What do you call a home that can sit on small or large bodies of calm water, is eco-friendly, solar-powered, and made from 98% recycled materials.

Water Nest 100: An Eco-Friendly, Solar-Powered Home Made With Near 100% Recycled Materials

I call it amazing, but the design group, Giancarlo Zema, called it the Water Nest 100. Giancarlo Zema is based in Rome and specializes in semi-submerged architectural structures, marine parks, floating habitats, yacht and interior design. They designed the Water Nest 100 for EcoFloLife, a company based in London that manufactures and sells eco-friendly floating residential structures. I think they hit a big winner with this model. The top of the Water Nest is constructed with 60 square meters of amorphous photovoltaic panels (solar panels) that can generate 4 kWp. kWp stands for kilowatt peak or the amount of power the solar panels can produce in ideal conditions.

The Sound of Empty Space - Everyday Listening - Sound Art, Sound Installations, Sonic Inspiration. Feedback is a phenomenon which is not uncommon in sound art.

The Sound of Empty Space - Everyday Listening - Sound Art, Sound Installations, Sonic Inspiration

Steve Reich’s Pendulum Music used swinging microphones over speakers to create different tones in a certain rhythm, already back in 1968. There is something primeval about feedback, the way it can run out of control and become chaotic. Because of that, it’s no wonder there are still a lot of artists working with it. (all photos by Emily Gan) With his new series of works called The Sound of Empty Space, composer & media artist Adam Basanta explores relationships between microphones, speakers, and surrounding acoustic environments through controlled, self-generating microphone feedback. In The loudest sound in the room experienced very quietly, an endless feedback loop between microphone, public address system amplifier, and speaker cone is enclosed within a soundproof aquarium. The notion of amplification systems as self-generating sound producers is further developed in the piece Pirouette.

Scientists Are Making Music with Slime Mold and Whale Songs. Down on the southwest coast of England, the Peninsula Arts Contemporary Music Festival recently celebrated its tenth birthday.

Scientists Are Making Music with Slime Mold and Whale Songs

Run in collaboration with Plymouth University and the Interdisciplinary Center for Computer Music Research (ICCMR) which is housed there, the festival is an epicenter for musical experimentation and research into far-out sonification and musification techniques. This year's theme is biomusic, a niche field of centered around biological processes that inform and create musical compositions, be they artificially intelligent virtual whales jamming with a saxophonist, a biocomputer run on slime mold doing a duet on the piano, or data collated from British woodland ecosystems turning into music. 雨音の由来.

Vocal Vibrations: Expressive Performance for Body-Mind Wellbeing

Vocal Vibrations explores the relationships between human physiology and the resonant vibrations of the voice. The voice is an instrument everyone possesses. It is incredibly individual, infinitely expressive, and intimately linked to the physical form. Stephen Barrass – Portfolio. The art of sonification - An interview with Jonas Gruska.

The art of sonification - An interview with Jonas Gruska

Studied at Institute of Sonology in The Hague (Netherlands) and at Music Academy in Cracow (Poland). Works mostly with computers and electronics as a musician and sound artist under his civil name, or as Mrkva or Binmatu. He has authored interactive poems and visual performances, and is also a developer of open source computer instruments, artistic software and hardware. Gave workshops on city sonification, printed circuit board design, and programming for artists. Performed and exhibited his work in Belgium, Czech Republic, Finland, Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia; on festivals such as Kraak (Belgium), Audio Art (Poland), Mélos-Ethos (Slovakia) or Next (Slovakia). You describe yourself as a sonologist where composing means writing code and writing algorithms is writing music, and yet you seem to apply an empiric approach rather than a scientific one when creating specific works.

Guest article by Andreas Jonsson DSP beginnings Last year, I undertook a one-year Masters in Sound for Moving Image at the Glasgow School of Art, which got me properly introduced to the wonderful world of DSP and the seemingly endless possibilities of Max/MSP.

Designing Ambiences in Max/MSP

Having dabbled briefly in Pure Data and coming from a background of computer programming, it didn’t take long before it got me completely hooked. The first thing I created was a variation on a sampler keyboard, a sort of homage to my trusty Casio SK-1 and Yamaha VSS-30 keyboards. In doing so, it really opened my eyes to how endless the possibilities could be with DSP and how the only real limitation seems to be ones imagination. All : Kassel Jaeger.

As had happened across Hollywood, Andrews was blown away by Richard Kelly’s idea.
