From Waag Labs:
KeyWorx is a Multi-User Cross Media Synthesizer - a distributed application that allows multiple players to generate, synthesize and process images, sounds and text within a shared realtime environment. As an instrument it allows communities of players to dynamically control and modify all aspects of digitized media in a collaborative performance. The premise of the KeyWorx Project is to contribute to the emerging genre of telecommunications art. It is an instrument and a communications tool - a vehicle for sending and receiving commands, pushing and blocking choices, negotiating and dictating experiments, improvising and rehearsing the realization of a sensory display - a simultaneous realtime interchange with live and formatted media.
