BIORHYTHM: music and the body

Thumbnail

Music isn’t always about hearing and listening; this installation is an experience that enables you to feel sound. Transducers pressed against your body deliver an 8-channel soundtrack throughout the capsule. The highly immersive nature of the piece takes you inside the artists body.

Sonic Bed is an instrument you play by lying and moving around in it. It is the central pin in “music for bodies” research and was awarded a Distinction in Digital Musics at Prix Ars Electronica. It is a sonic and social experiment exploring our perception of sound. Subtle, dynamic, at times beyond hearing, Sonic Bed plays music to feel rather than just listen to. This interface enables the maker to literally draw and record sounds through the 12-channel sound system hidden under the mattress and side panels while lying in it. The bed explores our very personal relationship with music. Imagine a tank full of sound—slip inside for a sonic dip.

Our two ears enable us to detect the direction of sound, helping create spatial awareness in the world around us. Using a binaural head placed remotely from the visitor, spatial sounds are transmitted back to headphones, allowing the listener to have remote spatial awareness.

The Reality Inspectors is a group of artists who want to build educational, interactive technology that’s fun to use. We welcome anyone who wants to join us. There’s only a couple pre-requisites. First, you have to agree that we’re going to use the work we do to teach science to kids; that means we’ll probably give away the art (especially the software) to schools for free. Second, you have to have some game. We rely on galleries, museums and the like to feature our work to advance it; that means all the work has to be professional caliber.

Javier Jaimovich is a researcher from Santiago, Chile, interested in the development of new digital musical instruments. After completing his BA in Music Technology at Universidad de Chile in 2004, Javier was offered a position as Teaching Assistant in the same University, where he worked during 3 years before leaving to pursue an MA in Sonic Arts at the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) at Queen’s University Belfast. Currently, Javier holds a lecturing position (with leave) at Universidad de Chile, where he is expected to return after finishing his postgraduate studies. In Belfast he completed his MA, studying topics as psychoacoustics, surround sound, programming for musical applications and interactive performance systems (Ground Me!). For his dissertation he specialized in pattern recognition of physiological signals in music performers.

Gregory Lasserre and Anais met den Ancxt are two contemporary artists who work together as a duo with the name Scenocosme. They Live in France. They use interactive art, music and architecture in order to create evolutionary and interactive artwork. With multiple forms of expression, they invite the spectator to be in the centre of musical or choreographic collective performances. They also explore invisible relationships with our environment. They can feel energetic variations of living beings, and they design interactive stagings where spectators share sensory and amazing experiences.

Following many years in the dark depths of the music business, Niall eventually emerged into the sunlight to teach sound engineering and DJ skills, as well as kick starting music technology projects for urban youth. This led him to SARC in Belfast where he became a Master of Sonic Arts and began to focus on biosignals as a means of human-computer interaction. His PhD research continues this exploration and applies it in the fields of music, emotion, interactive art, interface design and assistive technologies.

Maurizio Martinucci (aka TeZ) is an Italian interdisciplinary artist and producer, living and working in Amsterdam, who has collaborated with, amongst others, Scanner, Kim Cascone, Taylor Deupree, Honor Harger, Luca Spagnoletti and Domenico Sciajno. He uses technology as a means to explore perceptual effects and the relationship between sound, light and space. He focuses primarily on generative compositions with spatialized sound for live performances and installations. In his works he adopts custom developed software and hardware, featuring original techniques of sonification and visualization to investigate vibrational phenomena. In recent years his research has extended to the ideation and creation of specific architectural structures and unconventional sound and light propagation methods to enhance immersivity.
