Newsletter – March 2008

banner2.jpgWelcome to the March 2008 issue of Networked Music Review Newsletter, a monthly review of some of the many events archived on Networked_Music_Review [to receive this via email, subscribe here].

Sound art continued to fill many of the March blog entries, but of equal importance this month were the sound and light, or sound and video entries. Tunnel Vision and Filling Vessel are two of particular interest. Tunnel Vision is an interactive sound and light sculpture. Created by Dutch art engineer Paul Klotz, and inspired by Nikola Tesla — the famous Serbian inventor, physicist, and electrical engineer — the shape of the installation is based on an abstraction of the 100Hz tone made by electrical generators. You can put your hands inside the sculpture changes the appearance and the sound produced by it. Five meters long, it changes its appearance and the sound produced by it whenever you put your hands inside it. Continue reading

NMR Commission: “Network Sonification” by Zach Layton

logo2.jpgNetwork Sonification by Zach Layton [Needs Quicktime Player] – In Network Sonification, a program written in java crawls across the Internet, grabbing as many related URLs as possible and analyzing their contents. Using Max/MSP, the data coming from the webcrawler program is translated into sound. The frequency and range of words, images and links on these pages create a kind of aural snapshot, giving each page a unique sonic character that is written in real time. Layton offers us a range of sonic portraits, from Boing Boing to the New York Times, enabling us to experience them as networked sonic entities rather than discrete visual/semantic pages.

Oldest recorded voices sing again

leon_scott_de_martinville.jpg[Image: Phonautograph] “An “ethereal” 10 second clip of a woman singing a French folk song has been played for the first time in 150 years. The recording of “Au Clair de la Lune”, recorded in 1860, is thought to be the oldest known recorded human voice. A phonograph of Thomas Edison singing a children’s song in 1877 was previously thought to be the oldest record.

The new “phonautograph”, created by etching soot-covered paper, has now been played by US scientists using a “virtual stylus” to read the lines. “When I first heard the recording as you hear it … it was magical, so ethereal,” audio historian David Giovannoni, who found the recording, told AP.” Continue reading Oldest recorded voices sing again, BBC News. You can also listen to the recording.
