Auditory Illusions

dn13355-1_250.jpgAs part of the New Scientist’s February issue on music, Daniel Levitin has written The Music Illusion, which looks at auditory illusions and how they can help us understand the workings of the human brain. Here are five of the most striking auditory illusions discovered so far. You can hear examples of each by going to the The Music Illusion.

1. Barber’s shop illusion, which is a demonstration of the stereo effect and how we can figure out where a sound is coming from.

2. Phantom words. I loved this one. My nephew, who I almost never see or hear from, has a unique name, “Milby”, and as I listened, I heard “Milby” loud and clear and then, “no breath” over and over again, making me wonder if I should call and see if he’s all right. Continue reading

Hands-on, Interview: Stribe Multi-Touch Controller

2276257092_e1695a19a4.jpgOnce the domain of the few, creating and customizing sophisticated DIY controllers is now more accessible than ever. That means, if you can’t find what you want, and you’re ambitious and knowledgeable enough, you go make your own. Josh Boughey was impressed by the Monome enough to buy one — but the Monome, a grid of on/off buttons, doesn’t provide any kind of variable control. So Josh built his own, combining a series of parallel touch strips with LED indicators. (The lights are the tricky part, requiring an obscene number of connections.) Continue reading

Live Stage: Breath Control [ca Toronto]

index_graphic_07.gifBreath Control by Darren Copeland – an audio-video installation :: March 5-16, 2008; 1-6 pm :: Gallery 1313, 1313 Queen Street West, Toronto :: Opening Reception: March 6, 2008; 7 pm.

Breath Control is an interactive audio-visual installation by sound artist Darren Copeland that relates the visceral experience of one’s last breath to the sounds of everyday life. Breath Control also confronts the conventions of the gallery experience by altering the gallery’s interior design in order to re-structure the sensory hierarchy.

Breathing measures time. It is a rate of control, a rate for balancing input and output. R. Murray Schafer once pointed out that the human body is one of the best engineering examples of refined acoustic design. In order to best hear the sounds around one, the sounds of the body are minimized. Continue reading
