Sounds like Mobility: A Mobile Media, Sound and Music Event
Tuesday 17th May 2011, CoDE: The Cultures of the Digital Economy Research Institute at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.
Sitting down motionless, staring at screens, and focusing on the task at hand are becoming much less common than using media on the go, touching and listening to a device, while also being involved in other activities. In mobile media contexts, alternative sensory modalities increasingly replace the largely visual paradigms of the (both physical and virtual) desktop era. This one-day event examines the role of sound in media interactions as an especially pertinent example of our post-desktop world. It features invited speakers, performances, demos, pecha-kuscha-style short presentations and poster presentations. It takes place in Cambridge (UK) and is organised by CoDE: The Cultures of the Digital Economy Research Institute at Anglia Ruskin University.
There is much more to this than iPods and alert sounds. Interactions between various physical contexts, social networks, mobile bodies and networked devices can be mediated in an almost infinite number of ways by sound – and also Read the rest of this entry »
An idea many of us have talked about over the last few years, for example at the Mobile Art&&Code event, and the Mobile Music Workshops, is now happening in Germany: The ZKM (Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe) collaborates with a few partners to present the International AppArtAward 2011. They “select the best works of art in app format that have advanced to artistic applications and/or have distinguished themselves as technically outstanding software solutions.” I’m hoping that we’ll see many sound and music apps in this contest!
They encourage applications from “software developers and artists, as well as all fans of app with creative and innovative applications”. The deadline is The submission deadline is Read the rest of this entry »
I’m calling all practitioners who read my blog to submit their relevant work to the new exhibition on Sonic Interaction Design that I’m involved with. The deadline is next Friday – 5th November 2010! The event will take place at the Norwegian Museum of Science, Technology & Medicine in Oslo in Summer 2011, in collaboration with NIME 2011 (New Interfaces for Musical Expression). All relevant information is at http://www.cost-sid.org/wiki/SIDExhibitionSummer2011 and in an older post.
When I was in Helsinki recently, I spent my last few hours in the city at the Night of the Arts. The piece ‘Kolme kirjettä (Three letters)’ Liisa Tervinen and Saana Uosukainen.
The simplicity of the installation was really beautiful. Transparent umbrellas equipped with small speakers were broadcasting the recordings of three love letters read out. These umbrellas were Read the rest of this entry »
Yes, this is advertised by the ‘New Society for VISUAL Arts’ but who knows, they might be open minded about sonic interventions on the Berlin Underground too? Let me know if you have any projects!

The organisers, the Neue Gesellschaft fuer Bildende Kunst (NGBK) in Berlin, are looking for situation specific and/or participatory ideas, visions, experiments and interventions which address the future meaning of ‘public’ in Berlin’s public Underground Network. They can range from being short, interventionistic artistic reactions to specific occurrences on the Underground to being long term collaborations aimed at creating sustainable relationships to Underground staff and/or users over a number of years. A total budget of 30.000 Euro for artist’s fees, production, Read the rest of this entry »

- “Odd Sympathies” is a mobile sound project by “Sans façon”, a collaborative art practice between a French architect, Charles Blanc, and a British artist, Tristan Surtees.
This is a re-blog from their blog, an extract of their press release:
We finished the last performances of Odd Sympathies last week-end.
An extract from the press release:
“Imagine attending a concert but instead of sitting or standing, you walk. Imagine the music you listen to captured from sounds that already exist around you as you walk through the concert. Imagine the concert is slightly different each time you experience it because there may be unexpected sounds along the way. Sans façon and composer John Metcalf have collaborated to create Odd Sympathies, three new sonic pieces that capture the sounds of the city of Cardiff and together form what we believe is the first sonic map of the city.
Drawing inspiration from the iconic work 4’33’’ Silence by John Cage, Odd Sympathies is a series of carefully composed sound maps of Cardiff that take in some of the fascinating landmarks in the city and open the ears to a sound world that is in many ways as dense and magical as a rainforest.”
and a short interview on Radio Wales Arts Show with Nicola Heywood Thomas available until june 12:
Check out http://www.sound-delta.eu/ for ‘ a mobile project on the Danube & Rhine Rivers focusing on radio-art using sounds of European cities. Two teams will be travelling on both rivers this summer, recording sounds, producing live performances and radio broadcasts with local sound-artists. A final exhibition is scheduled in Strasbourg-F by the end of September 2008 as part of http://www.ososphere.org
International sound artists are invited to apply with a project meant to be created on one of the trans-European floating labs.

No sound or mobile media in this project – and still I was intrigued by the beauty and simplicity of it.
Map Me by Hugh Davies is a beautiful networking and social mapping exercise I encountered at conflux. Starting off with only a few cards and strings it evolved into a dense and colourful mesh of conflux visitors who Read the rest of this entry »
“Energy Harvesting Dérive” is a fun audio and visual Heely Hack by Christian Croft and Kate Hartman.
The project was presented at Conflux last week where I had a chance to talk to both of them. They started off with the LED arrows to guide people in a direction; but then realised that it is a bit awkward to look at your shoes while heelying along. So they decided to Read the rest of this entry »
