IIE, Interactive Infrasonic Installation, Reinhard Gupfinger, interactive_infrasonic_environment.jpg
IIE is an interactive acoustic installation through which Reinhard Gupfinger researches infrasounds, that is, those sounds that, having a frequency less than 20/16 Hertz (20/16 cycles per second), are below the audible threshold of the human ear. While the ear is insensitive to those sounds, the human body can nevertheless perceive
them as vibrations. It is this possibility that the Austrian artist explores in this work, raising awareness of this relatively unknown curiosity. In fact, infrasounds are extremely common in nature, since they are emitted by atmospheric phenomena, such as thunder and wind, and by some animals (whales, elephants, etc.), which use them to communicate over distances.

Ich sag nur: Wir lieben Lebensmittel! “For Improv Everywhere’s latest mission, six undercover actors burst into song in a grocery store in Queens. Three minutes and lots of silly choreography later, they returned to their roles as shoppers and stock boys. The mission was filmed with hidden robotic, lipstick, and wearable cameras.” Via

At the end of September I had the pleasure of a surprise visit from David Gildiner, Ryan Janzen and nessie the singing water snake.  Developed by Steve Mann, the Hydraulophone is public art and the world's first water-based musical instrument. It is designed to challenge our conceptions of public art and people's interaction with it because it exists simultaneously as art and also as an interactive instrument anyone can play.  It literally makes music from water. The keys of the piano are replaced with water jets. When you interact with the water flowing from its jets you create music - each jet is a different key - Hydraulikeys.  Every other instrument uses only two of the three states of matter - gas and solids. This introduces the third state of matter to the orchestra - water.

Upgrade! NY continues its series on open source as it relates to activism and creative practice with a conversation between Larisa Mann and Karl Fogel followed by a DJ set by Larisa Mann (aka DJ Ripley). The discussion will examine how Jamaican music has developed in the absence of an effective copyright regime, how technological and social conditions affect the music and musicians, and then will compare this to the open source movement today. They'll look at how changes in technology and social convention affect music, software, and culture in general.
