Net_Music_Weekly: Locustream Promenade

promenade.jpgLocustream Promenade — @ Festival MIMI, July 1-14, 2010, Marseille, Iles du Frioul, France — is a sound art installation composed of sonic beams (10 parabolic dishes equipped with sound speakers and small computers). The parabolas are suspended in the public space in such a way that a visitor only hears the sound from the beam when he or she is directly underneath it. Each beam plays a different stream from the Locustream project. The live streamed sounds are soundscapes coming from remote locations through the Internet. The space where the paraboles are hung is virtually connected to geo-distant spaces. By moving from one beam to another the audience walks through audio windows opening out onto a worldwide soundscape. Invited to take part in this experience the listener becomes conscious his or her immediate surroundings in a new way, perception of the local audio environment is modified. Continue reading
