"The release of the Radiotopia album, compiled and edited by Rupert Huber (Tosca), is the third collaboration between the Austrian Ars Electronic Center and Cologne's Staubgold label, after Alexander Balanescu's Lume Lume, and Vladislav Delay's Naima. Participating artists include Alexander Balanescu, Rupert Huber, Andres Bosshard, Lukas Ligeti, Sam Auinger, Bruce Odland, Isabella Bordoni, Lorenzo Brusci and many more. Strictly limited to 1000 copies worldwide, this CD documents the fascinating 'Radiotopia' sound/network project as presented during the open air Klangpark at last year's Ars Electronica festival. Radiotopia, the largest and most extensive of projects ever launched by the Ars Electronica festival, was simultaneously a demonstration and an attempt. On the one hand it was a demonstration of the evolvement in the Internet and other transmission and data manipulation technology over the course of the years, on the other hand -- perhaps more significantly -- it was an attempt to illustrate the points and areas where the Internet and other technologies still have difficulties and weaknesses, and to indicate pathways for future improvements and developments. The center of Radiotopia was the global sound network database designed by August Black and Norbert Math. It was a simultaneous storage bank of freely accessible sound material that transcended time, location, cultural and geographical borders. Anyone with access to the Internet was able to join in. This sound network database (with a total of over 500 submissions) was the basis of the material that the international artists invited to the festival worked with."
