NMR Commission: “Trace Aureity” by Adam Nash

trace_aureity_logo_300×95.jpgTrace Aureity by Adam Nash (aka Adam Ramona) [Needs Second Life account and client (free)] – Trace Aureity is an interactive, immersive, audiovisual sculpture located in the 3-D synthetic world Second Life. There are eighty-eight manipulated field recordings — from city streets, birdsong, to talkback radio — and ninety-six nested rotating objects densely arranged in a three dimensional grid. Avatars, either solo or in groups, generate sounds by moving through the installation. Some of the innermost nested objects, colored red, also spawn glowing spheres which fly out and bounce around inside the work, triggering sounds as they pass through other objects. Because the playable space is so dense, players are rewarded by slowing down their movements as much as possible, since even miniscule movements create differences in sonic output. Continue reading

Live Stage: The Art of Field Recording [us NYC]

derek_holzer_02.jpgSoundTransit: The Art of Field Recording :: Derek Holzer :: April 21-22, 2010; 6:30 – 9:30 pm :: Harvestworks, 596 Broadway, Suite 602, NYC.

Field recording, or phonography, is the art of recording sounds as they are found “in situ”, rather than those created in a studio or concert hall. There are as many ways of approaching field recording as there are field recordists, with interests ranging from recordings of natural or urban environments to improvised situations or soundwalks to the resonance of solid objects or the Earth’s atmosphere.

The first session of this workshop provides a theoretical introduction to the various microphone techniques and recording strategies used for field recording, as well as special tools which allow phenomenon such as physical motion, electromagnetic waves and light can also be converted into sound. This will be followed by a night-time recording excursion into the city. Continue reading

m_00c6c73efd2104c40a98cf0f81baedbd.jpgChicago Phonography on Something Else :: hosted by Philip von Zweck :: on WLUW 88.7FM :: Sunday, January 17, 2010 at 10:00pm to Monday, January 18, 2010 at 2:00am :: live stream: http://amber.streamguys.com:4100/stream.mp3

Something Else is Chicago’s longest running radio show devoted to seldom-heard and experimental, avant-garde musics, sound art, works of long duration (no excerpts!), and other less classifiable things that just don’t have an outlet. Chicago Phonography is a collective of artists interested in promoting creative activity in listening by broadcasting unprocessed field recordings as an ensemble in a context of live improvisation.

Reblogged Right Here, Right Now – HC Gilje’s Networks of Specificity

Posted by Mitchell Whitelaw on Teeming Void: This essay was commissioned by Hordaland Kunstsenter in Bergen, Norway, to coincide with HC Gilje’s solo exhibition blink (video below). It looks at Gilje’s recent work – which spans audiovisual installation, performance, hardware, and networked forms – through the notion of specificity (developed earlier here).

The show will include large screen projections of videos recorded at the edge of Europe: satellites, radars and surveillance patrols, brutalist architecture, informal human settlements, geological imagery of mountains and caves, steaming volcanic craters, insect hunters and their prey… Continue reading

Live Stage: urban sound stories [at Vienna]

kunst2.jpgurban sound stories, curated by Gruenrekorder; online at kunstradio and Gruenrekorder :: on air @ Ö1 Kunstradio, Sundays 11:03 – 11:45 pm (CET).

urban sound stories is a five-part series of sounds and photographs as soundscapes of European cities. The artists participating in this “curated by”project were selected by Gruenrekorder, a German based organization and label for phonography, field recording and soundscape.

Five sound artists — Simon Whetham, Tobias Bolt, Eric Cordier, Lasse-Marc Riek and Roland Etzin — explore eight places each, in five different cities, using the means of phonography and photography. The exploration of artificial and natural space within the city takes place within the same space of time. Continue reading

Live Stage: Phonographers Perform [us Cambridge, MA]

The New England Phonographers Union is a fluid congregation of sound artists and field recordists who work with untreated and unprocessed recordings of the rich and varied sounds around them. Through the exploration and documentation of urban and rural public spaces, sound objects and events, the Union captures auditory phenomena otherwise lost, and re-interpret the particularity of individual places as a newly idealized sonic environment.

“Freesound” by Rob Myers

p_3066.jpgFreesound by Rob Myers, Furtherfield.org: “The Freesound Project web site is a Free Culture sound repository similar to OpenClipArt for illustration, Project Gutenberg for text or the Prelinger Archive for film. Launched in May 2005 in Barcelona by the Music Technology Group of Pompeu Fabra University, it quickly attracted contributors and an audience from around the world.

Freesound is a sound repository rather than a music or audio repository. It contains samples of noises rather than of music or spoken word recordings. If you do want music there are several excellent music sites elsewhere on the Internet, from an artistic point of view notably Sal Randolph’s OpSound. But these focus on completed tracks rather than raw sound materials, and are limited to music. Freesound has no such limitation. Continue reading
