Oorwonde (Earwound) [uk London]

earwound.jpgOorwonde (Earwound) by Laura Maes :: until April 22, 2012 :: Usurp Art Gallery, 140 Vaughan Road, London HA1 4EB, UK.

Oorwonde is an interactive aural installation in which the visitor becomes a willing ‘patient’ to hear, feel, influence and manipulate the soundtrack of a fictitious operation. Speakers, electro-magnets, vibrator motors and piezoelectric disks entwine with the human body, creating a unique composition and performance. Based on Bernhard Leitner’s philosophy that ‘listening is understood to extend to all parts of the body and sound to touch a deep nerve’, Oorwonde explores the concept of bodily hearing as multiple elements target different body parts. Hearing is no longer restricted to the ears. Continue reading

Interruptions #7: The Beauty in Breathing on Radio Web MACBA

radioweb2.jpgInterruptions #7: The Beauty in Breathing 04.01.2012 (41′ 27”) on Radio Web MACMA :: Curated by Kenneth Goldsmith ::

The Zen Buddhists insist that during meditation the practitioner must focus exclusively on their breath. When stray thoughts enter your mind, you must always go back to your breath. What they mean by this is that if you are breathing, you are alive. What we do every second is something we take for granted. Coming at it from a very different angle, the artists featured in this mix want to make us aware of the same thing: by highlighting our most commonly shared – yet almost invisible – bodily function and using it as the basis for sonic exploration, they reveal something at once cosmic and mundane, that which is right under our nose, but which we somehow ignore. John Cage once said that music is all around us if only we had the ears to hear it. The same can be said by the artists compiled here: breathing is all around us, if only we had the tools to pay attention to it. This compilation is…one small step toward that end.

“Soundw(e)ave” by Christy Matson

soundweave_installation1.jpgFrom The New Materiality by Nathaniel Stern, Furtherfield.org; a review of the exhibition The New Materiality: Digital Dialogues at the Boundaries of Contemporary Craft:

Soundw(e)ave, (Christy Matson’s) piece on show, is a self-referential textile, where the actual sounds of computerized Jacquard looms were used to create woven compositions. Her noisy sound waves were turned into three patterned pieces of fabric, made by hand-operated, computer-assisted and fully automated (Jacquard) looms, respectively – each weave growing progressively denser with the more advanced technologies used in their production. The piece, says Matson, was a huge turning point in her practice; it pointed her towards a kind of digital craftsmanship, where she was better able to place value on the ideas, materials and skillfulness needed to be an artisan across contemporary digital, craft and art domains.

Net_Music_Weekly: Hertzian Rain [us Buffalo]

hertzian_rain.jpgHertzian Rain by Mark Shepard :: February 13, 2011; 3:00 – 5:00 pm :: Burchfield Penney Art Center, 1300 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, New York.

Live sound from multiple sound makers is streamed from a set of wireless transmitters placed at opposing sides of an urban space. These transmitters broadcast these audio streams locally on the same radio frequency to a group of participants wearing wireless headphones tuned to this frequency. Because the transmitters broadcast on the same local frequency, a zone of interference is created where multiple audio streams compete for signal dominance.

Participants carry umbrellas made of electromagnetic field (EMF) shielding fabric that enable them to actively shape the surrounding environment of radio waves. By orienting the umbrella in different ways, one is able to filter the interfering radio signals and select a single audio stream to listen to. Continue reading
