What is MULTIPLE INSERTIONS ?
Multiple Insertions is a community project which was overseen by the Pan
Handler Production group.
Multiple Insertions is
an Omni-Platform (tm) CDROM -- this means that you can "insert" this CDROM into any modern computer equipped with a CDROM drive and you can also "insert" it into a regular audio CD player.
The AUDIO you will hear on your CD player and on the CDROM is 36 minutes
of SWEAT ENGINE music.
The DATA on the CDROM is an anthology/compilation of
original still art, writing, animation, products, and anything anyone could creatively
scrape out of their heads (~330 MB worth of content). Copyright of artistic material belongs to the individual artist. Contact the artist directly or Pan Handler Production for duplication and redistribution permission and information.
Here is the answer to that burning question -- "How can this CDROM be Omni-Platform -- hasn't the industry always said we had to get a Mac or a PC?"
There are two interfaces provided on this CDROM: one in HTML (making the CDROM truly cross-platform) and the other in Director allowing a kiosk-style runtime
for the MacOS and Windows operating systems. We didn't want to leave out CDROM-less. So, we took the SWEAT ENGINE audio CD, added the data and said "fuck it, we'll sell it for the price of an audio CD". So, the CDROM-full get a little bonus.
The Point of it All
- A SWEAT ENGINE audio CD; MULTIPLE INSERTIONS is also an independent project focused supporting the independent artist. We wanted a place where artists, music-band people, computer-techno people, (and then some) can converge and produce a product promoting not only their
own work, but the entire "independent artist" concept as a whole.
We also like throwing shows and performances with the people who have contributed their work to the project.
The Original Multiple Insertions Proposed Themes
- The Cyber and Industrial way of life.
- The progression, enhancement and distribution of technology and information.
- The effects of technology on society and culture.
The Original Request for Content
- Original Animation and Movies
- Original Still Graphics & Computer Images.
- Literature - Poetry, Prose, and miscellaneous Quips & Clips
- Products Relating to the theme
- CDROM Support Art and Help - HTML programming, support software collection,
assistance with legal issues, publicity and promotion, CDROM distribution, collection of art, etc.
- Because Multiple Insertions is a community project, we couldn't do much but
provide hot coffee and cookies for everyone. But every artist or programmer
who contributed to the project now has the opportunity to purchase
copies of the CDROM at cost for personal use or resale.
