Spacepod I, August 2011

The Spacepod is a chamber that projects auditory architecture around a listener.  Using an omnidirectional array of speakers, it produces a sensation of auditory surfaces using ambisonic localization, psychoacoustic cues, and parametric mapping. Effectively, one finds oneself navigating by ear a world in which every surface is covered in sound-emitting pores. The Spacepod functions as a sort of spacecraft that sends the listener flying through auditory spaces that would be impossible or prohibitive to construct physically, without any of the constraints of bodily mass.

Baroque.me visualizes the first Prelude from Bach’s Cello Suites. Using the mathematics behind string length and pitch, it came from a simple idea: what if all the notes were drawn as strings? Instead of a stream of classical notation on a page, this interactive project highlights the music’s underlying structure and subtle shifts.

Join GAFFTA and Eyebeam in San Fransisco for a Sound Research Group meeting on August 3rd, 6–8PM. Thinkers and makers will be brought together in dialogue with the goal of stimulating new points of overlap and conversation around issues of both production and aesthetics.  Discussion will be centered around projects/initiatives that have grown out of the New York City group, new work by Bay Area artists, as well as a discussion led by Marc Weidenbaum, founder of disquiet.com, around sound-art remix projects he has curated and their intersection with #netlabel culture. 

This is a great opportunity to join the conversation and participate in an ongoing collaboration on developing dialogue around sound art on both the west and east coast.

Silent Project used multiple audio transmission technologies to broadcast music to individuals rather than to a group. Each participant heard a simultaneous broadcast of music, similar to what he or she would experience as a concert-goer, but this experience was internalized and isolated through entirely private audio devices. As a result, visitors who are not participating in the technology experienced the performance only as audience members.

Both a concert performance and a film, this atmospheric new piece from electronic composer and sound artist Ryoji Ikeda approaches an aesthetic of pure data. C4I is a meticulous composition derived from global systems in mathematics, economics, biology and the natural world.

* Live Performance will begin promptly
