Reblogged Sound Jewelry: Networking with Sound

soundjewelry.jpgMerging music and mobile technology indicates promising future developments in a rapidly emerging field. The walkman, the mobile phone, and the iPod have already integrated music into users’ social and geographic erratic locations and they have also reshaped users’ urban landscape experience. With ad hoc networking, Internet connection, and context-awareness, mobile music technology offers countless new artistic, commercial and socio-cultural opportunities for creating, listening and sharing music. But which new forms of music interaction lie ahead in this context? Takuya Yamauchi, reasearcher at Keio University, with his professor Toru Iwatake, a well known electronic media composer, explores one of the possible paths with Sound Jewelry, a sound installation supported by spatial sensing system within a Personal Area Network (PAN).

Always Something Somewhere Else

always-something.jpgGarrett Lynch writes about Always Something Somewhere Else by Duncan Speakman, a sound artist exploring ideas of memory, geography and communication. The work is a GPS based soundwalk that builds itself as you experience it. To create it I worked with Hewlett Packard in Bristol and their new mscape software.

In the work the listener is asked to locate various substances that form the contemporary urban environment (glass, stone, concrete etc.). As they mark the location of each one they begin to hear interwoven stories connecting them to remote locations around the world, soundtracked with a generative music score. The narratives are progressed and concluded as the listener returns to the locations they chose. The piece is reflective and sometimes melancholy, it touches on issues of climate change and global awareness, but ultimately encourages the listener to treasure the moments around them… Continue reading

OPEN n0.9: Sound in Art and Culture

1993-227-320.jpgOPEN n0.9 Sound: Sound in Art and Culture – Open 9 examines the role of sound in the public domain. After all, public space is manifest not only visually, but also, and to a considerable extent, acoustically: its public nature hinges on visibility as well as on audibility. All the same, the accent in cultural or social analyses of the public space still often rests on the visual. Despite sound’s ubiquity and inescapability, it is usually regarded as being merely illustrative, a minor consideration or nuisance. Marshall McLuhan took a critical stance on the dominance of ‘visual space’ as the ‘linear, quantitative mode of perception that is characteristic of the Western world’. In his view, however, this traditional space was being superseded by the ‘global village’, constituted by the electronic media, which he likened to ‘acoustic space’, a mythical, tactile, organic and integral space that is characterized by solidarity.

The Musicians

musicians.jpgThe Musicians, by Julia Burns [with Ardrian Hardjono and Balint Seeber] :: 17 June – 18 August, 2007 :: Beta_space, Cyberworlds Gallery – Ground Floor – Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.

Drawing from the work of David Rokeby, ‘The Musicians’ is an early prototype, interactive artwork that utilizes cinematography and sound to engage audiences via invisible touch pads. Users are encouraged to play notes or compose music by directing the two professional musicians as they jam filmically, the audience members directly impacting the artwork via their movements. The aesthetic aim of The Musicians is to visualize the emotional influence the audience members have over the characters onscreen. Amidst witty commentary and pre-programmed repertoires, the musicians play to draw audience members into the museum space and then attempt to hold their attention by empowering the user with the ability to direct their activities.

Live Stage: Meme Music Night [us Williamsburg, NYC]

kirn.jpgMEME: Pat Muchmore, Bill Brittelle, Tuba, Joe Exley, Red Sails, Molly Thompson, and Peter Kirn :: June 27, 7:30pm :: $5 :: Galapagos Back Room, Williamsburg :: Directions.

Peter Kirn is also doing a 20-minute live music/keyboard/visual set at the return of the Meme Music night. Galapagos is in its last days as a Williamsburg space before the big move to Brooklyn. Kirn will be doing some of his more floaty ethereal ambient stuff. He fully expects some of his colleagues to do the opposite. That should mix it up.

Meme’s mission: “Meme Music is a tri-monthly series dedicated to 1. The right to drink while listening to “classical” music, 2. The idea that the words “experimental” and “avant-garde” don’t have to be defined as mindlessly boring, 3. Since nowadays rock musicians and classical musicians are playing the same instruments and writing the same sorts of songs, shouldn’t they get to share billing? 4. Multi-media is neat! And 5. Listening to music should be fun, goddamnit!”
