Radius Episode 57: Amanda Gutiérrez [us Chicago, IL]

radius.jpgRadius Episode 57: Giants Are Sleeping (00:00*) by Amanda Gutiérrez :: Installation and Broadcast from Comfort Station, Logan Square, Chicago :: November 29, 2014, 7:00 – 10:00 pm (CST).

Giants Are Sleeping aims to reflect the identity, transformation, and ownership of one Chicago electrical substation. Exploring the relationship between human memory and architecture, the installation pairs an interview with Kenneth Corrigan, a bookseller who inhabited the abandoned electrical substation in 1984, with a charcoal animation that uses substation photo archives as its main reference. Drawing techniques are the vehicle to convey symbolic connections that link the historical aspects of these buildings, while the radio becomes the narrative’s voice over. Continue reading

Mendi+Keith Obadike and Sounding Race in America

m_k_portraitnew.jpgSeveral years ago — after working on media art, myths, songs about invisible networks and imaginary places — Mendi+Keith Obadike started a series of sound art projects about America, Sounding Race in America. In making these public sound artworks about the US, they asked themselves questions about funk, austerity, debt and responsibility, aesthetics, and inheritance. They also attempt to reckon with data, which orders so much of our lives with its presence or absence.

They are interested in how data might be understood differently once sonified or made musical. They want to explore what kinds of codes are embedded in the architecture of American culture. More here.

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 Commission: “Grow Old” by Jason Freeman

grow_old.jpgTurbulence Commission: Grow Old by Jason Freeman:

Why can’t music grow old with us?

Grow Old is a streaming EP that reflects upon the malleability of digital audio in a cloud-based musical world. The music, regenerated daily by a simple computer program, changes subtly from one day to the next and more dramatically over the course of weeks, months, and years. So just as we constantly bring new perspectives and experiences to the music we hear, the music itself also changes over time. The web site includes the current version of each of the EP’s four tracks, extensive notes on each track, the computer source code used to generate each track, and subscription links to automatically receive new versions as a podcast.

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.
