geolocation

 

 

Running time: 0’40

 

What does my commute sound like?

Personal geolocation data were captured over a period of two years (May 15 – 17). The 300,000 collected points are visualized and sonified over time at a rate of one day per rendered frame. The series of longitude and latitude coordinates are conformed against the small window, normalized and exported as two audio channels.

What does a digital object sound like?

Geometric objects are stored as a series of points, which are connected to form a continuous surface. Each point is associated with a set of 3D coordinates.

In this experiment, the coordinates of a given object are plotted along the point index to form three individual graphs. The graphs are then normalized and combined into two channels, transforming the topological information into audible tracks.

These soundscapes are generated solely by the data representing each object. In the same way a gramophone reads the grooves of a record and outputs sound, the geophone iterates through the points and turns the traveled path into audio waves.

The end result is defined by the shape of the object, the order in which the points are digitally stored, the frequency in which they are iterated and the way the three graphs are mapped on to the two audio channels. No further processing has been applied.

alosis

 

 

Running time: 2’45″
Audio: Leonard j. Paul

Alosis is a comment on the relationship between man and his environment. We observe him living everyday mundane moments, ignoring the consequences his daily routine may have. Isolated from nature and confined in a digitized world, he celebrates his dominance and transcends into a hyperreality, challenging his own existence.

Alosis is part of a greater body of mixed media work, first presented at monomorphia.

telepolitics

 

Running time: 1’02”

Telepolitics is a satirical visualization of the televised political debates during the Crisis. Instead of having a comprehensive dialogue to discuss pragmatic solutions, the guests merely criticize each other and avoid resolving the issues at hand. The political dialogue loses its purpose, as it turns into a modern Babel.
