[:] PLUG3 [:] will transmit 48 live performances for 2 days in participation with the Tenth Annual International Headphone Festival – LE PLACARD X – a nonstop streaming interaural experiment that migrates from city to city broadcasting headphone concerts in listening rooms around the world. The festival experiments with exploring new medias, sonic perception, levels of concentration, isolation as inspiration, and spontaneous modification within a global community of eclectic culture- jammers, curious engineers, instigators and self-sufficient sound artists. Initiated in 1998 by Parisian musician Erik Minkkinen, who broadcast a performance from the closet in his apartment to listeners in Japan, LE PLACARD is a nomadic "festival within a festival" that functions under a modality of open programming; artists performing self-organize this global program.
