Nio

"Nio, like Jim Andrews's earlier visual poetry, explores the idea that poetic experience is not the exclusive territory of words and lines. The work casts the interactor in the position of composer, mixing and sequencing doo-wop voice audio samples and corresponding lettristic animations that swirl about in three dimensions. Without providing any form of explicit representation, the piece creates a playful environment for evocative synesthesia."

-- From Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 1

"The main part of the Nio project is an interactive audio piece done in Shockwave. It consists of two 'verses.' In verse 1, the wreader layers audio and lettristic animations. In verse 2, the wreader both layers and sequences them. Verse 2 is a little sequencer."

-- From "Author Description" in Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 1
