscribe to a podcast of your blog. While I certainly don’t want to discourage anyone from doing that, there’s an easier way. If your readers have already installed a podcasting client, they can simply point that client to Talkr’s RSS feed for your blog: http://www.talkr.com/app/cast_pods.app?feed_id=1362
This feed includes all of the audio files, and is automatically updated every hour.
