nothing's under them. when in doubt, swell. neither penis nor vagina will do. too ripe. breasts hearken back to the old days. the old days listen in the imperative mode. stone hears stone. oh for swollen breasts. the earth heaves. no, the earth was heaved. nothing's under them. when in doubt, swell.

The Rhythmanalysis Lab is concerned with the observation, representation, and interpretation of rhythms in everyday life. Inspired by the work of Henri Lefebvre, it is a framework for projects, workshops, and investigations at the intersection of urban research, sound, and data science.
Will the (future) rhythmanalyst ... set up and direct a lab where one compares documents: graphs, frequencies and various curves? ... Just as he borrows and receives from his whole body and all his senses, so he receives data from all the sciences: psychology, sociology, ethnology, biology; and even physics and mathematics ... He will come to 'listen' to a house, a street, a town, as an audience listens to a symphony.

On April 21st, Eyebeam's main exhibition space will be transformed into a small village dedicated to creative sound research. Using resources as diverse as atmospheric sensors, ping-pong balls, string instruments, reverberant plates, magnetized wires, cell phones, data hubs, and laughter, participants from Eyebeam's sound research group will convene to run experiments, share original research, develop work in progress, and explore collaborative strategies.Interaction, encounter, and juxtaposition will be emphasized over sound isolation—the idea being that sound is transparent enough to permit a human ecology that transcends the singular focus of the concert format.From 3PM-7PM the public will be invited to witness the results. The day will culminate in a public discussion at 7PM.
