  "description": "<p>very long cat are a new network music duo combining tabla and live coding, rehearsing and performing via the Inter- net, and employing an eclectic range of techniques and technologies. \ue049e specific structure of the ensemble&rsquo;s network music setup, with one musician live coding and monitoring their own performance with a calibrated delay, allows both musicians to experience each other&rsquo;s performances as synchronized. \ue049is poster focuses on the evolving technical con- figuration of this hybrid ensemble, with an emphasis on the constraints imposed by the insistence on &ldquo;zero latency&rdquo; in a live coding ensemble (some sound transformations are not feasible, and others are implemented in a characteristic way).</p>",
