‘TranSonic’ Perception in Interactive ChoreoSonic Performance Practice

‘TranSonic’ Perception in Interactive ChoreoSonic Performance Practice by Stan Wijnans, Body, Space & Technology Journal, Vol 10 Number 2:

This paper reflects on the creation and perception of an interactive spatial ChoreoSonic1 performance environment. The term ‘Transonic Perception’ is introduced to describe the intimate bodily experience of the dancer who creates the 3D spatial sonic environment within the technologically enhanced environment. I will discuss conceptual issues that outline a synchronicity between the spatial elements of dance movement and 3D spatial sound perception that can be used artistically in the creative process. The discussion focuses specifically on the human perception of the visual, tactical and auditory space in the digitally enhanced performance environment.

“Mountain Ghosts” by Halsey Burgund

Mountain Ghosts by Halsey Burgund :: until mid-November :: Galleries of Contemporary Art, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.

Mountain Ghosts is a site-specific sound art installation that infuses the entire University of Colorado / Colorado Springs campus with a location-based layer of audio created collectively by the artist and participants. Building on Burgund’s interest in systems, collected voices, and participation, Mountain Ghosts explores sound as fundamental to our experiences of space, place and history. Participants use a custom smartphone app to make audio recordings that the Mountain Ghosts system then codes by location and immediately assimilates into a collective databank for other visitors to access.

“Immersion Into Noise” by Joseph Nechvatal

Immersion Into Noise by Joseph Nechvatal, Open Humanities Press:

The noise factor is the ratio of signal to noise of an input signal to that of the output signal. Noise can block or interfere with the meaning of a message in both human and electronic communication. But in Information Theory, noise is still considered to be information.

By refining the definition of noise as that which addresses us outside of our preferred comfort zone, Joseph Nechvatal’s Immersion Into Noise investigates multiple aspects of cultural noise by applying the audio understanding of noise to the visual, architectural and cognitive domains. Nechvatal expands and extends our understanding of the function of cultural noise by taking the reader through the immersive and phenomenal aspects of noise into algorithmic and network contexts, beginning with his experience in the Abside of the Grotte de Lascaux.

Live Stage: 8 Silences [online]

Radius, Episode 04: 8 Silences by Art of Failure :: April 9 and April 16 at 8:00 pm (CST) :: online.

8 Silences (part of the Laps series) offers a sensible representation of Internet by broadcasting audio streams that travel and reverberate trough the web. Initially silents, the streams progressively incorporate an infinity of transformations or “errors” that modify the sound as it circulates on the network. These alterations are comparable to a form of erosion caused by the network space – they are a key to allow different mental representations of this digital topography. Presented as a live performance, 8 silences is a sound immersion in the heart of data flows.

Episode 04 presents a special mobile broadcast of 8 Silences from Urbana, IL, USA as part of the art exhibition Bricoleurs at the Independent Media Center in association with the 2011 Boneyard Arts Festival. Continue reading

On the History of Appropriative Collage

VARIATIONS #6. The Library, a podcast series by Jon Leidecker on the history of appropriative collage RWM MACBA:

In the sixth episode of this series of podcasts, we encounter the establishment of sound libraries, collections explicitly curated for further use: sound objects presented as authorless, unfinished ingredients. Though some libraries contain newly commissioned generic sounds, specifically designed for maximum flexibility, the most widely used sounds are often sourced from commercial recordings, freed from their original context to propagate across dozens to hundreds of songs. From presets for digital samplers to data CD ROMs to hip-hop battle records, sounds increasingly detach from their sources, used less as references to any original moment, and more as objects in a continuous public domain.
