Open Web Award 2011

award.jpgOpen Web Award 2011 :: transmediale in collaboration with Mozilla have announced the creation of the new Open Web Award 2011, a special third platform for creative excellence alongside the transmediale Award 2011 and the Vilém Flusser Theory Award 2011.

The transmediale Open Web Award is a new platform for radical, creative and innovative art works and projects that: are on the web and about the web; that use open source, free, libre or other non-proprietary technology (may they be soft- or hardware); and that incite participation

They can be critical, celebratory or both. Projects should have the potential to demonstrate and/or objectively critique the potential of open web issues, and those employing the creative use of HTML5 and other developing ‘open’ technologies will be given specific consideration. The point is to play with both the idea and materiality of the (open) web in ways that spark new thinking and practice. Continue reading

“Freesound” by Rob Myers

p_3066.jpgFreesound by Rob Myers, “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
