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.

Turbulence Commission: “Panemoticon” by Ali Miharbi and John Priestley

Turbulence Commission: Panemoticon by Ali Miharbi and John Priestley [Needs Firefox (16 or later recommended), headphones/speakers, mouse/trackpad]:

We know how you feel. Panemoticon observes your behavior, makes a few inferences about your emotional state, and plays music to match your mood. Your mouse/trackpad use says a lot about your energy level, confidence, and perceived control over your environment. Panemoticon tracks and analyzes these data to create an image of your mood, and then generates music, adjusting properties such as tonality (major/minor), harmonic & rhythmic complexity, tempo, timbre, and proximity. Collective mood is calculated for all Panemoticon users on a given site. Continue reading

Contribute to Another Year of Turbulence!

Dear Friends,

We’re half-way through our end of year fundraiser. Please make a donation (tax-deductible for US residents) before December 31.

Now embarking on its 32nd year, New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. — an independent not-for-profit organization founded in New York City — continues to agitate the institutional art world through its trailblazing projects, including New American Radio (1987-1998), Turbulence.org (1996-), Networked _ Performance (2004-), Networked _ Music _ Review (2007-), and Networked: a (networked _ book) about (networked _ art) (2009-).

Since 1981, NRPA has commissioned more than 500 works by more than 400 artists, many of them just beginning their careers. The Turbulence.org archive spans a crucial 15-year period of exploration and innovation in digital, networked environments, ranging from hypertext to information visualization, blogs to social networks, and interactive dance/musical compositions to 3-D architecture.

Here’s what Régine Debatty and Timothy Murray have said about Turbulence.org:

“Turbulence because they’ve been consistently commissioning net.art … and because they have a great blog called Networked_Performance that documents better (much better) than me the calls, essays and events that interest the whole new media art community.” Régine Debatty, we-make-money-not-art, 2006

“Turbulence … has developed into a natural archive of Internet art, housing the largest representation of American art produced as networked art. Indeed, no other on-line exhibition project has played such an influential and lasting role.” Timothy Murray, The Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art, 2011

Please help us keep doing what we’re doing by making a donation via PayPal on http://turbulence.org or by sending a check to:

New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc.
124 Bourne Street
Roslindale, MA 02131

Thank you.

We wish you all a peaceful and prosperous 2012.

Warmly,

Jo and Helen

“Internet Topography” by art of failure

Internet Topography 2011 by art of failure.

In Internet Topography, 50Hz audio signals are sent from the exhibition space to Tokyo, then returned within the installation space where we can listen to it. The transmission errors that occur during these streamings are analyzed and then considered as a potential and incomplete layout of the network topography. Similar to a landscape, this digital topography proves to be an unstable organization of patterns, shapes and outlines opening the way to multiple mental representations. This imaginary scope is made perceptible trough an immersive sound and light installation.
