PhD course ‘Multimodal interaction in virtual environments’ incl visual-haptic-audio feedback, sensing technologies, capacitive sensing & optical motion capture
My ‘Sonic Interaction Design‘ colleague Professor Serafin is organising a PhD course on ‘Multimodal interaction in virtual environments’. The course will “start with an overview of multimodal perception to explain how humans behave in virtual environments where incomplete and impoverished sensory cues are reproduced.” And, amongst many other things the course will also “present an overview of technologies for visual-haptic-audio feedback in virtual environments, together with sensing technologies based on capacitive sensing and optical motion capture.”
For more information and for signing-up check here. The course is on May 10, 11, 12, 13 and June 6th at Aalborg University Copenhagen (where they also have the interesting Medialogy degrees). There is no fee for the course, but you get 4 ECTS.
Listening Exercises and Soundwalks at the Product Sound Design Summer School at Aalto Design Factory, Helsinki
A few weeks ago I was teaching at the Product Sound Design Summer School at Aalto Design Factory in Helsinki. It was great fun and here are some pictures from the event.
The module I was teaching focused on Listening Exercises and Soundwalks and was part of stage 1 ‘Sensitising’ of the summer school.
To be able to work with small groups of students I trained Stephen Barras, Inger Ekman and Sylviane Sapir. Stephen also wrote about this on his blog. It was very interesting to share how we use soundwalks in our teaching. Here are Read the rest of this entry »
I’ve uploaded a bunch of pictures of the first two days of the Product Sound Design Summer School. More to follow soon.
Golan Levin is organising an event dedicated to ‘Mobile Media and Interactive Arts’ at Carnegie Mellon University from the 6th to the 8th of November. Many presenters and organisers of the Mobile Music Workshops will be there, including Lalya Gaye, Teri Rueb, Jürgen Scheible, and myself. The other presenters have also used sound and music in their works, or have other really exciting mobile media work, and I’m really looking forward to all their presentations and hands-on workshops. Check out the website and I hope to see many of you there! I’ll present a paper “Towards a history of mobile phone arts”, that will (of course) have a sonic and musical focus, while looking at the bigger picture of a decade of mobile phone art, and pointing out some historic framework that suggests even a century of mobile phone arts – kind of…we will see.
The event website announces:
ART && CODE is an event series and online community dedicated to the democratization of computer programming for artists, young people, and the rest Read the rest of this entry »
Aural City (organised by Sound Studies, Holger Schulze) is targeting small and medium-size businesses in the Berlin area who plan to work with sound. The seminar deals with acoustic communications, with three key themes: Urban Sound Planning, Functional Sounds and Sound Branding. It takes place 24-25 April and 7-8 May.
This year’s SMC+SID Summer school is highly relevant for mobile sound projects, as it focuses on sonic interaction with Environmental sounds in the urban context. There is some funding available as well.
The 2009 Summer School in Sound and Music Computing & SID Training School on Interactions with Environmental Sounds will take place in Casa Da Música, Porto, Portugal, July 18th-21st, 2009, just before the 6th Sound and Music Computing Conference.
The theme of this summer school is Interacting with Sounds of Porto. This summer school will explore the potential of recording, processing, sharing and interacting with city sounds.
During 4 days, the program will include lectures, as well as hands-on practical sessions under the supervision of tutors who will provide one-to-one mentoring on artistic and/or scientific projects focused on interactions with sounds that reflect the city of Porto and its activities.
Speed talks and poster sessions will also be organized for students to present and receive feedback on their current research, and to foster scientific cross-fertilization.
Lectures and teachers:
