Net_Music_Weekly: Andrea Polli

polli.jpgAndrea Polli is a digital media artist living in New York City. Her current works are hybrid (art/science) collaborations with atmospheric scientists to develop systems for understanding storm and climate data through sound – a process called sonification. Recent collaborations include: Atmospherics/Weather Works, a spatialized sonification of highly detailed models of storms that devastated the New York area; Heat and the Heartbeat of the City, a series of sonifications of actual and projected climate in Central Park, the heart of New York City and one of the world’s first locations for climate monitoring (a Turbulence Commission); and N., a real-time multi-channel sonification and visualization of weather in the Arctic.

Replay Marclay [au Melbourne]

marclay.jpgReplay Marclay :: until February 3, 2008 :: Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Federation Square, Flinders Street, Melbourne Australia.

Mr. Resistor

mr_resistor.jpgMr. Resistor is an innovative class in which students are taught how to create musical instruments from found electronics and other objects. Armed with two toy robots named Freddy and Teddy, a violin with a bow made out of cassette tape, and a synthesizer assembled from a 1960s electric guessing game, last weekend students at Parsons the New School for Design took to the stage to perform rock songs they created out of these and other found objects.

The performance took place at The Openhouse in SoHo and was born out of a burgeoning DIY music movement where artists take the debris of everyday life, for example an amp made from a Ritz cracker box and instruments made from Gameboys, irons and electronic toys, and turn them into musical instruments to play at events such as Handmade Music Night and Music for People and Thingamajigs.

An Encyclopedia of Radio Waves

radio_bubbles_bluetooth2.jpgIn this project called “the bubbles of radio” – created at AHO in a research-driven course called Tangible interactions – Ingeborg Marie Dehs Thomas uses critical, visual design as a way of exploring the perception of many kinds of electromagnetic fields. The project answered the question: “How can we use the increasingly radio-saturated landscape for creative or functional purposes?”

Inspired by Hertzian Tales by Dunne and Raby as well as other projects including Cell Phone Disco, Ingeborg explored many critical design products or services that would engage with the landscape of radio. Continue reading
