The Sound of eBay

ebay.jpgThe Sound of eBay by UBERMORGEN.COM … enjoy the silence!

First there was silence…
Then there was data…
But there was no story…
Just images and sounds…

We love it! The Sound of eBay is our affirmative low-tech contribution to the ATOMIC soundtrack of the peer-to-peer hyper-catastrophic shock-capitalism.

Beautiful project! Especially the scary parts about sensitive data. Very well worded, too. I can’t wait to see some fear trickle through the datasphere…” Douglas Ruskoff Continue reading

Faraphonia de los Cuatro Elementos [Santa Monica-Barcelona]

pageimage-224612-1216858.jpgSonom – Farophonía Sintética :: Santa Monica – Barcelona :: June 19-21, 2008.

This multimedia installation by the group Sonom is a reinterpretation of the “Faraphonía de los Cuatro Elementos” (roughly translatable as “Lighthouse-phony of the Four Elements”). It springs from the idea of a lighthouse as a symbol that connects nature’s four elements: from land, it emits light, which travels through the air and reaches the sea.

In “Farophonía de los Cuatro Elementos”, Sonom creates an audiovisual symphony that amplifies the perception of the natural elements that converge around lighthouses. Farophonía is synthesised through the creation of a hypnotic atmosphere based on audiovisual synaesthesia, produced through the Faróphono and a Videofaro (Video-lighthouse). Continue reading

“Sound Barrier” by Maia Urstad

barrier.jpgSOUND BARRIER is a new work by Maia Urstad, a sound installation consisting of some 130 CD-and cassette radios assembled as a wall. Visually, these devices function as elements in a structure inspired by historical stone constructions.

SOUND BARRIER relates to earlier works such as STATIONS; a sound installation deriving its visual basis from the Roman arch; and CLEOPATRA’S NEEDLES; a concert performance inspired by Pharonic Egyptian structures.

The creative impulses for SOUND BARRIER originate in the historical remains of buildings, i.e., ruins. Technology, here, electronics – a development from our own time, comprises the ‘stones’. Continue reading

David Morneau’s music podcasts to conclude

david_morneau.jpgDavid Morneau will bring his composition-a-day project, 60×365, to an end on June 30th. You can hear the conclusion by visiting http://60×365.com

Every day for the past year, Morneau has composed and posted a new sixty-second composition. That’s just over six hours of new music in sixty-second installments. For this project, Morneau explored a wide variety of musical styles and techniques, including musique concrète, sine wave synthesis, digital sampling, 8-bit constructions, process music, acousmatic composition, and post-techno beat manipulations. He found the requirement to make a new, complete piece every day an exhilarating challenge, and reveled in the constant variety of ideas the project embraced. This project began as a challenge to compose more, and ended up as an audio diary of the past year. Continue reading
