From Rob at gigdoggy: The first concert for the deaf to be held in Toronto will take place on the 5th of March. Some of the band members that are going to play the gig are students a Ryerson University and have developed a chair filled with speakers and vibrating devices that communicate music via vibrations to the people sitting in the chair. Results apparently are amazing and deaf people are said to have experienced ‘the feeling of music’ for the very first time in their lives.

Ryerson University’s Centre of Learning Technology and the Science of Music, Auditory Research and Technology (SMART) Lab have been working on the Alternative Sensory Information Displays (ASID) project to develop a ‘musical chair’ precisely made to induce vibrant emotions in deaf people.

Goodbye Max Neuhaus (1939-2009)

max-neuhausthumbnail.jpgThis week marked the passing of a true visionary of contemporary art, Max Neuhaus. Originally an accomplished solo percussionist who toured with Boulez and Stockhausen, in the late 1960’s Neuhaus moved his practice out of the concert hall and into the public sphere, setting up numerous sound-based installations in and around New York City.

One of his most famous installations is Times Square, a work consisting of a large speaker emitting a resonating drone from beneath a traffic island grate in the heart of the crossroads. The work is remarkable for its ability to carve out a meditative sonic chamber amid the clamor and saturation of its surroundings. Continue reading
