subtitle: Internet Audio Collabs
Reissue of the 2001 private release
From the sleeve notes:
"It happened that the BBC world service sent me a recording of Sudanese Zar ceremonies and asked for a remix. Oh no, not again of those tourist ethno excursions I thought and I layed off the tape. After 1,5 years I found it again, listened and started to work on fictional Sudan scape. When it was finished I wanted to know how other peoples creativity would flow into such a ceremony. On my website I installed a collaboration platform and invited visitors to participate in this idea and thus "Africana" was initiated. Only 4 samples of the original tape were given for the start. 2 more collaborations followed in a similar way in which the participants had access to a data account where they could up- and download the results of the team. These were finally edited and mixed. This Internet collaboration proved how nice and effective it can be working together with people you never have seen nor met before. The Internet made it possible."
