Audio Graffiti no. 2 - interactive soundart installation by Zack Settel & Mike Wozniewski

Audio Graffiti is a multi-user sound/music installation that explores new modes of sonic interaction, afforded by the latest in locative technologies. Several mobile users may create and explore a gradually evolving collage of audio graffiti.

 

The piece can be deployed in an outdoor environment (using GPS tracking), or in an indoor space as seen in this video. Equipped with a wireless headset and tracking device, participants can "tag" or "spray" sound on to a real physical wall. We provide several small musical instruments, which can be used along with one's voice, to add sounds to the collaborative musical mix. The installation is seeded with some pre-existing sonic material, which allows participants to synchronize rhythmically, and maintains cohesion over time. All user-contributed sounds slowly fade away, resulting in an ever-evolving musical piece.

 

As users moves about, they also experience a changing sonic perspective of the localized sounds, based on their particular location. Thus, users not only create the audio content, but they also participate actively in the encounter (remixing) of sonic material. Participants who are waiting their turn in the staging area may watch a real-time 3D visualization of the installation, which shows avatars of each player walking amongst virtual sound sources. ...

QR codes are difficult to incorporate into street art and graffiti. Yes, these QR code stickers by KATSU were a bit clever, but typically, my thought is that just putting up a QR code is a waste of space.

Tanukis being polymorph gentle spirits[*], it's natural for the whole project to be have many possible presentation "forms"

 

Tanuki, ou tanukibayashi, désigne, dans la mythologie japonaise, des esprits facétieux ressemblant à des blaireaux et ayant la capacité de changer de forme à volonté.

Japan has invested in a series of melody roads that sing out a tune as you drive over them, as part of a new tourist attraction.
roberto gilli's insight:

A singing road is a sort of "art-ification"? Great "talking place".
