Room-Based Installation

Lucas Abela Vinyl Arcade
This work is showing at 35 Septimus Street Erskineville, opening 12 June 6-9pm, closing 19 June 6-9pm
Competition sessions take place twice a day, finals take place on closing night!

The vinyl rally is a large-scale interactive installation combining sound art, sculpture, video art, new media and competitive sports into every kid and kidult?s dream-hybrid; a kinetic, immersive, participatory play-set. The vinyl rally combines vinyl fetishism, video arcade mystique and the machismo of motor sports into a video game played within a real world setting! Imagine a racing track constructed from a mass of disused vinyl records, where remote control cars with styli attached to their chassis are raced by members of the crowd.

Warren Armstrong and Amanda Cole Twitterphonicon

The Twitterphonicon is an endless, self-generating musical piece created entirely from Twitter updates. A script, running continuously on a web server, searches for Twitter updates based on certain criteria, then converts the text into musical notes/chords and saves them to MIDI files. These files are then "played" in sequence by an application on a laptop. The audio is visually accompanied by a display of the tweets used to generate it. The sound design maps a different microtonal pitch to each letter of the alphabet. The constant feed of data from the Twitterphonicon is used to create indeterminate electronic music. The pitch mapping of each letter does not change, allowing the listener to hear and perhaps recognize reoccurring musical phrases made from particular words.

Stephen Barrass and Tim Barrass Flotsam, Jetsam and Lagan: Sonic Accelerometers for Water Sports

Flotsam, jetsam and lagan are inspired by the smooth pieces of driftwood found on the beaches of Murramarang National Park on the South Coast of NSW. These robust, waterproof, floatable objects wirelessly transmit a sonification of an internal 3 axis accelerometer that can be heard through FM headphones during sporting activities on the water. They can to be attached to an athlete?s arm, a paddle or to a skiff or kayak in order to listen to stroke, cadence, pace and many other aspects of performance. In exhibition they are displayed in a bowl of water with a light shining on them. Floating movements in the water cause them to produce small sounds that attract attention, pique interest and encourage passersby to pick them up. The irregular shape invites curious handling and the movements are heard from a loudspeaker situated inside the exhibition plinth out of sight. They are designed to be pleasing to the eye, hand and ear. Each prototype explores the functionality and aesthetics of different combinations of materials, technologies and sounds.



Somaya Langley The Suspect Backpack

The Suspect Backpack, a wearable mobile sonic media art experience provides the individual user with the opportunity for first-person interaction and engagement. Intended for use in public space, the public becomes an unwitting audience, meanwhile creating a personalised and intimate environment for the individual. Immersive in its very nature, sound is employed to convey feelings of anxiety spoken by a ?monkey mind?, while using news report announcements to inform the public of suspicious individuals. Intentional inevitable proximal shifts between audience and individual, and the readjustment of personal space affect sonic output.



Kathrin Stumreich Fabric machine

Two fabric loops, driven by a motor, create a division in space. Light sensors measure the opacity of the textile; there are thousands of different fabric samples out there, old ones , with ancient weaving tecniques, different embroidery, prints, etc. Algorithms/ electro acoustic sound generation: Each different fabric sample is able to deliver a highly individual sound source. The pure analogue translation from a electric signal (generated by the algorithm of the weaving tecnique) gives you an incredible range of different sound qualities, you have to learn to play this instrument, like learning how to play a guitar.The way all pieces are sewed together for a fabric sound track is responsible for beats, breaks and rhythms. Interface: Sowing interfaces out of different pieces of clothes like men shirt, underwear and many more, makes your individual clothing hearable. Without any special effects, the pure fabric is used as sound source.
