Authored by Danish sound artists Tore Bahnson and William Louis Sørensen
On the web a sound string is being strung through time and distances. The string can be played from any site in the world as you turn on the computer, and a speaker is inserted into a visualizing sound environment.
On the Netstrings homepage the user can operate a series of tools that will affect the sound material. At any given moment in time, when activated, the tools will change the sound of the string on the Net into a prolonged and differently composed string, digitalized in sound and image. Hence the string will play on from this point of time until the next global user interacts with it.

Since the sixties, where he played experimental rock and worked with lightshow in Jazzhus Montmartre, Tore Bahnson has kept on zapping between medias and expressions.
Formal studies at the Architect School and the Social Sciences Graduate Programme at Roskilde University Center, did not hinder him to engage in work with TV, movies, animation, writings, design, publications of books and music, exhibitions of sculpture and paintings, and last but not least the digital/multimedia expressions, with the computer as a central tool.

William Louis Sørensen has since 1962 exhibited painting, graphic and sculpture at official Danish exhibitions. Around 1965 he started working with photo, film, video and environments, performances, installations in Denmark and abroad.
