“Submersible” by Yotam Mann & Niv Bavarsky

Turbulence.org Commission: Submersible by Yotam Mann and Niv Bavarsky [Needs Chrome 21+ or Safari 6+ and Speakers/Headphones]:

You are at a helm of a submarine navigating the depths of the ocean. At each strata, you see and hear different organisms. In the sunny epipelagic zone, watch the fast and massive tuna swim by in schools. Or catch a glimpse of the rare sea pig in the darkness of the abyssopelagic. Each of these organisms contributes a spatialized motif to the evolving soundscape.

Submersible is a 2013 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence website. It was made possible with funds from the Jerome Foundation. Continue reading

Live Stage: Jeff Talman: Sea of Curves (2012) [ca Newfoundland]

ocean.jpgSea of Curves (2012) – shoreline installation premiere :: July 14-20, 2012 :: Shoreline, Pouch Cove, Newfoundland, Canada :: shown daily at 7 PM, weather permitting :: Free admittance ::

Project sound, created by ocean waves, was recorded in the media of water, land and air by way of hydrophone, seismometer and microphone. A collboration with ocean researchers Matt Fowler and James Traer, this multi-channel work presented in view of the ocean engages the crashing waves as a sonic backdrop from which the work’s sound again emerges. Project sound includes the ‘hum of the earth’ – the vibrational sound of the earth as created by the worldwide impact of ocean wave sounds on the sea floor.

Live Stage: The Global Composition: Conference on Sound, Media and the Environment [de Darmstadt]

global.jpgThe Global Composition: Conference on Sound, Media and the Environment :: July 25-28, 2012 :: Hochschule Darmstadt / Media Campus Dieburg ::

Sound is ubiquitous and permanent, and embraces us as an envelope. Therefore, the experience of the auditory can be considered an environmental experience par excellence. The term and concept of soundscape reflects this idea. It implies, that sounds do not exist in isolation, and have to be understood as being embedded in and interacting with other sounds and perceptions coining the perceptional abilities of individuals and societies and their social relations: soundscape is a system in which all elements are interdependent.

The Global Composition: Deadline Extended

global_composition.jpgThe Global Composition: Conference on Sound, Media and the Environment :: July 25-28, 2012 :: Darmstadt/ Media Campus Dieburg (Hochschule Darmstadt), Frankfurt, Germany :: Call for Submissions — Deadline extended to March 30, 2012.

The sonic environment is an indicator for the quality of life: One crucial aspect, however, remains open and leads to a multitude of questions: Is this, what our hearing is exposed to, satisfying and enhancing our individual, social, functional, biological, economical, aesthetic and existential needs and endeavors? If not, which concepts exist to “orchestrate” everyday life’s cacophony? Which methods exist to successfully evaluate the quality of soundscapes? Continue reading

Live Stage: David Dunn [us Miami]

gustav.jpgSounding with David Dunn :: February 18, 2012; 7:00 pm :: Listening Gallery, 800 Lincoln Road, Miami, FL.

David Dunn is a deep yet entertaining thinker in all matters related to sound. For many years, his work with sound has explored the interaction between art, language and environment, and his brand of artistic curiosity has brought about a new field of insect sound studies and scientific research.

The Listening Gallery Soundings at the Artcenter are, not lectures, opening receptions or performances … but a sample of all-of-the-above. These are opportunities to meet the artist in a very special and intimate context. Continue reading

Live Stage: Sound­wwwalk Per­for­mance [tr Istanbul]

garnicnig_soundwwwalks_image_1.jpgISEA Istanbul presents Soundwwwalk Performance Panel: in­ves­ti­ga­tions to­wards an Acoustic Ecol­ogy of Net­works and the world wide web as in­ter­face and ma­te­r­ial for live per­for­mance — Chair Per­son: Bern­hard Gar­nic­nig; Pre­sen­ters: Ceci Moss, Jamie Allen, Peter Moos­gaard, Con­stant Dul­laart, Ju­lian Palacz, Joel Holm­berg, Will Schrimshaw :: Sep­tem­ber 17, 2011; 1:00 – 2:30 pm :: Sa­banci Cen­ter Room 7, Sa­banci Cen­ter, Lev­ent.

Com­puter net­works and cities both are so­cial spaces that have emerged as ma­te­r­ial spaces where lives are lead and work gets done. They are su­per­struc­tures for com­mu­ni­ca­tion, net­works of chan­nels where in­for­ma­tion and goods are trans­ferred. Both spaces have their par­tic­u­lar acoustic prop­er­ties and qual­i­ties, and while ex­ten­sive stud­ies of en­vi­ron­men­tal acoustics and the sound­scape of our en­vi­ron­ment have been emerg­ing in the last 40 years, net­work spaces are still con­sid­ered to be spaces with­out sound, acoustics or any sonic prop­er­ties.
