Everyday Listening: sonic inspiration collects inspiring and remarkable sound art and creative sound design projects, installations, reviews of urban soundscapes, places, contemporary or experimental, mostly electronic music. You might also read about new ways of using and distributing music and sound.
The term Everyday Listening is used to describe the way we use sound to find our way in our everyday life. There's an article by Buxton, Gaver & Bly giving a very clear description of this phenomenon:
"Everyday listening is a matter of listening to the attributes of events in the world - the speed of a passing automobile, the force of a slammed door, whether a person is walking up or downstairs."
SONUS is an online listening library (jukebox) of electroacoustic works, created and managed by the CEC for the benefit of the greater Electroacoustic / Computer Music / Sound Art community.
The CEC created SONUS to make electroacoustic pieces easily accessible to audiences everywhere. SONUS is a valuable tool for composers to promote their work, and a fascinating resource for listeners, with over 1800 works in a wide variety of aesthetics already in the catalogue.
Sound artwork: Nonrepetitive by Achim Wollscheid
Through the graphical interface the user/participant can influence the parameters of a sound data generator, effecting things like sound colour, density and complexity. The impact of the change can be seen on the interface by other users visiting at the same time, in another place and they may also mutually interfere through the interface, in order to change the generation of sound.
Once you grab the line - representing the present wave spectrum of what is to be heard - and change it, any other user online on this page will witness the alteration. In other words, this piece is not an applet that you download, but an online piece that you actually change on the server while others can watch, listen, and equally interact. The piece is thus subject to a play or negotiation between partners.

The Internet is not only the central media for all communication for art, discourse, (re)presentation and research, most of all the Internet is and will be a progressively dominant influence on art itself. http://www.browserbased.org/
What is BrowserBased?
BrowserBased is partly a material / technically oriented platform dealing with the browser based context as well as a net-culture knowledge base. BrowserBased is a gathering in Amsterdam with guest speakers, workshops, etc. BrowserBased is also a net-culture group blog on Facebook, found here:
Where is BrowserBased?
BrowserBased’s geo-marker is centered at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, but aims to offer a platform for net related art to Amsterdam, which sadly currently is non-existent. Concentrically it also reaches out to other academies and cities in the Netherlands. The Facebook group opens its arms to the world, which is the natural habitat.
BrowserBased does not believe in academic or geographical constraints. Any handshake is welcome.
The Archive of Digital Art
As a pioneer in the field of Media Arts research, the ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART (ADA, former Database of Virtual Art) documents the rapidly evolving field of digital installation art for more than a decade now. This complex, research-oriented overview of works at the intersection of art, science, and technology has been developed in cooperation with international media artists, researchers and institutions, as a collective project.
Since todays digital artworks are processual, ephemeral, interactive, multimedia-based, and fundamentally context dependent, because of their different structure, they require a modified, we called it an ‚expanded concept of documentation‘. The ADA represents the scientific selection of several hundred international artists of approx 5000 evaluated artists. High importance we ascribe to artistic inventions like innovative interfaces, displays or software. ADA
