Live Stage: Conference on Listening

listening.jpgThe American Society for Cybernetics has great pleasure in announcing a conversational conference on the theme of LISTENING :: August 9 to August 15, 2011 :: Richmond, Indiana. USA :: Sign up deadline: May 10, 2011 ::

We regard listening as the key act that turns talking into conversation. However, we use these words metaphorically, and not just literally: we do not mean to concentrate on the aural senses, but on the idea that it is the recipient who gives meaning to what they hear. This is how they release the potential in a statement made by another into conversation, whether the conversation is in words, acts, gestures, or indeed any other medium of communication. This can lead to the development of understanding of the other so important in human relations (perhaps specially in fields such as psycho-therapy, management, education and music).

Urgent Call for Sound Works [uk London]

soundfjord.jpgSoundFjord is urgently looking for sound works for a curated evening of sound (Museums at Nights at ICA) in May. They are interested in works that discuss ‘The Sublimated Landscape’: the saturation of the sonic (and visual field), as well as sonic works that consider ‘Sonic Topology’ – works that are dense, layered, feature reiteration and works that construct or reconfigure space.

Send your STEREO WAV/AIFF files or AV work (HD where possible) with a bio for the artist and paragraph about the work (include title and duration) to info[at]soundfjord.org.uk ASAP. Files and DVDs will be accepted until 6th May 2011. Please send to the address below:

Sound Monolith in water

Sound Monolith – Resonance in Water from Andrew Roberts on Vimeo.

This video is a demonstration of the Sound Monolith (2009) by Andre Roberts, demonstrating a variety of its resonant frequencies in water. The installation is at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 37 South Wabash Avenue, Chicago, Illinois, 60603.

The Sound Monolith is a physical visual representation of sound as it shows us the waves around us we cannot normally see. It uses water as a medium to show us resonant patterns.

UrbanRemix: Call for Participation [us NYC]

UrbanRemix is a collaborative and locative sound project developed by Jason Freeman, Carl DiSalvo, Michael Nitsche, and many of our students at Georgia Tech. Our goal in developing UrbanRemix was to design a platform and series of events that would enable participants to develop and express the acoustic identity of their communities, and enable participants to explore and experience the soundscapes of the city in a novel fashion.

The UrbanRemix platform consists of a mobile phone system and web interface for recording, browsing, and mixing audio. It allows users to document and explore the obvious, neglected, private or public, even secret sounds of the urban environment. Continue reading

Location-based Mobile Music Apps

The Location-Based Mobile Music App Explosion, A Survey by Antony Bruno, Denver :: March 25, 2011 :: thanks to billboard.biz

Adding location awareness to music apps is fast becoming a major mobile trend, as is evident by a rash of new mobile music apps hitting app stores of late.

Use of location technology is taking many forms. Many, if not most, are designed to let users tag a location with a song. The result can be a localized, crowdsourced playlist, add context to the discovery of a new song or even be used as a way to find concerts and live shows. Other apps flip it around a bit by letting users in the same area determine what the venue should play.

Here are some of the apps available today that blend music with location:

Sewing Machine Orchestra

Sewing Machine Orchestra

Sewing Machine Orchestra from Martin Messier on Vimeo.

Eight old Singer sewing machines in a row are the musicians of the Sewing Machine Orchestra made by one of the two men behind La Chambre des Machines, Martin Messier. The sounds we hear are all created by the sewing machines. Apart from the sound this installation makes, the image of these classic machines put in a clean, modern environment is wonderful, and triggers the viewers memory and imagination.
