The Hub

The Hub is a computer network band.

The Hub is a computer network band that originated in the eighties. Six individual composer/performers - Chris Brown, Scot Gresham Lancaster, John Bischoff, Tim Perkis, Mark Trayle, and Phil Stone - connected separate computer-controlled music synthesizers into a network. The ensemble explored a new genre called Computer Network Music.

The members of The Hub electronically coordinated the activity of their individual systems through a central microcomputer, "the hub" itself, as well as manually through ears, eyes, and hands. The Hub sought surprise through the lively and unpredictable responses of their systems, and instead of trying to eliminate the imperfect human performer, used the electronic tools available to enhance the social aspect of music making.
