Noise, Noise and Wide Noise

traffic-noise.gifAs Andrea Gaggioli writes in the Positive Technology Journal, In addition of being very unpleasant and harmful for our hearing system, noise can have negative impact on general health. For example, Swedish researchers have found that the exposure to even relatively low levels of noise may increase increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attack and high blood pressure.

WideTag, a California Company, has developed an iPhone/iPod touch application – WideNoise – that allows the user to monitor the noise level in the space surrounding her. The noise data are collected and displayed on an online map.

BronxRhymes Uses Locality, Maps to Track History of Hip-Hop

BronxRhymes (a Turbulence Commission) is an attempt to raise awareness of the history of hip-hop in the Bronx, the northwestern borough of New York City where the musical style is thought to have originated. The history of hip-hop is illustrated through rhymes and plotted on an online map.

The creators specifically set out to create a connection between the physical, digital and mobile planes. The website features a map of the Bronx and an archive of contributed rhymes. They then put up posters near the physical locations marked on the online map, describing the location’s relevance to hip-hip history in a rhyme. The posters also challenged passersby to respond via SMS with their own rhymes about the location, the people who made it famous, or hip-hop in general. The project captures the battle tradition of hip-hop, while informing the community through multiple mediums…” Continue reading BronxRhymes Uses Locality, Maps to Track History of Hip-Hop by Megan Taylor, PBS-MediaShift.

Cheryl L’Hirondelle Sings the Landscape [ca Vancouver]

songlines.jpgCheryl L’Hirondelle nikamon ohci askiy (songs because of the land) :: until February 2009 :: Vancouver, B.C.

This project explores the relationship between sound, space and identity as experienced through a cree worldview. By creating a “performative audio map”, L’Hirondelle will negotiate a journey through new territory, developing a nomadic relationship with the land. Her actions/singing will be in direct response to her encounters within the territory – the physical environment she finds herself in and its inhabitants.

During the month of December, the artist will make daily journeys throughout Vancouver and “sing” the landscape she encounters. These encounters will be captured by mobile phone by the artist and whatever other technologies are made available by participating viewers/audience (video, photo, audio). Continue reading

The website displays the artists and locations along with all the submitted rhymes elevating the most recent submission. Eventually, visitors to the website will be able to rate existing rhymes, and add their own. Continue reading

Cyborgorganism – Open Cities [br Sao Paulo]

scie.jpgA10LAB & SCIE PROTOCOL are invited to the MobilFest III – Conference on Cyborgorganism – Open CitiesElectromagnetic Spectrum Research performance by THE NOISER :: November 14-17, 2008 :: Sao Paulo, Brazil.

“The Farther we emerge from the inner city, the more political the atmosphere becomes. We reach the docks, the inland harbors, the warehouses, the poor neighborhoods, the scattered refuges of wretchedness: the outskirts. Outskirts are the state of emergency of a city, the terrain on which incessantly rages the great decisive battle between town and country. It is nowhere more bitter between Marseilles and the provençal landscape. It is the hand-to-hand fight telegraph poles against agaves, barbed wire against thorny palms, the miasmas of stinking corridors against the damp gloom under the plane trees in brooding squares, short-winded outside staircases against the mighty hills.

Mobile Music in Decline?

econ1.jpgMobile Music In Decline — What’s The Problem? The big questions at the mobile music panel at last month’s EconMusic conference: why is mobile music in decline and what will an effective business in this sector look like?

Tom McLennan, Head of Music for Mobile Internet and Content Services, Vodafone UK, and Julian Zmood, Head of Business Development, Music, O2, joined the panel that was moderated by Mark Mulligan, VP and Research Director, JupiterResearch.
