halsey_burgund.jpgHalsey Burgund, Scapes :: July 13, 2010 – November 4, 2010 :: deCordova, 51 Sandy Pond Rd, Lincoln, Massachusetts.

Halsey Burgund is a musician and sound artist who lives and works in Bedford, MA. Burgund’s projects are collaborative and provide participants with an active role in content creation. Part of generation Wiki and the democratization of knowledge, Burgund uses open source platforms, GPS technology, and interactivity to create musical scores from participants’ spoken words that continuously evolve in real-time. Scapes, Burgund’s project for PLATFORM 3, creates a two-way audio experience for museum visitors influenced significantly by their physical location on deCordova grounds. Participants will use handheld wireless devices and headphones to listen to audio and also to make their own recordings which will be immediately assimilated into the piece for everyone to hear. Organized by former Koch Curatorial Fellow Nina Gara Bozicnik and current Koch Curatorial Fellow Lexi Lee, the exhibition will be accompanied by a full-color brochure.

Jim Andrews on Flash Works by Hans Reichel

reichel6.gifRead Jim Andrews’ review of Hans Reichel’s Suite of 12 Interactive Audio Flash Works at

Hans Reichel (1949) is a German improvisational guitarist, experimental luthier, inventor, and type designer.” So saith Wikipedia so you know the statement has passed many semi-clueless scrutinies to emerge supported, probably not without revision. But, yes, he is all that and more. The ‘more’ part includes, which we shall look at… is a really cool trip through Reichel’s work as someone who makes fantastic stringed instruments (guitars, of a sort, primarily) and plays them, also.

But there are other excursions as well. Read more here., Andrews says, is one of the best hypermedia works of its kind that I’ve ever experienced.

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
