"EBN works to harness the power of multimedia audio–visual technology into the most effective electronic behavior control system.
EBN's techniques involve a collection and analysis of massive amounts of randomly recorded audio and video television programming. After a careful screening internal process, the choicest bits are chosen for inclusion in compositions using internal digital sampling and video editing in their own production facility."

"Resolume is created by Edwin de Koning & Bart van der Ploeg together with Tim Walther, Daniel Berio, Joris de Jong, Menno Vink and a few specialized freelancers.
Resolume was born because we wanted to VJ. But we wanted to do it better. Back in 1998 VJ–ing was done with VHS tapes and an mx50 video mixer so it was hard to quickly improvise video to music because tempo could not be adjusted, or even reversed. Effects were limited to what the mx50 had to offer. We thought software would allow us to improvise more and be a better VJ.
We could not find any VJ software that did what we wanted back in 1998 so we started programming our own. We quickly realized our software was much better than our VJ–ing so we work on Resolume full–time since 2002."

"Dataisnature is a weblog of personal and recreational research containing information and links covering the following topics – Robot Art, Algorithmic and Procedural Art, Computational Aesthetics, Glitch Aesthetics, Vj'ing, Video Art, Computational Archaeology and similar subjects. My impetus behind this weblog is to share and collate my findings in a central repository and publish for the benefit of interested communities."
