Live Stage: "iLib Shakespeare" [online]

Turbulence Commission: iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project) by Scot Gresham-Lancaster and Tim Perkis:

iLib Shakespeare (the perturbed sonnet project) is a social media mashup that uses the dynamic input of users to continuously rewrite a sonnet of William Shakespeare. The user phonetically rhymes a word or short phrase, which is added to the database of variations available to other users. For instance unhappily forsworn can be rhymed as so snappily untorn. Each time the page is loaded, a different selection of user-defined substitutions is used. A transposed midi version of “Lachrimae” or “Seven Tears,” by John Dowland (1563-1626), can be heard as well, with “perturbations” that increase as the sonnet text is modified. Continue reading

Turbulence Spotlight: "MUPS" by Jhave

jhave.jpgTurbulence Spotlight: MUPS by Jhave:

MUPS (MashUPs) is an online sonic mashup engine specifically designed to allow spoken-word poetry mp3s to interweave simultaneously as if a group of performers were speaking together. MUPS has been seeded with MUPS 1260 audio poems from the PennSound archives; it can play up to 32 streams simultaneously. In spite of the playful tone of the introduction, MUPS is intended as a digital augmentation in the study of prosody. As computational analysis advances it is feasible to foresee cultural heritage archives such as PennSound operating as sites where digital tools permit innovative explorations into the evolution of poetics.

Looks Like Music by Yuri Suzuki

Looks Like Music - Mudam 2013 from Yuri Suzuki on Vimeo.

The Looks Like Music project by sound artist and designer Yuri Suzuki features robots that are programmed to follow a black line drawn on white paper. They each respond with specific sounds as they pass over coloured marks laid down across the track by visitors.

The public is invited to actively contribute to the development of the installation in the exhibition space by extending the circuit drawn on paper,” said Suzuki. “Visitors thus participate in the creation of a large-scale artwork and enrich a collectively composed sound piece.”

Radio Receiver as Musical Instrument: an essay

“Radio Music” connects three examples from the history of the potential of the radio receiver as musical instrument, from its early beginnings in the twenties as captured on a comedy record, to formal art experiments in the forties and fifties, to its nostalgic presence in one of the very first song-based pop music collage albums, which heralded the now familiar practice of sampling.
