Muon by Moving Brands

muon.jpg

Muon–an audio responsive installation–is a two metre tall speaker system made of super-formed aluminium. Remarkably reflective, these sound sculptures were created by the advanced research centre of KEF, the British-based world leader in sound technology and Ross Lovegrove, considered one of the most innovative designers of the 21st century. The name Muon is inspired by physics, an elementary particle with a negative electric charge.

The concept was to create a liquid experience to engage all the senses. Fluid forms would emanate from the position of each speaker, playing with movement and intensity of light in response to audio triggers. Continue reading

Greek Contemporary Audio Art Panorama in London

sakam.jpgATH-LDN presents a wide panorama of contemporary audio production emerging from Greece across various platforms & venues in London: an aural journey through sound installations, experimental live art performances, independent record label showcases, art-rock performances & actions, audio-visual experiences and radio sessions. An eclectic mix of established and emergent art practitioners who focus on the creative use of both digital and analogue sound, multi-media and other current technologies, while finding inventive ways to perform, communicate and distribute their work. Creative direction & project coordination: Chloe Vaitsou.

One of the events in ATH-LDN is Statistical Harp, an interactive audiovisual installation by Coti & Dimitris Charitos which opens next Monday at E:vent Gallery and will be open from 16 till 29 April. Statistical Harp takes its name from the ancient Aeolic Harp, which was probably the first ever sound installation (6th century B.C.) that was usually located on hilltops and produced sound by the wind vibrating its strings.

Pneumatic Sound Field

dsc_0136.jpgAt DEAF 07: In the installation Pneumatic Sound Field, by Edwin van der Heide, a continuum is being created between rhythmical perception of sound, spatial perception of sound and the perception of pitch. A horizontal plane of pneumatic valves is used to produce wind, pressure and sound. The result is a breathing sound environment above the audience.

Acoustical sound consists of temporary pressure changes traveling through the atmosphere of the air around us. While loudspeakers most often use moving membranes in order to produce these pressure changes in Pneumatic Sound Field compressed air is being used to produce acoustical sound. The compressed air is connected to very fast controllable pneumatic valves that release the pressurized air in the ‘open’ air. This results in a controllable pressure change in the atmosphere around the valve. Because the compressed air has always a higher pressure than the atmosphere not only sound is being produced but also a bit of wind. The result can be seen as wind that contains sound.

Audio Kinematics

kinematics.jpgJost Muxfeldt uses Audio Kinematics to create virtual audio sculptures, utilizing the spatial relations and proportions of a mechanical structure to determine various parameters of a sound composition.

The motion in the current realization is based on the principle of a mobile, a binary tree structure combined with circular motions. Since the motions of the individual nodes are always circular, they can over time be described with a series of sine waves added to each other. The motion of one node is thus described by the amplitude modulation of the sine wave of the parent node. Thus the motion is closely related to one of the most basic principles of audio synthesis.

Mogens Jacobsen: Horbar/Audiobar

hoerbar_3393_s.jpgHorbar/Audiobar is a responsive environment for natural and playful exploration of huge collection of audio art. You can interact with the sounds using a tangible interface based on RFID-tagged bottles. The environment consists of two rooms: A bar-room for shared interaction and a study lounge for more in deep explorations.

Horbar/Audiobar will be premiered at the Museum for Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark. This museum has a huge collection of international audio art which will be accessible at the bar. The installation is part of the exhibition Social_Action – The Audience and the New Media Landscape.

HINGES ON

11_17.jpg

Adaptation, Access, Regulation, Open Source

HINGES ON is an interactive film installation on the informal and formal economies of India’s “ICT capital”, Bangalore. Visitors enter through a sparsly lit sound tunnel, where they are exposed to an audio experience of failed efforts to retrieve information. (The sound works can be downloaded from the site.) Finally, one is released into the room hosting the video installation. Multiple door-shaped screens in the centre of the space serve as projection surfaces for the four simultanous projections. The screens are on hinges and invite the visitors to turn them into the angel required to catch the projection they wish to watch. (You can find information on the themes and issues in the backdrop section). A switch board provides the interface to the speakers featured on video. (In depth documentation of the process including a list of interviewees and the ‘making of switch board, doors and software patches is accessible here!’

Tune Me

tuneme.jpg

Multi Sensorial Radio

Tune Me is an immersive conceptual radio based upon tactile features. The sound and the visual are triggered by “touchy” interfaces. The visitors enter the ellipse-shaped space, immersing themselves in a new world where to listen to the radio waves.

As well as the sound, each channel provides light features as well as vibrating and pulsing experience. When choosing the different FM stations, the overall space changes, defining different moods upon the nature of the different content. News, sport, classical music and international pop. Each of them triggers a different visual experiences, the space vibrates, pulses and interacts with the visitors.

Developed by Line Ulrika Christiansen, Stefano Mirti and Stefano Testa (with Daniele Mancini and Francesca Sassaroli). More pictures by Stefano and Simone. Also part of Touch Me at The Victoria & Albert Museum (London) till August 29th 2005. [blogged by Regine on we-make-money-not]
