The founders of micromusic as well as a number of
more or less micromusic-
connected artists, journalists and friends tell about
their experiences with micromusic.net and on-line projects
in general. They point out visions of their own, lending
the book a personal note that is usually kept private
within the community. This turns the book into an interesting
reading for both insiders as well as outsiders. Furthermore,
this part of the book motivates the reader to start
developing on-line and off-line communities of his/her
own. In addition, many encouraging hints and cheat,
dos and don’ts are talked about. We also want
to give institutions and companies within the micromusic
community environment the possibility for advertising
in the book. This advertising space can be acquired
at a reasonable price through the microbuilder.com website.
This advertisement pages also makes it possible to thank
those sponsors and cultural institutions who supported
the microbuilder projects.
The book is a visually stimulating reading for people
interested in music, art and culture due to the many
illustrations, diagrams and photos of micromusic_events
and members. One learns how musical, graphical and textual
contents have developed and affected one another.
