Call for Papers: The Status of sound

cageatwdr.jpgCall for Papers:: The Status Of Sound: Writing Histories Of Sonic Art :: Due August 15, 2012 :: Notification: September 1, 2012

Is “sound art” defined more by the medium of sound or the context of art?

Coming Soon: Steering Sound with Light

electrostriction.jpgFrom Technology Review :: The ability to create phonons and then steer them using laser beams could lead to a new generation of applications, say physicists ::

Zap an optical fibre with a couple of laser beams and the resulting interference pattern causes an interesting effect–it squeezes the material, an effect known as electrostriction. This creates a compression wave called a phonon, a packet of sound, which travels along the fibre.

Not to be outdone, phonons also influence light because they change the refractive index of the material. This bends light and alters its frequency, an effect known as Brillouin scattering.

After that, things get complicated…. Read on: http://www.technologyreview.com/view/428515/how-to-steer-sound-using-light/?nlid=nldly&nld=2012-07-17 OR: THE PHYSICS ARXIV BLOG Monday, July 16, 2012

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.
