Content

The US ensemble The Hub is one of the pioneers of network music and live coding. The formation consisting of John Bischoff, Chris Brown, Scot Gresham-Lancaster, Tim Perkis, Phil Stone and Mark Trayle emerged from the League of Automatic Music Composers in 1986. They revolutionized electronic music with democratically organized composition and performance processes operating in networks, and received the Giga-Hertz Prize from the ZKM | Hertz-Lab in 2018.

The publication depicts the collective's work in a historical context, allows companions and musicologists to have their say, and brings together the group's (annotated) compositional writings for the first time. These scores form the heart of the book and are not only archival documents, but also instructions for playing and the starting point for future projects of a new generation of network music.
