Transmissions in retrospect

24. januar 2011 | Posted by | Category: larm-news

‘Transmissions – sound art performed and discussed’ took place at Overgaden – Institute of Contemporary Art in Copenhagen on September 21-22, 2010. The event brought together artists, academics and curators in a joint program allowing for the different approaches to sound art to feed off one another. The title and theme of this seminar – Transmissions – both pointed to this interaction and touched upon some more general notions in terms of sound.

Københavns Universitet Torsdag d. 10. marts, kl. 9-16, lokale 23.0.49, Københavns Universitet , Karen Blixens Vej 1, 2300 København S. Arrangører: Bent Fausing og Mogens Olesen Introduktion til seminaret: Den digitale kultur og æstetik har haft en rivende udvikling inden for de sidste 25 år. Men udviklingen har ikke sat sig så mange spor inden for fagets undervisning og forskning – endnu. På seminaret “Den digitale kode” vil vi prøve at bryde koden inden for forskellige felter af den digitale kultur og æstetik, og give ordet til en række forskere og undervisere, der har beskæftiget sig indgående med emnet. Seminaret byder på oplæg fra forskere og undervisere fra danskfaget og udenfor faget, der vil bidrage med indsigter fra deres respektive felter inden for det hastigt ekspanderende digitale område. Det er endvidere karakteristisk – i modsætning til tidligere teknologiske nyskabelser – at den digitale kultur og æstetik berører alle områder af samfundet, ingen og intet er uberørt. Det gør også yderligere forskning og formidling inden for området meget nødvendig for faget og samfundet.

Ophavsretten får større og større betydning i disse år. Det gælder ikke mindst for undervisere og forskere og deres tillidsrepræsentanter. Og det gælder også for andre, herunder sagsbehandlere i faglige organisationer og private virksomheder. Hvem ejer forskningen, forskerne eller læreanstalterne? Hvilke rettigheder har underviserne til deres undervisningsmateriale? Skal man som lærer finde sig i at blive podcastet? Kræver det tilladelse at linke på internettet? Kan e-læring være strafbar? Og hvilke knapper skal man trykke på for at være lovlig? Det er kun nogle af de spørgsmål, der løbende melder sig. Det er vigtigt at være klædt på til at svare på de spørgsmål, hvis man gerne vil begå sig i en verden, der bliver mere og mere indviklet. I samarbejde med UNI-C holder UBVA 12 gratis heldags-kurser i ophavsret i 2011. UBVAs hjemmeside: http://www.ubva.dk/Kurser

Audio-visuality

A conference on the experience of audio-visual art, artefacts, and media texts

May 26-28, 2011

Call for papers

Sound is one of the most overwhelming and omnipresent ‘interferences’ in modern life – and at the same time one of the most volatile and transient [human] experiences. Each individual can – with mobile media like the iPod – be accompanied by her own individual soundtrack, and thus ’score’ the experience of everyday living. Sound as such normally cannot be seen but both heard and felt, which makes it fundamentally multi- or synaesthetical. Our multi-sensuous reality, appealing to all the senses, is being reduced to exactly an audio-visual culture in (and?) what could generally be considered its electronically mediated version. In relation to the massive amount of audio-visuality we can state that research and the broad field of sound discourse are still inadequate when it comes to the qualitative exploration of aesthetic reception, theoretical and epistemological questions, dimensions, and themes. We are still hesitant and insecure in our knowledge on how an audio-visual phenomenon or a work of art may influence us, how we experience it and (inter)act with it, and what kind of experience, knowledge and understanding a predominantly audio-visual and multi-sensory culture facilitates and how it ?engages us in as late modern human beings. We imagine that the relations between sound and “a good experience” can be explored through genealogies of sound and listening and through reflections on the interactions of sound, listening/hearing and other sensory experiences. By emphasizing but not separating the audio aspect, the aim of the conference is to develop and strengthen audio-visual studies as a multi-facetted interdisciplinary field drawing on disciplines such as acoustics and sound studies, musicology, film- and media studies, anthropology, geography, cultural and urban studies, digital and audio design studies etc. The conference will be organized in four paralleltracks (themes) as follows: Track I: Sound Styling in Film and Television Genres Track II: Strategic Communication Track III: The Audiovisual exhibited – Sound in the (fine) Arts Track IV: Mobile Mediated Audiovisuality

DSKD is working on 3D spaces for sound archives, we will run through the start of our research to gain feedback and insight from users and academics.

Softcloud is our concept for a curated semantics of sound. Soft clouds are the clouds of data, metadata and relations between data and things in the cloud (sound and radioprograms i.e.) that you generate in a (research or creative) process.

We want to create an interface for that process where you may create and operate with your own ‘soft clouds’ – either from existing data and material on the platform, or from new material and data (or both). Softclouding is networking, not the internet. The infrastructure is NOT the internet, it is something different. Softclouding would be a way to work with physical space as a framing for interface, connections or presentations of different material.
