GLOBAL HOCKETS (1998). 19'30" condensed version of the one hour music-performance by NZ group From Scratch in collaboration with German new-media group Supreme Particles.

All sonics trigger effects in light & image via interactivity.

video and interactivity, Michael Saup.
From Scratch; Shane Currey, Adrian Croucher, Phil Dadson, Darryn Harkness.. Phil D.

Premiered, 1998 at the NZ Festival of Arts, supported by CNZ arts council, later toured in Europe, including Ars Electronica, Linz / Austria, World-wide Video Festival, Amsterdam and Mousonturm, Frankfurt.

NB. An essential element of hocketing is integration - working together and the interlocking of ideas and objectives. Hocketing in strictly musical terms is the sharing of a rhythmic /melodic line or phrase between two or more players.
