Call for Projects: Mobile Audio Fest [fr France]

audio_mobile_fest2014.pngLocus Sonus/e-topie Mobile Audio Fest :: October 2015 :: Aix en Provence / Marseille – France :: Call for Projects – Deadline: December 7, 2014 at midnight.

Mobile Audio Fest is a presentation of audio artworks in which mobility is central. The fest will be organized as a series of ‘rendezvous’, each specifically adapted to a piece. These RVs might be online, in the street, on the radio, in a concert hall; they might involve downloading an app, walking with headphones, sleeping out in a tent or driving in a car. The Mobile Audio Fest is presented in continuum with Locus Sonus’ research program Audio Mobility. The 2013-14 program resulted in essentially theoretical and documentary material, presented during the Locus Sonus Symposium #8 held in April 2014. Continue reading

Location-Aware App for music in the downtown D.C. Mall

gps.jpgWashington, D.C.-based band Bluebrain’s new album dropped yesterday, Friday, May 29, 2011, but not in the way one might think. It is available on iTunes, but not in MP3 form — rather as a location-aware app that only works within the stretch of park in downtown D.C. called the Mall.

“The music changes and evolves based on your chosen path within the park,” says Ryan Holladay, one half of the band. (His brother, Hays, makes up the other half of the outfit.) “To do this, the app uses the phone’s built-in GPS capabilities.” The app features a map of the Mall that shows what locations are tagged with sound.

The album, titled The National Mall, contains about three hours of music that the brothers composed while traipsing around the area. “It was certainly the most amount of exercise I’ve ever gotten while making an album,” Holladay says.

The disc will not be available for standard download as a musical piece, since it will only work when one is standing in the Mall.

Net_Music_Weekly: Moori – Audience Participatory Performance

moori.pngMoori: Audience Participatory Performance :: May 14, 2011; 9:00 pm + May 20, 2011; 7:00 pm :: Barkroom, Parsons, 2 W. 13th St. Ground Floor (corner of 5th Ave), New York, NY.

Moori, by Haeyoung Kim, is an interactive audience participatory audio-visual performance. By incorporating multiple modes of messaging on a mobile phone, users tell their stories to guided questions by the performer. User data is processed to generate algorithmic audio and visuals while creating a larger narrative. This collaboration creates dialog among the performer and audience members and suggests new possibilities that can exist through the combination of algorithmic animation, audio and language.

UrbanRemix: Call for Participation [us NYC]

UrbanRemix is a collaborative and locative sound project developed by Jason Freeman, Carl DiSalvo, Michael Nitsche, and many of our students at Georgia Tech. Our goal in developing UrbanRemix was to design a platform and series of events that would enable participants to develop and express the acoustic identity of their communities, and enable participants to explore and experience the soundscapes of the city in a novel fashion.

The UrbanRemix platform consists of a mobile phone system and web interface for recording, browsing, and mixing audio. It allows users to document and explore the obvious, neglected, private or public, even secret sounds of the urban environment. Continue reading

Location-based Mobile Music Apps

The Location-Based Mobile Music App Explosion, A Survey by Antony Bruno, Denver :: March 25, 2011 :: thanks to billboard.biz

Adding location awareness to music apps is fast becoming a major mobile trend, as is evident by a rash of new mobile music apps hitting app stores of late.

Use of location technology is taking many forms. Many, if not most, are designed to let users tag a location with a song. The result can be a localized, crowdsourced playlist, add context to the discovery of a new song or even be used as a way to find concerts and live shows. Other apps flip it around a bit by letting users in the same area determine what the venue should play.

Here are some of the apps available today that blend music with location:

Live Stage: Nancy Garcia [us Miami]

Nancy Garcia :: April 9 – June 9, 2011 :: Opening: April 9; 7:00 – 10:00 pm :: Bas Fisher Invitational, 180 NE 39th Street, Suite 210, Miami, Florida.

Nancy Garcia’s interdisciplinary practice incorporates choreography, music/sound, video, performance, image making, and new media. Often slinging the viewer to the edges of performative events, Garcia draws attention to the exultant body, considering it as a site as well as a vehicle for sound and movement. For her first solo exhibition in Miami, Garcia shows a new body of work incorporating photography, a new video entitled Power Trio, and a concept audio compilation, Lover’s Alarm Clock, for which she asked artist friends to “create a sound you want your lover/s to wake up to.” Each track will be downloadable and sharable as a smartphone ringtone at www.loversalarmclock.com, and be available for listening in the gallery.
