Initial development and work with computers, hardware and software, and determining the organization structure for his archiving of his work to double-sided DD, PDF and URLs, to include all audio, video, writing and published works.
Leif Brush has, for decades, acquired a matching vocabulary whose pace
evolved together with his soundworks. Both epicentrally re-radiate
those sought after and then found highly amplified signals from an
array of audible constructions: sensor-laden terrain instruments.
These are conceptually identified as unique catalysts and conduits for
recontextualizing Earth's wave and vibration "sound tracks."
Particular focus is on analog artifacts from terrestrial and
extraterrestrial resources which he hopes can outflow seperately but
along side traditional out bound aural streams currently available via
Internet, cable and digital broadcast.
His Internet-2 quest seeks, in realtime, an on call 2way availability
of the overwhelming and perpetual data-laden analog science
artifacts which could be Y-connected onto a public Internet "pipe".
The flux status he's advocating would continue his ground work for
making sounds available "on through invisible boundaries, from specific
Latitude and Longitude nodes which would be UTC synced." He's
advocating ("using multiple cell phones") that we all could use for
audibly sharing through net-constructing a most obvious and missing
aural aspect of our being earth guests. It's a special activation of
a long term memory niche for "our" vibrations we have in common while
riding on "spaceship earth."
