A musician, media producer and format artist working at the convergence of broadcasting and Internet technologies, Adam Hyde has a background in independent media organisations in television and radio in New Zealand (where he founded b.net and Static Television). Now he is based in Europe, where he co-founded the Internet radio project, Radioqualia, and HelpB92 and Open Channels for Kosovo, which assisted independent media in the former Yugoslavia. He was the initiator of Net Congestion: the International Festival of Streaming Media, held in Amsterdam in October 2000, and a co-founder of the Open Streaming Alliance, an initiative that has established several internationally distributed, networked QuickTime streaming servers for arts and cultural use. Under the name 'eset', Adam is presently developing his practice as a software artist, and has designed and built several applications including the Theory Machine and the Radiqualia MediaBrowser. His performances as a live experimental electronica musician have also incorporated live software development as an integral and demonstrative part of the performance. He also works as Manager of Software Development, Web Development, Streaming Media, NT Hosting, and Internal Systems at XS4ALL in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. At Doors 6, he discussed the far-reaching implications of streaming media, together with David Garcia.
