Supply / Demand pt 2 Cable Access: Dead or Alive

Wed, Apr 17, 2013

For their three part series of panel discussions accompanied by related performances and demonstrations, Supply / Demand, E.S.P. TV collaborates with ((audience)) and Harvestworks Digital Media Lab Center to gather practitioners from art and industry to discuss the metamorphosis of Audio Visual Media in general and the opportunities of on-demand distribution. 

While the film and music industries are constantly discussing the opportunities of new technologies, Supply/Demand aims to focus on the needs and the experiences of independent and experimental electronic artists. Bringing together scholars, media aggregators and distributors, and artists (musicians and composers, film makers, video artists, sound artists) Supply / Demand asks: How can artists make use of new channels of distribution? How can artists contribute to emerging protocols of distribution?

Focus for this panel surrounds cable access and lo fi broadcast networks.  Topical issues surround a suffocated media outlet and methods of survival, identifying the audience and public involvement, access and distribution. What platforms exist for these networks to tap into (ie On Demand)? How do artists' work follow the serialized nature of television programming in an online platform?

Panelists include: Jaime Davidovich (artist, The Live! Show), Jamie Mohr (Vermont Cable Access, Bunnybrains), Chuck Stern (MNN programmer), Nancy Cain (Videofreex), and Ashby Lee Collinson (artist, Princess Dies)

*Panels will be broadcast on both Harvestworks website ( and Free103.9 web radio (
