Exploring Space through Music – a Kickstarter project

od_samplingspace_patch_6colorlogo.jpgDan Reus and his team want to help you explore space through music. They’re going to launch a small satellite that will turn information about its motion, the Earth’s cloud cover and sunlight, and the dramatic temperatures in orbit into data to be sent back to the ground. Here they’ll turn that data into sounds that you can turn into music to share with your friends, and they’ll let artists, educators, musicians and researchers use their data to create anything they like.

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
