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

When does the dis­course of par­tic­i­pa­tion mask power? Who has ac­tual ver­sus per­ceived au­thor­ity? How do bot­tom-up, col­lab­o­ra­tive-based, lev­eled so­cial, cul­tural, and po­lit­i­cal ex­per­i­ments cre­ate new in­equal­i­ties?

Net_Music_Weekly: Sound Mirrors

soundmirror1.jpgA forerunner of Radar, acoustic mirrors or ‘listening ears’ were built on the south and northeast coasts of England (1916 – 1930s) to detect approaching enemy aircraft at a distance of 8 to 15 miles. With the development of faster aircraft the sound mirrors became less useful, as an aircraft would be within sight by the time it had been located; radar finally rendered the mirrors obsolete. [via]

Lise Autogena’s Sound Mirrors was inspired by the derelict acousic mirrors at Denge, England. It aims to create two new sound mirrors on the coasts of England and France to enable people on either side of the English Channel to speak to each other. Continue reading

Mix House

mix_house_imageEarlier this year I was briefly involved in the final stages of a project called “Mix House“, by architects Karen Van Lengen and Joel Sanders, and composer/sound artist Ben Rubin. My role was to compose a piece for the last minute of the video shown below. The concept behind the house, which currently exists only as a design and in this animation, is described below in the official text from the “Open House: Intelligent Living by Design” exhibit in 2007, a collaborative exhibit between the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

“‘Mix House’ expands the modernist notion of visual transparency afforded by the ubiquitous picture window to include aural transparency as well. Continue reading

Reblogged Stephen Vitiello Audio Environments

stephenvitiello_1.JPGStephen Vitiello Audio Environments: Played back on a 5.1 surround sound system, Steven Vitiello Night Chatter is multi-channel work composed of an analog synth track that rumbles under natural sounds recorded in the James River State Park and Cypress Bridge Forest, both in Virginia. The piece plays with the abstraction of night voices of animals as the artist states: “When I’m out in the field at night recording, there is a feeling of chatter, insect and animal voices that are communicating outside of my translation skills.” Continue reading
