Net_Music_Weekly: Weather Scores & Sculptures

hurricane_noel_sculpture.jpgNathalie Miebach is a Boston-based artist who translates weather data into complex sculptures and musical scores.

“Recently, I have begun translating weather data collected in cities into musical scores, which are then translated into sculptures as well as being a source for collaboration with musicians. These pieces are not only devices that map meteorological conditions of a specific time and place, but are also functional musical scores to be played by musicians. While musicians have freedom to interpret, they are asked not to change the essential relationship of the notes to ensure that what is still heard is indeed the meteorological relationship of weather data.” (Scroll down for the Call for Composers.)

Neuroplanets

neuro_pic_1.jpgNeuroplanets — Conceived and directed by Novi_sad with original audio compositions from BJ Nilsen | Sweden, Daniel Menche | U.S.A, Francisco López | Spain and Mika Vainio | Finland.

Neuroplanets is an audio project which explores the aesthetics of information on sound. Initially, I worked in commissioned tracks from other artists, by transmitting on them sound analysis results from extremely rare sonic phenomena in other planets. After that, I manipulated these tracks by applying on them numerical/quantitative data and statistical elements from Neurosciences research in serious diseases. My aim was to ‘visualize’ on sound the diseases characteristics and impact on human nature. Continue reading

CERN fuses art with science

full_a.jpgArt and Sub-Atomic Particles Collide at European Organization for Nuclear Research :: Thanks to artdaily.org

“GENEVA (REUTERS).- CERN, focus of research into the Big Bang and what makes the universe tick, on Thursday announced a new program — fusing science with art to encourage painting and music inspired by the wonders of the cosmos.

“Or more prosaically a “policy of engaging with the arts” that will involve giving the European nuclear research centre’s seal of approval for cultural projects influenced by the particle physics at the heart of its work.

“”The arts and science are inextricably linked; both are ways of exploring our existence, what it is to be human and what is our place in the universe,” said CERN director general Rolf Heuer, a German physicist and classical music fan.” Continue reading

Calabi Portal Project RFQ

Calabi Portal Projecta laboratory for ideas and the imagination :: Call for Proposals — No Deadline.

This competition is open to visionary designers, artists, architects, and scientists, and any collaborative combination. All designs will be theoretical. No background or experience in engineering, construction, or actual fabrication materials is required as the structure will be self-generating and assembling. The challenge is to conceive of the possibilities of an architectural visualization of 10 dimensional space incorporating the six dimensional Calabi-Yau manifold. The proposed structure is to take the form of what we loosely describe as a “Tower”, and is open to interpretation. It may also contain or emanate light and sound.

See website for more information. Sponsored by the Multiverse Research Institute.

Live Stage: Picturing Science [uk Richmond upon Thames, London]

andydunn.jpgPicturing Science – a new open exhibition which examines the collision between two harmonious and contrasting fields of symbolic representation, Art and Science :: starting on December 4, 2010 and continuing until February 26, 2010 :: at the Riverside Gallery, Richmond, UK :: Free admission ::

Scientists use an abstract language of signs to visualise and explain the invisible forces, relationships and processes which make up our world. Artists similarly create images to transmit and analyse meaning. What happens when these two systems of representation collide, intersect and contaminate one another? Continue reading
