April 22, 2000
Some early web multimedia projects by Jon Lybrook and Chronosynthesis Productions included one of the very first video webcasts from the Boulder Theater, in Boulder Colorado on April 22, 2000. The project was done in conjunction with the now defunct Worldstream Communications. It was a simple, one camera webcast with streaming audio of a performance by the versatile California Guitar Trio, along with bass legend Tony Levin followed by a Q&A hosted by Mark J. of KRCC Radio. Questions were posted via the text chat that accompanied the video. The webcast was played to a full house at the Boulder Theater, and to a web audience of about 80. There was some concern by the management at the time that KGNU Radio, a sponsoring radio station could not tell people about the webcast, since they feared it would detract from ticket sales. Sadly, the archived copy of this historic webcast was only available in a proprietary format that is no longer supported.
January and February of 2000
Other early projects involving multimedia and web streaming included setting up the first mp3 streaming icecast server for KGNU Radio in Boulder Colorado, as well as an icecast audio server for Slooh.com. Slooh provides web-based access to high-powered telescopes for astronomy enthusiasts. Jon Lybrook and Chronosynthesis Productions provided technical consultation and on-going support to both these fun community-oriented organizations and their projects.
Chronosynthesis (or Life in Barrytown)
A Film in three acts by Jon Lybrook.
Made in 16mm film in 1989, re-edited digitally in 1996 and again in 2011, this work uses many different techniques, from painting on film, superimposition, stop-motion animation, and other analog image processing to explore the ideas of romanticism, idealism, and fatalism through often heavily layered visual imagery and audio.
Originally shown on one reel, using high fidelity, wild sync sound (Wild Hi-Fi!).
