Networked_Music_Review Commission: "ItSpace" by Peter Traub

"ItSpace" creates a network of pages within the social networking siteMySpace. Instead of people, the pages feature everyday household objectsfrom the artist's house. Each page has a photo of the object, a description,and most importantly, a 1-minute piece composed of samples of the objectbeing struck, resonated, and so forth. All the pages, or objects, are'friends' with each other, so that visitors who discover one object may jumpto the others to see their profiles and hear their sounds. Visitors to thesite are invited to create new "ItSpace" pages with pieces made from theirown household objects and link those in as 'friends' of the original set.
