Everyday Listening: sonic inspiration

ELBAnner0003.png

Everyday Listening: sonic inspiration collects inspiring and remarkable sound art and creative sound design projects, installations, reviews of urban soundscapes, places, contemporary or experimental, mostly electronic music. You might also read about new ways of using and distributing music and sound.

The term Everyday Listening is used to describe the way we use sound to find our way in our everyday life. There's an article by Buxton, Gaver & Bly giving a very clear description of this phenomenon:

"Everyday listening is a matter of listening to the attributes of events in the world - the speed of a passing automobile, the force of a slammed door, whether a person is walking up or downstairs."

Sonus

Nonrepetitive

Sound artwork: Nonrepetitive by Achim Wollscheid

Through the graphical interface the user/participant can influence the parameters of a sound data generator, effecting things like sound colour, density and complexity. The impact of the change can be seen on the interface by other users visiting at the same time, in another place and they may also mutually interfere through the interface, in order to change the generation of sound.

Once you grab the line - representing the present wave spectrum of what is to be heard - and change it, any other user online on this page will witness the alteration. In other words, this piece is not an applet that you download, but an online piece that you actually change on the server while others can watch, listen, and equally interact. The piece is thus subject to a play or negotiation between partners.

Launch project.

Museums of the mind, mortions of the mind, doctorhugo.com is a webiste with so much information that it is quickly becoming a major resource for net art enthusiasts. It contains theoretical texts such as History of the Internet and Critique of Net Art, as well as links to documentation of pieces that exist outside of the web.

moddr_your ‘unfriendly’ neighbourhood medialab…

moddr.png

moddr_ came about in 2007 when a group of alumni from the Media Design MA course, at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam, decided there was room for another ‘new media’ place in the city next to the already established and rather famous v2_lab. We wanted to create a place that is more accessible to young artists and hackers, without the need for overblown project descriptions and ridiculous budget applications.

The name ‘moddr_’ resembles the dutch word ‘modder‘, meaning mud, and we chose this name to show that a large part of our practice involves the modification (modding) and re-creation of already existing technology. We tend to dislike the idea of contemporary media being labeled ‘new’, and it is part of our mission to display a critical perspective on issues related to this through our artistic practice - basically the lab consists of some very geeky fine-artists…

Ubuweb

ubuweb2.png

UbuWeb is a completely independent resource dedicated to all strains of the avant-garde, ethnopoetics, and outsider arts.
All materials on UbuWeb are being made available for noncommercial and educational use only. All rights belong to the author(s). UbuWeb is completely free.

Launch project

Essentially a gift economy, poetry is the perfect space to practice utopian politics. Freed from profit-making constraints or cumbersome fabrication considerations, information can literally "be free": on UbuWeb, we give it away and have been doing so since 1996. We publish in full color for pennies. We receive submissions Monday morning and publish them Monday afternoon. UbuWeb's work never goes "out of print." UbuWeb is a never-ending work in progress: many hands are continually building it on many platforms.
UbuWeb posts much of its content without permission; we rip out-of-print LPs into sound files; we scan as many old books as we can get our hands on; we post essays as fast as we can OCR them. UbuWeb is an unlimited resource with unlimited space to fill. It is in this way that the site has grown to encompass hundreds of artists, hundreds of gigabytes of sound files, books, texts and videos.
