Iceberg Songs – Official Trailer

December 8, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on Iceberg Songs – Official Trailer 

Icebergs are crying. And we make them heard. With the power of music. Listen, understand and share – on http://www.icebergsongs.com/
A project by the UNFCCC.

Several musicians, including Trentemøller have now made music from the sounds that scientists at the South Pole recorded of an iceberg that ‘melts’. And it’s especially this ‘melts’ that is not well received by several scientific experts. They say that the band is being abused for the climate lobby because the sounds do not differ from sounds of icebergs that move, or hit each other as you can hear in the video below. So it’s indeed a bit odd to call it the sound of a melting iceberg…

The acoustics under the ice on the South Pole are being recorded since 2005 by scientists in the PALAOA (Perennial Acoustic Observatory in the Antarctic Ocean) who mostly study the sounds of the sea creatures in the Antarctic Ocean. They labeled the sounds as being from melting icebergs, but the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been recording exactly the same sounds in the past few years of… growing and stranding icebergs.

The project itself is part of a United Nations program to draw attention to the much talked about global warming issue, something which is still up for debate though as there is absolutely no agreement between scientific experts that this is human made, let alone that there is a global warming. Nevertheless, quite an enjoyable project.

So far both the Danish DJ and producer Trentemøller and the German duo Tom and Sue Niklas (TFSNL) have recorded a song. Later also songs from other musicians will be released.

Experimental // ::vtol:: prankophone

November 3, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on Experimental // ::vtol:: prankophone 

Prankophone is a sound object being a hybrid of synthesizer, telephone and logic module. The main principle of the object’s functioning is as follows: depending on the current mode, the apparatus calls to random or pre-defined recipients and plays them algorithmic melodies created from their phone numbers. The speakers transmit both the synthesized sounds and the sound from answering person. The common sound layer is involving a random recipient who doesn’t suspect anything. The person who answers the phone can’t hear any other sounds except for the synthesized ones.

Motus – Creative Motion Enhancer

October 24, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on Motus – Creative Motion Enhancer 

Motus allows users to literally play music in the air. No keys, buttons or knobs. While holding Motus in hand, you can play the note and at the same time change its timbre by using different motion gestures. Motus prototype was already used by contemporary dance theater for 3 seasons, so we already had traction before launching.”

See https://motusmotus.com for additional details including their crowdfunding campaign for the Motus.

Experimenting with sounds – Magnetoceptia

October 6, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on Experimenting with sounds – Magnetoceptia 

Recorded in July 2015 in Vienna (AT)

The Omega Birch is a wearable antenna receiver which picks up electromagnetic fields from its surroundings and translate them into audible sound. It is part of a series of costume receivers made for ‘Magnetoceptia’, a collaborative project by Patrizia Ruthensteiner and Dewi de Vree.

Baltic birch is among the most sought-after wood in the manufacture of speaker cabinets. Birch has a natural resonance that peaks in the high and low frequencies, which are also the hardest for speakers to reproduce. This resonance compensates for the roll-off of low and high frequencies in the speakers, and evens the tone. Birch is known for having “natural EQ”.

The project necessitates an involved participation and the object or event under consideration is by necessity considered not as an artefact but in its dynamic production that involves the performer/listener as intersubjectively constituted in perception, while producing the very thing he perceives, and both, the subject and the work thus generated concomitantly, are as transitory as each other.

Magnetoceptia

“Magnetoception: a sense which allows an organism to detect a magnetic field to perceive direction, altitude or location.”

Magnetoceptia is a series of performances and installations in which self constructed antenna-based costumes pick up electromagnetic fields and translate them into electronic sounds.

Hazlenut rods bended into the shape of a historical medici ruff, birch antlers, bamboo stems extending towards the skies, or an anachronistic recycled spinning wheel combined with open electronics and coils of copper wire wound into different patterns into the costume, the project is an investigation on different properties of natural and technological materials.

The experienced sound is site specific and depends on the electromagnetic fields that are present on the location. It is modulated by the performers by their positions and movements relative to the space and each other.

The ‘homo superiors’ (Friedrich Nietzsche) gain the ability to grow far beyond their human limitations and evoke a transformation not just physical extension, but also through sound and change of their ‘sound shape’ constantly audibly mirroring their surroundings.

The Spherics Harp is a wearable antenna receiver which picks up electromagnetic fields from its surroundings and makes them perceivable through sound. It is part of a series of wearable receivers made for ‘Magnetoceptia’, a collaborative project by Patrizia Ruthensteiner and Dewi de Vree.

The Spheric Harp is inspired by the ancient Qing Dynasty´s tremendous hairdos and through the length&height of bamboo sticks and strings tensed over a long distance, it has the ability to receive subtile signals from high above the clouds bouncing against the Ionosphere.

The project necessitates an involved participation and the object or event under consideration is by necessity considered not as an artefact but in its dynamic production that involves the performer/listener as intersubjectively constituted in perception, while producing the very thing he perceives, and both, the subject and the work thus generated concomitantly, are as transitory as each other.
