“Fermentophone” by Joshua Pablo Rosenstock


Fermentophone is a multi-sensory installation in which an algorithmically generated musical composition is performed by living cultures of bacteria and yeast. The installation comprises a series of different vessels containing actively fermenting foodstuffs and beverages, which are wired with electronic sensors. Each colorful, odorous, and edible ferment has its own musical vocabulary which is expressed according to microbial activity.
 The installation was presented at the Hacking Arts festival at the MIT Media Lab.

Turbulence Commission: “WoodEar” by Peter Traub

Turbulence Commission: WoodEar by Peter Traub [Needs download, and Speakers/Headphones]:

Bringing the body of the tree to the network is a natural fit — a tree is a network too: roots sensing and absorbing nutrients, leaves sensing and photosynthesizing sunlight, and phloem and xylem running throughout to carry nutrients across the structure. WoodEar attempts to merge the dynamic qualities of this biological network with the digital network. A series of sensors attached to the tree stream data on the state of its environment — light, temperature, air pressure, and wind. This live data is merged with photos and recordings of the tree’s immediate surroundings into a generative application/installation. By downloading and running the application, anyone can access the live environmental experiences of the tree — one that may be very distant from them, but that still shares the same air, sun, earth, and sky.

Live Stage: Sound­wwwalk Per­for­mance [tr Istanbul]

garnicnig_soundwwwalks_image_1.jpgISEA Istanbul presents Soundwwwalk Performance Panel: in­ves­ti­ga­tions to­wards an Acoustic Ecol­ogy of Net­works and the world wide web as in­ter­face and ma­te­r­ial for live per­for­mance — Chair Per­son: Bern­hard Gar­nic­nig; Pre­sen­ters: Ceci Moss, Jamie Allen, Peter Moos­gaard, Con­stant Dul­laart, Ju­lian Palacz, Joel Holm­berg, Will Schrimshaw :: Sep­tem­ber 17, 2011; 1:00 – 2:30 pm :: Sa­banci Cen­ter Room 7, Sa­banci Cen­ter, Lev­ent.

Com­puter net­works and cities both are so­cial spaces that have emerged as ma­te­r­ial spaces where lives are lead and work gets done. They are su­per­struc­tures for com­mu­ni­ca­tion, net­works of chan­nels where in­for­ma­tion and goods are trans­ferred. Both spaces have their par­tic­u­lar acoustic prop­er­ties and qual­i­ties, and while ex­ten­sive stud­ies of en­vi­ron­men­tal acoustics and the sound­scape of our en­vi­ron­ment have been emerg­ing in the last 40 years, net­work spaces are still con­sid­ered to be spaces with­out sound, acoustics or any sonic prop­er­ties.
