Cyborgorganism – Open Cities [br Sao Paulo]

scie.jpgA10LAB & SCIE PROTOCOL are invited to the MobilFest III – Conference on Cyborgorganism – Open CitiesElectromagnetic Spectrum Research performance by THE NOISER :: November 14-17, 2008 :: Sao Paulo, Brazil.

“The Farther we emerge from the inner city, the more political the atmosphere becomes. We reach the docks, the inland harbors, the warehouses, the poor neighborhoods, the scattered refuges of wretchedness: the outskirts. Outskirts are the state of emergency of a city, the terrain on which incessantly rages the great decisive battle between town and country. It is nowhere more bitter between Marseilles and the provençal landscape. It is the hand-to-hand fight telegraph poles against agaves, barbed wire against thorny palms, the miasmas of stinking corridors against the damp gloom under the plane trees in brooding squares, short-winded outside staircases against the mighty hills.

Live Stage: Carl Stone’s “Han Bat” [jp Nagoya]

n52360710050_6179.jpgCARL STONE :: HAN BAT INSTALLATION :: C-Square Gallery, Chukyo University :: 101-2 Yagoto Honmachi Showa-ku :: NAGOYA JP :: June 30 at 6:30 pm.

HAN BAT is a multi-channel sound installation work by Carl Stone that builds from slow juxtapositions of various acoustic dimensions and spatializations that were enregistered using a special 8-channel portable recording system, The Octaphone, in 2007 and 2008. The Octaphone was developed by Carl Stone in collaboration with Professor Oizumi Kazufumi, of Chukyo University, and features 8 separate microphone capsules connected to two four-channel recorders, mounted on a specially designed transport bar that is light and small enough for portability.

Reblogged Recomputing Space

recomputing-space.jpgI posted about some work of Rodrigo Derteano’s last week (here) but this third work I omitted as it didn’t quite seem suitable to include with the other two works.

Recomputing Space is a sound installation which employs field recordings as a psychogeographic study of urban sound. “Following the commands and rhythm imposed by an algorithm, two persons walk around in chosen locations in the city, recording a mix of noise, language, music and the sound of their own steps. The chosen locations are public places, such as public squares, parks, tram stations etc. Continue reading

The Warbike

warbike2_bike.jpgDid you know that almost anywhere that you go in a city you’ll be sharing space with someone’s private wireless computer network? All of their personal communication—e-mail, love messages, bank passwords, credit card numbers, and bizarre surfing habits—will be passing through your body without your awareness. Who are they, and how do you feel about sharing space with their personal life? David McCallum’s Warbike turns this wireless network activity into sound. As you cycle the streets, you’ll hear the activity of this invisible communications layer that permeates our public spaces. From his thesis: Continue reading

Sonic Psychogeography and Orbital Viewing

wardenclyffe.jpg“[…] As a specific extension of the activities within the broader body of Makrolab research, the performative situations named Wardenclyffe accompanied the first station in Kassel in 1997. Makrolab operates outside the spectacle, in physically remote, non-urban spaces, it is a place of a production of knowledge and an archive of acquired data, whereas Wardenclyffe performative situations were realised within a more formal and representational frame, presenting the results of the research done within Makrolab.

between stations

betweenstations.jpgbetween stations by Marc Cooley – The public airways are mapped almost entirely to the mandates of consumer demographics, psychographics and other methods of locating, courting and creating compliant consumers and citizens. This sad context provides an aesthetic space where the mash-up and obliteration of those tired fictitious sites of meaning becomes a satisfying experience.

These recordings, created for podcast distribution, were made in the southeast of the United States on various points along Interstate 95 from Richmond Virginia and Fayetteville North Carolina. They capture profiles of American consciousness as competing sectors of the consciousness industry represents them and simultaneously they are the decomposition of preconfigured and seemingly stable consciousness moving at high velocity toward utter decay and slippage into forbidden, unclaimed and contested spaces.

Live Stage: xxxxx workshop _18 [de Berlin]

scrying.jpgxxxxx workshop _18 Berlin :: July 7, 2:00 PM: Mini_maxwell: City EM (electromagnetic) sniffing and flaneur with ap/xxxxx :: A reduced companion to the Oslo Maxwell City workshop investigating artistic uses of EM (electromagnetic) substance within Berlin, Mitte. Participants will build a small variety of simple electronic sniffing device to actively explore in primarily aural manner the alternative city space of ghost EM architecture (mobile emissions, metal structures supporting existent buildings, power and lines of transmission). EM sniffing is presented as contemporary city flaneur and divining activity. References:;; Against the Day by Thomas Pynchon, Jonathan Cape (21 Nov 2006). Please bring headphones and any audio/video recording device (minidisc, video camera, walkman). Continue reading

Always Something Somewhere Else

always-something.jpgGarrett Lynch writes about Always Something Somewhere Else by Duncan Speakman, a sound artist exploring ideas of memory, geography and communication. The work is a GPS based soundwalk that builds itself as you experience it. To create it I worked with Hewlett Packard in Bristol and their new mscape software.

In the work the listener is asked to locate various substances that form the contemporary urban environment (glass, stone, concrete etc.). As they mark the location of each one they begin to hear interwoven stories connecting them to remote locations around the world, soundtracked with a generative music score. The narratives are progressed and concluded as the listener returns to the locations they chose. The piece is reflective and sometimes melancholy, it touches on issues of climate change and global awareness, but ultimately encourages the listener to treasure the moments around them… Continue reading

Sonic Geographies

timestreams3.jpgSonic Geographies takes sound as the entry point for excavating and mapping urban experience and invisible infrastructures of the city. A series of experiments and scenarios are being developed that operate as maps and journeys but also as highly personal renderings of sonic experience – sounds of the personal world in conversation with sounds of the city. The mappings attempt to excavate the layers of sound that make up the city and create strata of difference: from the sound of a city’s church bells to the shifting sonic signatures of traffic, music radio and the layers of wireless communications.
