"Best of Webcasting": 
Parallel to STReaming, Station Rose started with a series of TV productions in  may 2002.

Out of 191 webcasts, which have taken place at since 1999, a special videoedition was re-edited for TV each month.

- how we did it:

1) we STReamed our lives->into the net. •   

2) we did that circa
190 times.

3) we remixed it for TV

“Best of Webcasting”
was on TV every week for 1 hour.


In spring 2002 media artists Station Rose/STR developed the TV series „Best of Webcasting".

The program was shown 4 years from 2002-2006.

STR produced all in all 31 programs, thus generating 31 hours of material of their own.

It can be said that this broadcast has been one of the rare (regular) art TV programs,
antedating a style made popular by youtube etc. later,
- by merging performance, moderation, documentation, interviews,... into a contemporary format.

//each program :

For the STR TV program, performance and audiovisual art have been merged with documentation, moderation & interviews into a contemporary digital artistic format.


- Background
This unique TV-format resulted from live audiovisual Webcasts in the net at,
which STR had started from Berlin & their Frankfurt studio in 1999.

So far around 200 Webcasts have taken place until now, where audiovisual live performances
& interviews with guests in the studio are mixed into new aesthetics in realtime.

A simultaneous working in front & behind the camera(s), encoder & computers has been
The realtime Webcasts were recorded on DV tape- thus allowing to create a
„Best of Webcasting", a remix and re-editing for the medium TV.

- Best of Webcasting_storyboards
the length of each webcast has been ca. 56min. most of the time 3 audio-visual compositions
for 1 series were used. 1 audio-visual composition comes in 2-4 different takes,
finally arranged in the storyboard in a special dramaturgy.

For each program not more than 2-3 compositions have been used, and their different
cut up versions/remixes have been arranged in a chronology.

Information density & tempo meet near-stop & slowness.
Compression is followed by emptyness.

Activity, amidst deliberatedly generated waiting-loops.


inverse publishing: from the internet> TV
The processing for the 1-hour TV program was a new task every month:
sequences, loops, audiovisual samples, text samples & more out of the live Webcasts were recontextualized & rearranged into new structures.

While the Webcasts live on the one-hour improvisation over one principal theme, the TV versions reflect the conventions of the mass medium, processing them into compressed remixes in a unique and critical way.
In contrary to the online versions the length of the tracks gets diminished to 4-8 minutes.

- Trailer
A black-and-white trailer, which has been designed for the program, interrupts the flow at the end of each clip, a minimalistic & colorless break amid the flow of the different takes.
This TV project posed a new challenge for Station Rose, namely to go into the classic medium television on one hand, on the other allocating the new Webcast style, which has been developed in/with the Internet, and to work on a unique style, which also works inside TV.
