“Echologue” by Orkan Telhan

echologue_ars_1_t.jpgEchologue, by Orkan Telhan, is a public interface for sensing and displaying socio-cultural characteristics of a place based on its sonic features. The goal is to build a medium that can reflect its surroundings like a smart mirror, highlight the salient details and patterns in the environment and contribute to our understanding of the perception of social places. The interface senses ambient sound, records deliberate user input and displays a visualization of the activity in that space as its output.

The design explores the utility of sound for envisioning new social, cultural and entertainment uses of public places and help us shape our relationships with each other with new social interfaces embedded in urban settings. Continue reading

The Ghost Station [ca Toronto]

ghoststation.jpgThe Ghost Station :: Kristen Roos :: September 29, 2007 :: Lower Bay TTC Station: Installation entrance at Cumberland St.

Lower Bay Station, Toronto’s ghost station, is used as a vessel to contain sounds that are within and below the threshold of human hearing – infrasound and tactile sound – where sound is felt rather than heard. Low frequencies created by cars and subways are contributors to the cacophony of infrasonic noise that exists deep below the rumbling of the city. These tactile sounds have also been associated with paranormal activity and ghost sightings. Kristen Roos’ audio art is informed by aspects of acoustic ecology, radio art and phonography.

Touch

touch_logo3.gifTouch is a research project that investigates Near Field Communication (NFC), a technology that enables connections between mobile phones and physical things. Touch is not about music or anything musical at this point. Based at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design in Norway, this project is developing applications and services that enable people to interact with everyday objects and situations through their mobile devices. There are musical potentials here.

Touch consists of an inter-disciplinary team involved in social and cultural inquiry, interaction/industrial design, rapid prototyping, software, testing and exhibitions.

Net_Music_Weekly: The Sound of Touch

soundpaint_zoom.jpgThe Sound of Touch, by David Merrill and Hayes Raffle (2007), is a new instrument for real-time capture and sensitive physical stimulation of sound samples using digital convolution. Their hand-held wand can be used to record sound and then playback the recording by brushing, scraping, striking or otherwise physically manipulating the wand against physical objects. During playback, the recorded sound is continuously filtered by the acoustic interaction of the wand and the material being touched. A texture kit allows for convenient acoustic exploration of a range of materials. Continue reading
