Urban Remix is another ‘soundmap’ project like we have seen before. There is more to this project than just recording and uploading audio though. As the name suggests, you are able to remix the sounds you, or any other participant previously uploaded to the Urban Remix website, by drawing paths on a map.
I am also interested in sound recordist Bernie Krause’s theory of “biophony”—the audible equivalent of biodiversity, where species occupy acoustic niches as much as trophic ones (and certain highly developed species, like the Asian paradise flycatcher, can even occupy multiple niches in a complex soundscape). Krause proposes that with proper training one can learn to “hear” the diversity (or lack thereof) in certain ecosystems. Conversely, interruption of and incursion into the natural soundscape, a regular effect of human “internal combustion” activity, can impact the functioning of the ecosystem (so at rush hour the robins cannot hear the worms).
The question is, as a scientist, can we take these ideas and do what we did in biology, at least based on networks and other ideas, and put this into a quantitative, mathematizable, predictive theory, so that we can understand the birth and death of companies, how that stimulates the economy?
Autopoiesis principally dealt with determining the essence of living beings to start off with, thus calling to attention a clarification between organization and structure. This distinction was highlighted with organization subtending the set of all possible relations of the autopoietic processes of an organism and structure as a synchronic snapshot from the organizational set that was active at any given instant.
On the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, sound artist Mark Bain has released the full audio file of the sound of the Twin Towers collapsing, a melancholic howl terrestrially amplified by the region's geology.
I’m intrigued by this Self Organizing Still-Life created by David Fried. Once in a while I find out about a project that is so simple, yet so ingenious, I wish I’d come up with it myself.
These perfectly round spheres are set in motion by sound waves, through the level object they rest upon. The movement of each sphere can never be predicted, and they al move around in some sort of random choreography. There are more examples to be found on David’s website.
In 2007, The Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) hosted a conversation between Rem Koolhaas and Peter Eisenmen with Phyllis Lambert, the organization's founding member and famous patron of architecture, in the role of moderator. Mirko Zardini, the current director of the institution introduces the topic of Urgency and asks what this means to Rem/Eisenman/Phyllis.
Today we are going to explore how to value options. By "options", I mean situations in which you have the right, but not the obligation, to take an action. Having a right without an obligation is a bit like a free lunch: it is inherently valuable, and our goal is to quantify this.
'Sabotage the social machine'. 'Incinerate the documents!'. In the first contribution to a group of articles on logistics, workplace surveillance and national security, Alberto Toscano examines the anti-urbanist presuppositions of insurrectionary anarchism, speculating on how the catastrophic destiny of certain technological innovations might instead be turned to different ends
Today we are going to make an agent-based simulation model of Supply and Demand. Pretend we have a room full of people. Some of them have apples, some do not. Some are hungry, some are not. All have money in their pockets with which they can buy and sell apples, if they so choose. What determines the price of apples?
