"Ice Ears" by Jacob Kirkegaard

categories:
Jacob K recording

Recording of an ice surface during hard storm. This 20 minute recording session was carried out on 7th of January 2004 on Lake Havravatn in Iceland. An Accelerometer was stuck into the creaking ice, enabling us to listen to how the wind would move the ice in various rythmic patterns. Frequency peaks around 15khz. What came to my ears was a neat but crispy creaking, appearing from the whole surface of the lake, that was moving in sensitive vibrations to the wind. It was interesting to hear the whole body of this lake in sound, and how it moved by the power of the wind. A beautiful sonification of a snow storm!

After the Matrix: Post-Media Tactics and the Ownership of Life

categories:

by Ricardo Dominguez (or someone almost like me)

"To every time its art. To every art its freedom."

- Joseph Olbrich, 1889

"Resistance comes first."

- Giles Deleuze

We are no longer under the sign of natural selection or even artificial selection—we are now under the sign of information selection. Everything on the planet, from indigenous aromas to public spaces to our atoms, is now forced to march into the Intellectual Property filters of globalization. Communication and evolution are little more than informatic-commoditization systems now. The neoliberal matrix that started to emerge fully in the 90's has played itself out on three stages: digital/Virtual Capitalism, genetic/Clone Capitalism and nanotechnology/Particle Capitalism. Each of these stages of technocapital are being integrated via a new "deep harmonization" of the global Intellectual Property agenda: copyright laws, trademark laws and patent laws. A process that starts in the research chambers and ends in ownership enclosures, from patenting technology to patenting life, from patenting information to patenting atom-based reality.

Theatre and Its Double

categories:

As I continue doing Art Dirt Redux I realize how different and advanced the series is. All art works bring realizations. As a working artist part of the work is to focus on the process and through that focus understand what you are doing. It’s odd because art making, the creative process is by its nature partially unconscious. That’s why it is different from say, computer programming or a manufacturing procedure. With any procedural process one expects a specific outcome. There are no surprises and no realizations. With art it's different. You engage in the process to be surprised by the outcome. Art Dirt Redux is sound art. It’s influences are Musique Concrete and early conceptual art documentation works such as Robert Morris’ piece, Sculpture With The Sound Of Its Own Making.

Podcasting in iTunes 4.9

via Six Apart:

Our co-founder Mena Trott is attending the D: All Things Digital conference, where she just sent word that Steve Jobs did a demo of iTunes 4.9. The big news is, the new version of the popular music management app beloved by iPod owners will feature integrated support for podcasting. Current plans call for podcasts to be free downloads: Users will submit their podcasts and Apple will be hand-picking the content it makes available to iTunes users.
