LARM er for tiden i gang med et spændende samarbejde med Arbejdermuseet om, hvordan man på en lettere måde kan formidle og få adgang til samfundets lydkilder. Målet er, at forskere, studerende og andre interesserede skal kunne udforske også lydsiden af den danske kulturarv. Indledningsvist vil det komme til at dreje sig 14 optagelser á ca. 20 timer fra Arbejdermuseet.

På Arbejdermuseets hjemmeside kan du læse mere om pilotprojektet og høre et par eksempler på optagelser. Du kan høre Statsminister Hans Hedtofts Nytårstale fra 1954 og klip fra kommunist Villy Fuglsang og maskinarbejder Lauritz Hansens erindringer.

P1-programmet, De hemmelige arkiver, kan du fra 18.45 høre mere om museets arkiv af flere tusind timers lydoptagelser.

Vi regner med, at alle optagelserne vil være tilgængelige på LARM.fm inden sommerferien.

Det er med stor glæde, at vi kan fortælle, at forskningsprojektet A Century of Radio and Music in Denmark: Music Genres, Radio Genres, and Mediatisation vil få uddelt 6,4 mio. kr. fra det Frie Forskningsråd. Og dermed er det sikret, at der også vil blive forsket i radio efter LARM’s udløb. Københavns Universitet huser projektet, som vil blive ledet Morten Michelsen, lektor på Institut fra Kunst- og Kulturvidenskab.

Projektbeskrivelse: Musik har altid udgjort ca. halvdelen af DRs samlede sendeflade, men ingen har endnu systematisk undersøgt, hvad musik gør ved radio og radio ved musik. Derfor undersøger RAMUND, hvordan radio og musikliv i Danmark har påvirket hinanden i de sidste små 100 år. Musik og radio mødes i musikradio, og projektets hovedopgave er at undersøge en lang række programmer, programserier og sendeflader. En delopgave er at analysere, hvilke typer radio musikradio omfatter, og hvordan de har forandret sig historisk. Møderne mellem musik og radio sker i lyset af en række kulturelle konventioner, artefakter, praksisser og institutioner. De kan forstås som genrekulturer, et begreb der fungerer både konkret som systematiserende og generelt som rammesættende for sociale praksisser.

soundsignatures

Location and Date: The Sound Studies Winter and Summer School is scheduled to take place on January 13-17, 2014 at the University of Amsterdam (NICA) and on August 18-22, 2014, at NYU and the Max-Planck-Institute for the History of Science.

 

Objectives

The two schools will focus on the notion of “sound signatures” as a way to reconsider sound as a phenomenon that is highly bound to specific media, material cultures, and related discursive systems. It invites graduate students from different disciplines to investigate the connection of sound to particular contexts and fields of action: social, scientific and artistic practices, embodied skills, objects, technologies and media, architectural and environmental designs.

Aalborg University hosts the Sonic Signatures Symposium for PhD
students and postdoctoral researchers in the period 9th ­- 11th of April
2014.

Compositional style and instrumentation provide an identity to a
recorded music artefact, a means to recognize the imprint of composer
and/or performer and variously historical, cultural, political, national
and rhetorical milieux. There is, however, another strand to identity
that derives from the processes of recording and post-production, a
strand that may be termed the artefact’s sonic signature.

Search and Interaction in Media Archives

Open seminar on search and interaction in media archives at DR, 9:00-13:00 Thursday June 27.

Place: Emil Holms Kanal 20, 2300 Copenhagen S

With digital production and digitisation of cultural heritage archives arise a hitherto unseen potential for discovery, creative use and re-use of broadcast audio and video. In order to take advantage of this potential, however, search and interaction for such archives need to be optimized and reinvented. DR and the Royal School of Library and Information Science at the University of Copenhagen invite interested practitioners and researchers to a seminar on search and interaction in media archives.

Program

  • 09:00 Registration, coffee and croissants
  • 09:15 Welcome
    Mette Charis Buchman, DR Archive, Research & Rights
    Birger Larsen, Royal School of Library and Information Science
  • 09:30 Designing the Search Experience
    Tony Russell-Rose, Director of UXlabs, UK
  • 10:45 larm.fm master class
    Andreas Røll Larsen, DR Archive, Research & Rights
    and Tony Russell-Rose
  • 11:30 Good Practices for Finding Information

    Marianne Lykke, Professor at University of Aalborg, Denmark
  • 12:30 The Future of Music Interaction
    Daniel Boland, PhD student at University of Glasgow, UK

  • 12:55 Final remarks
  • 13:00 Lunch and networking

The seminar is free, but 1st-come-1st-serve registration is necessary as the number of participants is limited. To register please send an email to Ragnhild Riis (qbz397@iva.ku.dk) no later than Monday June 24 at 16:00.

The seminar is supported by DR Archive, Research & Rights, the Royal School of Library and Information Science and the Centre for Communication and Computing at the University of Copenhagen,Findwise, the LARM project, the CoSound project and the MUMIA EU COST action on Multilingual and Multifaceted Interactive Information Access.

Herrenhausen Palace, Hanover/Germany, December 5-7, 2013

In times of digitization, internet, and mobile communication, the humanities can build on new, empirically driven methods to gain new insights. But what are the implications of this mode of knowledge production for the various disciplines subsumed under the term humanities, their methods and research objects, and for the role the humanities should and could play in society? We would be delighted if you joined the discussion please save the date and the event in your calendar.
Confirmed speakers include:

  • Gregory Ralph Crane, University Leipzig
  • Iryna Gurevych, Technical University Darmstadt
  • Lawrence Lessig, Harvard Law School
  • Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, University of Oxford
  • Lev Manovich, City University of New York
  • Jeffrey Schnapp, Harvard University
  • Eleanor Selfridge-Field, Stanford University

Call for papers – LARM Conference

Digital Archives, Audiovisual Media and Cultural Memory

Conference, The University of Copenhagen, November 14-15, 2013

Keynote speakers:

David Hendy, University of Sussex
Karin Bijsterveld, Maastricht University
Lev Manovich, City University of New York
Michele Hilmes, University of Wisconsin-Madison

We welcome abstracts for our open paper sessions and for panels taking place at the conference. Sub-calls for the panels can be found by following the links bellow.

Digitization enables us to meet cultural heritage artifacts and narratives in heretofore unimagined media and platforms. Accessibility to written, visual, auditory and audiovisual sources increase dramatically. But how do we wish to access and interact with cultural heritage sources in the 21st Century? This conference focuses on practices of cultural memory in the multiform meetings between users and cultural heritage. What interfaces are established between users, be they researchers or ‘ordinary’ citizens, and the archives of cultural heritage? What possibilities are opened for interaction with cultural heritage artifacts? And what methods and scientific paradigms are relevant to order and describe such immense archives.

Kurset er en uges lydlegeplads, hvor du undersøger verden med ørerne, fanger nuet og får tips til interviewteknik, optagelse og redigering. Alt sammen krydret med lyttebiograf og hyggeligt samvær.

Hele programmet kan ses her på siden inden længe.

FOTO OG RADIO
Larm forløber samtidig med kurset Foto på Vallekilde. Der vil derfor være god mulighed for at se flotte og historiefortællende billeder og dyrke samspillet mellem foto og lyd.

The Royal School of Library and Information Science at the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Copenhagen invites applications for a PhD scholarship commencing 1 October 2013 or soon thereafter. The position is part of the Danish strategic research project CoSound.

CoSound is a strategic research project that focuses on methods and tools for an augmented audio experience and making the information actionable, i.e., enable users to interpret, organize, analyze, share, co-create, and facilitate story-telling and audio management. The project is led by the Technical University of Denmark – see this website for more information on the project and partners.

Her er et glimrende eksempel på, hvad man kan bruge LARM.fm til. Et radiofonisk dialektkort.

500 samtaler fra “De Ringer – Vi Spiller” er plottet ind på et Danmarkskort, dér hvor lytteren ringede fra. Kortet linker direkte til udsendelserne i radioarkivet (LARM.fm), så ved at klikke på kortet får man et indblik i, hvordan der faktisk tales på forskellige steder i Danmark.

Klik på kortet herunder for at læse mere og komme videre til det interaktive kort.
