Living Stereo’s main focus is the recontextualization of the discourse carried on by publicity when this technology was made available for the mainstream market, being its main line the immersiveness that stereo technology makes available to people. Using this anecdote as an excuse for presenting two ways of using, seeing and hearing things in which digital processes are involved, this CD-ROM’s main interface reflects fragments of the 1958 film Introducing stereophonic phonograph records, by Handy (Jam) Organization. There are two main sections: “SoundCode.Sketches” and “cinema.tik”, each linking to different sets of soundtoys (simple and playful sound-visual interfaces and remixers) that reflect two ways of interacting/reacting with code and digital processes linked to sound and visuals.
