Gut Head – fictional jam #1

coversweb.jpgGutHead – a fictional jam by Mark Cooley: What do Sonic Youth, King Crimson, Babe the Blue Ox, John Lennon, Lung Fish, Björk, Memphis Slim, Michael Jackson, Fiona Apple, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Fela Kuti and Frank Zappa have in common?

This is a story the not-too-distant past. A time when cd cases littered the front and back seats of cars and were far too infrequently replaced with new ones, causing us to become much more intimate and ultimately tired of the music that once immersed us. This is a recording that attempts to create something new from the old. This is a recording that attempts to pull the unheard out of the overplayed. And finally, this is the story of a small collection of cd’s that traveled together over many miles before ultimately succumbing and rendered unplayable by the hazards of life on the road.

IN[ ]EX

index.jpgIN[ ]EX is a distributed audio sculpture in which thousands of wooden blocks with embedded technology are released into the city to engage the public as active agents. IN[ ]EX invites audience activity, movement and interaction, as well as engages with the larger urban context as the blocks are dispersed throughout the city and culture in general.

The blocks are distributed through an array of interventions that reference early models of instruction-based participatory works. As the blocks circulate, they transmit data which is collected by mesh networks and processed to create a constantly remixed sound environment in a shipping container. Continue reading

Reblogged Greg Smith Interviews Eduardo Navas

turntable.jpg[Image: galibier design’s quattro turntable] One of my favourite blogs over the last year has been Remix Theory, a writing project quarterbacked by media theorist and artist Eduardo Navas. Eduardo is also the author of Remediative and Reflexive Mashups in Sampling Culture, a fantastic essay that beat-juggles a variety of paradigms that range from remix history through to data mashups. Eduardo and I have been firing questions back and forth over email for a few weeks and he has provided a compelling window into his research. Continue reading

smSage

smsage_diagram.jpgsmSage, by Tim Redfern + Ralph Borland, is a device to plant a murmur in the city. Mimicking a piece of faceless urban infrastructure, it murmurs to itself and to passersby, and seems to come from nowhere, a blank spot on an ordinary wall… Or which ubiquitous urban object is producing the sound? Which alarm-box, conduit, or… security camera?

smSage receives SMS text messages, which are converted to audible speech, using a text-to-speech engine with a synthesized voice. It speaks these messages coherently at first, but which each repetition, starts to mix them with previous messages it has received, producing a concrete poem. The voice becomes quieter … A new message wakes it up again, for brief lucidity, before sense begins to dissolve again. Continue reading
