Urban Remix - Everyday Listening - Sound Art, Sound Installations, Sonic Inspiration | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

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.

polis: Conference to Explore Nationalism and the City | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

As urbanists, we regularly claim that "the city" breathes life into those within it. Yet this relationship is twofold: ‘the city’ would be nothing without the breath and imagination of its own people.

Dark ecology | Jacket2 | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

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).

Why Cities Keep Growing, Corporations And People Always Die, And Life Gets Faster | Conversation | Edge | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

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?

DOXIC SHOCK: Deliberating Autopoiesis

DOXIC SHOCK: Deliberating Autopoiesis | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

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.

Self Organizing Still-Life - Everyday Listening - Sound Art, Sound Installations, Sonic Inspiration | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

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.

Backward Induction and Option Valuation

Backward Induction and Option Valuation | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

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.
