“SHRINE: a Torii Gate” by Benoit Maubrey

benoit_maubrey_shrine.jpgSHRINE: a Torii Gate (where the spirits are more likely to hear your prayers) opens at the Kobe Biennale, Japan on September 19, 2015. It is a public interactive sound sculpture that allows spectators to express themselves and play music and messages directly through it.

200 recycled loudspeakers are mounted on a 4 -meter high Torii Gate structure and connected together. Four people can simultaneously be connected to a 8-channel speakers system that allows them to express themselves directly via a microphone input or their smart phones with Bluetooth technology. At the same time the sculpture amplifies “recycled“ electromagnetic waves (white noise): the low-volume sounds are permanently hearable as a “background” sound that changes throughout the day: this is the “pulse” of the sculpture. Additionally SHRINE can also be used as a sound system for concerts, formal occasions and open-air events.

Blues Speaker [for James Baldwin]

Blues Speaker [for James Baldwin] — by Mendi + Keith Obadike — is a public sound art installation dedicated to writer and public intellectual James Baldwin (1924-1987). For Baldwin sound, music, and the blues in particular were sources of inspiration. The multichannel sound art work meditates on a politics of listening found at the intersection of Baldwinʼs language and the sound worlds invoked in his work. It uses the glass façade of The New School’s University Center as delivery system for the sound, turning the building itself into a speaker. The 12-hour piece is created using slow moving harmonies, melodicized language from Baldwinʼs writings, ambient recordings from the streets of Harlem, and an inventory of sounds contained in Baldwin’s story “Sonnyʼs Blues.”

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

Looks Like Music by Yuri Suzuki

Looks Like Music – Mudam 2013 from Yuri Suzuki on Vimeo.

The Looks Like Music project by sound artist and designer Yuri Suzuki features robots that are programmed to follow a black line drawn on white paper. They each respond with specific sounds as they pass over coloured marks laid down across the track by visitors.

The public is invited to actively contribute to the development of the installation in the exhibition space by extending the circuit drawn on paper,” said Suzuki. “Visitors thus participate in the creation of a large-scale artwork and enrich a collectively composed sound piece.”
