Invisible Cities - Christian Marc Schmidt

By revealing the social networks present within the urban environment, Invisible Cities describes a new kind of city—a city of the mind. It displays geocoded activity from online services such as Twitter and Flickr, both in real-time and in aggregate. Real-time activity is represented as individual nodes that appear whenever a message or image is posted. Aggregate activity is reflected in the underlying terrain: over time, the landscape warps as data is accrued, creating hills and valleys representing areas with high and low densities of data.
Invisible Cities maps information from one realm—online social networks—to another: an immersive, three dimensional space. In doing so, the piece creates a parallel experience to the physical urban environment. The interplay between the aggregate and the real-time recreates the kind of dynamics present within the physical world, where the city is both a vessel for and a product of human activity. It is ultimately a parallel city of intersections, discovery, and memory, and a medium for experiencing the physical environment anew.

Urban Sound Cultures – University of Copenhagen

Urban Sound Cultures – University of Copenhagen | DESARTSONNANTS - CRÉATION SONORE ET ENVIRONNEMENT - ENVIRONMENTAL SOUND ART - PAYSAGES ET ECOLOGIE SONORE | Scoop.it

...Cities have always been associated with the experience of noise. Paradoxically discourses about the sound of the city tend to focus on reduction of noise while disregarding investigations into the qualities of urban acoustics and the way they shape urban life worlds. As designed sound environments play a more and more dominant role in public space, approaches to urban auditory experience become increasingly relevant. Today acoustic design not only pertains to the shaping of physical and acoustical properties, but also to sonic interventions through speaker systems that build commercial or artistic, attractive or repellent, social or individualistic environments. Sound seems to be becoming a design factor. The seminar will focus on questions like which terminologies and methodologies are available for analyses of urban acoustics; and in what ways do these approaches relate to present or past notions of urban culture?...

Unsilent Night - Phil Kline

Unsilent Night - Phil Kline | DESARTSONNANTS - CRÉATION SONORE ET ENVIRONNEMENT - ENVIRONMENTAL SOUND ART - PAYSAGES ET ECOLOGIE SONORE | Scoop.it

 

Unsilent Night is composer Phil Kline's free outdoor participatory sound sculpture of many individual parts, recorded on cassettes, CD's and mp3's, and played through a roving swarm of boomboxes carried through city streets every December. People bring their own boomboxes and drift peacefully through a cloud of sound which is different from every listener's perspective.

Fallt is an independent publishing house specialising in experimental music, fine art, design and criticism. We publish well-designed, collectable works in small, but affordable editions.
Desarts Sonnants's insight:

"At times all I need is a brief glimpse... a glint of light in the fog, the dialogue of two passersby meeting in the crowd, and I think that, setting out from there, I will put together, piece by piece, the perfect city, made of fragments mixed with the rest, of instants separated by intervals, of signals one sends out, not knowing who receives them."
