Supporting Media Studies Research with Information Retrieval Technology

Media studies concerns the study of production, interpretation and/or reception of various types of media, e.g., social media, film, and television. Today’s continues production and storage of media is changing the way researchers in this field work and this change requires the development of new search models and tools. In my talk I will first discuss a study of the research cycle of media studies researchers and how it can be divided in three main stages: exploration, contextualization, and presentation.

Event based listening: music streaming services and listening patterns

The research project Clouds & Concerts has gained access to anonymous user logs of the use of the streaming service WiMP in Norway for 9 weeks during 2010 and 11 weeks in 2011 (with further analyses to be performed also in 2012 and 2013). The data is analyzed for user patterns relating to when listeners listen to music, which devices are being used, genre patterns, location and much more.

Rhythm and Language: an EnGeRomic Seminar
Thursday 24 May 2012
kl.14.15-17.00 lok. 24.4.01

A modest symposium on a large subject.

The aim of this symposium is to give EnGeRomic consideration to the rhythms of our various languages and the ways in which those rhythms may manifest themselves, in poetry and song, and in the patterns of colloquial speech and their distortions for purposes varying from the comic to the military. Both accents and dialects can involve rhythmic shifts and mutations; these can be heard synchronically, and can sometimes be traced diachronically. And what part does rhythm play in the act and art of translation?

The two main speakers will be

Jacob Thøgersen har skrevet en artikel om talesproget i radioavisen fra 1936 til 2006. Du kan læse den i tidsskriftet Danske Talesprog, Bind 11, side 185-214 . Selve numret skal man dog købe eller skaffe gennem sit yndlingsbibliotek.

Her er abstractet:

I Danmark udgør radioavisen et særligt ophøjet normideal for talesproget. Hvis der er ét sted det bedste talesprog findes, og skal findes, er det blandt radiovisens oplæsere. I denne artikel undersøges stiludviklinger i radioavisens talesprog fra 1939 til 2006. Fokus ligger på træk der er stilistiske variabler, snarere end træk der er udtryk for forandringer i dansk talesprog generelt. Den underliggende antagelse er at radioavisen bevæger sig fra en norm om neutralt oplæst skriftsprog til en norm om mere uformelt talesprog. Det vises bl.a. at talehastigheden er øget, at grundtonen først sænkedes og siden er steget, at pauseringen er mindre markeret som oplæst skriftsprog og at der er en højere grad af assimilation af stavelser end tidligere.

Artist talk by Sound Artist Jacob Kirkegaard
Wednesday April 25, 8 pm Tidsskriftscaféen, IKK
Karen Blixens Vej 1, building 21, 3rd floor


Jacob Kirkegaard is a Danish artist who focuses on the scientific and aesthetic aspects of resonance, time, sound and hearing. His installations, compositions and performances deal with acoustic spaces and phenomena that usually remain imperceptible. Using unorthodox recording tools, including accelerometers, hydrophones and home-built electromagnetic receivers, Kirkegaard captures and contextualizes hitherto unheard sounds from within a variety of environments : a geyser, a sand dune, a nuclear power plant, an empty room, a TV tower, and even sounds from the human inner ear itself.

The talk is part of the course in Aural Cultures at the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies.

Free Entrance and open to all.

The radio voice is the voice of everyday life. Whether the expression is intimate or authoritative the radio voice merges with our private sphere and we react to the speaking voice in certain ways – with degrees of affection or perhaps with disgust. From the very advent of broadcast radio around 1920 it has been characterized by an orality addressing all listeners regardless of their social class. The fact that radio voices have been associated with the voices of everyday life calls for a closer examination.

The Radio Voices seminar focuses on the expressive qualities of radio voices. How do we describe radio voices and how do these mediated voices interfere with us in our daily life? The seminar addresses these central questions from a variety of perspectives ranging from current research in voice aesthetics and reception to practices of voice training and voice editing.

The seminar is free and open to everyone.

”LARM og Radiobølger i Rundetårn” sætter fokus på forskning i lyd, radioudsendelser og radiospektrets frekvenser. Forskere fra LARM og DTU Space inviterer indenfor til workshops, radiolytning og oplæg den 19. April kl. 20.00 i Rundetårn.

DR har sendt stemmer af sted med radiobølger siden 1925 – En væsentlig lydkulturarv, der hidtil har været et svært tilgængeligt område for forskere.

LARM er et forskningsinfrastrukturprojektet, hvor DR og Statsbiblioteket er gået sammen med flere af landets universiteter og forskningsinstitutioner. Samarbejdet har skabt den digitale infrastruktur CHAOS, der har muliggjort nye forskningsområder inden for lyd og radio.

Få indblik i og lyt til, hvad kulturforskerne undersøger i de gamle radioudsendelser – og deltag i workshoppen der leder efter lyde i CHAOS.

Gå på opdagelse i radiospektret fra en amatørradiostation i Rundetårns kuppel, og fang en radiofrekvens i luften. Find ud af hvorfor studerende fra DTU Space vil give gøge rygsække på, og hør, hvad det har at gøre med radiobølger.

Velkommen til fernisering: 27. april 2012 kl. 17 – 19:30 med performance af Martinka Bobrikova & Oscar de Carmen kl. 18.00
Udstillingsperiode: 28. april – 3. juni 2012
Sted: Museet for Samtidskunst, Stændertorvet 3A, 4000 Roskilde

Åbningstider: Tir.-fre. kl. 11-17, lør.-søn. kl. 12-16

Pris: Voksne: 40 kr. Seniorer: 20 kr. Børn & unge under 18 samt studerende: Gratis

Lydkunst er en flygtig kunstart, der bevæger sig på tværs af medier og kan tage mange forskellige former og udtryk. Det er SOUNDINGS 2 et eksempel på. I udstillingens mangfoldige lyduniverser møder vi behagelige lyde der beroliger, intense lyde der skræmmer og provokerer og flygtige sarte lyde som pludseligt dukker op blot for at forsvinde lige så pludseligt. Flygtigheden kræver, at vi træder ind i installationerne, hvor lyd fungerer som medspiller i skabelsen af særligt sanseskærpende rum. På SOUNDINGS 2 – NORDIC SOUND ART GRADUATE SHOW på Museet for Samtidskunst kan du opleve lydkunst på egen krop.
