QUARTET WITH PYRAMID SCHEME is a streaming online sound installation by Jordan Topiel Paul, Eric Laska, Richard Kamerman & Reed Evan Rosenberg whose audio content is collected through a sixteen-week pyramid scheme structure (March 11, 2011 – July 1, 2011).
Every two weeks, a new set of participants (recruited by prior participants) submits sound samples that the quartet will selectively work into the stream. The samples are played continuously in unpredictable variations through a Max/MSP patch. By the end of the process, 512 participants will have been asked to contribute.
