Sound in the Discourse of Synaesthesia

photo_biagini_repurcussions.jpg“In the late 1940s, radio engineer-turned-composer Pierre Schaeffer celebrated a defining property of audio recording and radio transmission: the ability to separate sounds from their visible sources. This affirmation cut against the grain of modern thought, for no lesser cultural critics than Martin Heidegger, Theodor Adorno, and Max Horkheimer had assailed these technologies for dulling our auditory sensibility. Schaeffer, however, argued that records and radio triumphantly subvert the hegemony of vision to make possible the experience of “sound as such.” In doing so, Schaeffer continued, they revive a neglected form of listening he termed “acousmatic,” in deference to the ancient akousmatikoi, disciples of Pythagoras who were made to listen to their master’s voice while he was hidden behind a curtain…” Continue reading Lost in Translation: Sound in the Discourse of Synaesthesia by Christoph Cox, Artforum, October 2005.

Reblogged Micro Performance

2042497731_0312862d32.jpgMikro is a series of improvised performances using the immediate surroundings as raw material: A microscope captures everyday objects and surfaces like wallpaper, coins, clothing, furniture, newspapers and transforms it into an explosive universe of textures. Contact microphones and electromagnetic sniffers pick up unhearable sounds to create the live soundtrack. Mikro is a collaboration between HC Gilje (video) and Justin Bennett (sound). Performances so far: Paradiso (Amsterdam), IMAL (Brussels), TAG (den Haag), DNK (Amsterdam), Bergen Kunsthall Landmark (Bergen), Laznia (Gdansk) [posted on HC Gilje blog]

Sound Café 2008: Call for Sound [uk Jedburgh]

jcac1w300h400.jpgSound Café 2008 will take place in Jedburgh’s Community and Arts Centre on the Scottish border on 9 February 2008. The one day event will feature selected works from the Call for Works. In the afternoon a selection of pieces will be played over a headphone installation in the Blue Room. In the evening a selection of stereo and 4-channel sound works will be presented in the Butterfield Gallery.

Sound Café 2008 will focus on phonographic forms which deal with documentary and archive, and which broadly address the disciplines of anthropology and ethnography through the medium of sound. Continue reading

Arduino Sound

arduinosoundpart3bb-3.jpgArduino Sound – Part 1: This is the first in a series of articles about generating sound with an Arduino. The goals are to generate good quality sound which can be used to play simple tones, stored music, sampled sound, and even act as a MIDI synthesizer. I will cover the basic design, including code and hardware that anyone can use to add sound to Arduino microcontroller projects.

Arduino Sound Part 2: Hello World: This is the second in a series of articles about generating sound with an Arduino. In this article we take a small step; “Hello World” for Arduino sound. We prepare for our future experiments by hooking up a PC or powered speaker so we can hear the Arduino sing. Also see Arduino Sound Part 3: Playing a Melody.

Fire Organ

suede_luleaa.jpgThe Fire Organ – by Michel Moglia – is an instrument that transforms the heat from a flame into a new energy source, that of sound. The thermal exchanges that take place in the tubes of the Organ, which are generated by multiple vibrations within, are directly linked to meteorology. In particular, the idea of unstable equilibriums, the liberation of energy occurring between the conflicting masses of hot air, with those of cold air. Listen here. Continue reading

Developing a “Sense of Presence” with a Machine

interdisciplinary.jpgDesigning for the 21st Century Design Challenge 5 – Embodiment of a Live Music Algorithm by Tim Blackwell: Nature-inspired algorithms for autonomous music generation have been developed which have been used in performances. This software has many of the abilities of a live improvising musician, it can create, suggest and respond to those around it. However, it only has presence as software. In this design challenge we are interested in embodiment. How do we imbue the software with a meaningful physical presence?

If we assume that this will have a positive effect on the experience of the listener and off the performer, possibly increasing the space of possible interactions for example, the question comes: Continue reading

Live Stage: A Journey Through Sound [uk London]

3d-sound2.jpgCybersalon / NMK / SMARTlab Xmas Lecture 07 presents Martyn Ware: A Journey Through Sound :: December 6, 2007; 7-10.30 pm :: The Pavilion, University of Westminster, New Cavendish Street campus, London [Nearest tube: Goodge Street, Warren Street]

Music has been at the vanguard of the creative industries & has impacted upon new technologies. Digitisation and the growth of the Internet have had profound effects on music production, distribution and even the way we listen. Now music and sound are at the forefront of emerging technologies that can make truly immersive, sensorial experiences – akin to the Star Trek ‘holodeck’ – a step closer to reality. What does this ‘Sci-fi Hi-fi’ future hold for the musicians of tomorrow? Continue reading
