We are building the future of Music
The age of fiber is here. This has great implications for live global network music performance.
Artsmesh is the world's first Network Music Platform for real time, distributed performances that allows musicians to capture, remix and stream live multichannel uncompressed audio.
We aim to be the spaceX of the post-Skype age, enabling netizens to master distributed P2P TV studio environments and live broadcasting. A good metaphor for Artsmesh would be like a jet cockpit for live P2P and federated social messaging, streaming HD audio, video and open sound control (OSC) with under-the-hood open source tools (Jackaudio/Jacktrip, FFMPEG/Syphon, OSCgroups and Gnu Social client) over high speed networks (IPV6 enabled!). Artsmesh is currently available for MacOS only, but we are working hard to develop Artsmesh 2.0 that will be cross-platform.
Artsmesh is aimed to empower users who are serious global networkers: musicians and new-media performers, telecommuters and netcasters. TV production is going the way of the home recording studio and both are now able to network multiple nodes into one production unit for one concert/jam or permanent collaboration.
Artsmesh means to inspire a whole new industry and economy based on live network music jamming across the world. The current way of broadcasting on the internet follows the traditional model of one-to-many and the modern streaming and virtual conferencing solutions are sloppy and slow. We created a new system of broadcasting live performances peer-to-peer-to-many with minimal latency and in high quality.
