“Akousmaflore” by scenocosme [fr Labège]

anais_flore_web.jpgAkousmaflore: Sensitive and interactive musical plants by scenocosme (Grégory Lasserre & Anaïs met den Ancxt) – Akousmaflore is a garden made with real musical and interactive plants or flowers. Each plant reacts to the human touch of a spectator by a specific sound language. Our aura is hot, electric and invisible. It can act here on the vegetable foliages by offering the experiment of a reactive environment. When the spectators caress the plants, they start to sing. Become sensitive musical instruments, they make it possible to compose a floral orchestration. In our artwork we are create possible hybridizations between plant and digital technology. The plants are natural and alive sensors, sensitive to various energy flows. Digital technologies allow us to do possible relation to plant alive. Continue reading

NMR Commission: “BliK” by Roberto Osorio-Goenaga

blik_300.jpgBliK an interactive installation and networked musical composition method based on collaborative “Web 2.0” principles. The composer / participant types directives / keywords – referencing one of the LEMUR ModBots – into a blog post to create a musical score. The LEMUR ModBots are a set of single-function percussive bots that work as a percussion ensemble. They reside at LEMURplex in Brooklyn, New York. Some are scrapers, some are shakers, some strike different surfaces. They each have their own name, for instance, “bucket” and “shake.” By typing “bucket shake shake shake,” into a blog post, the user causes both bots to improvise algorithmically, with the shake being 3 times more present in the section than the bucket. The user controls the tempo by typing keywords such as ‘fast’, ‘slow’, and ‘medium’. Continue reading

“Billboard” by R. Luke Dubois

billboard.jpgBillboard (2005) – a sound work for iPod (37 minutes) by R. Luke Dubois: “Billboard allows you to get a birds-eye view of the Billboard Hot 100 by listening to all the #1 singles from 1958 through the millennium using a technique I’ve been working on for a couple of years called time-lapse phonography. The 857 songs used to make the piece are analyzed digitally and a spectral average is then derived from the entire song. Just as a long camera exposure will fuse motion into a single image, spectral averaging allows us to look at the average sonority of a piece of music, however long, giving a sort of average timbre of a piece. This gives us a sense of the average key and register of the song, as well as some clues about the production values present at the time the record was made; Continue reading

“Bioluster” by Accelerator Group

bioluster.jpgBioluster is a collaboration of the Accelerator Group. Participants in this project include artists Jite Agbro & Meghan Trainor, programmer Stephen Koch and carpenter Patrick Kerr.

Bioluster is a large-scale tactile interface that offers simple, yet not immediately obvious, methods of triggering different series of sound samples. This unique interface, created with RFID & Flash technology, is paired with materials and shapes that leave the audience with a tugging sense of unwarranted nostalgia for a system that has never existed. This project has grown out of Trainor’s long use and exploration of RFID as an artistic medium to examine our changing physical relationship to computing. Continue reading

LOCUSTREAM

soundmap.jpgOver the last 18 months the Locus Sonus Lab has been focusing on a process which revolves around a network of live audio streams. The audio source for each stream is simply an open microphone which continually uploads to a server – and from there available from anywhere via the WWW – chosen (or given) soundscapes or sound environments, as playable material.

Our intention being to provide a permanent (and somewhat emblematic) resource to tap into as raw material for our artistic experimentation. We have now established a worldwide community of streamers each person being responsible for the installation and maintenance of his mike. Several different art forms have developed from this project: Continue reading
