E. V. DAY Julian Oliver: Critical Engineering Don’t forget your research Study the areas you plan to buy in and look at their amenities, transport options and any plans for development that might affect your property in future. Find out how prices have moved (or not moved) in different suburbs and the amount of houses for sale. Do visit plenty of properties Take the time to visit a wide range of properties and have a wish list of wants versus needs. Extra parking spaces and a home office may be more critical than water views or an extra bathroom. Don’t blow your budget Banks will often lend you more than you can comfortably pay back, so don’t set your sights too high. Do arrange your finances You need to have your deposit ready immediately if you win at auction, so sort out your finances well in advance. Don’t skip due diligence Even if the agent is rushing you for a sale, make sure you do the groundwork. Do keep a clear head If at all possible, don’t become overly emotional – you need to be prepared to walk away from any house.

Ben Model - live music for silent film Qui détient (vraiment) les clés d’Internet ? C’est l’un des secrets les mieux gardés et comme tous les grands mensonges, il est énorme. Le concept d’une gouvernance globale d’Internet est un mythe: non seulement, le World Wide Web n’est pas autogéré mais il n’est pas si mondial que ça et il est même très américain. Et si en 2014, nul ne peut superviser le contenu du réseau, il existe, en revanche, quatorze "key holders", gardiens des clés, divisés en deux équipes (Est et Ouest). Sans compter sept autres personnes en back-up capables de rebâtir le World Wide Web en cas de défaillance. Dans des data centers aussi sécurisés qu’une centrale nucléaire, les gardiens du temple procèdent ainsi depuis 2010 à de mystérieuses réunions qui nécessitent un quorum d’au moins trois de ces "key holders". Les plombiers d’Internet Ce que contrôle cette clé centrale est le "serveur-racine", ou système des noms de domaines (DNS). « Nous devons d’abord être annoncés et confier nos passeports à des gardes armés…» Anne-Marie, "Crypto officer"

Synesthesia: Beyond the Five Senses by Oyang Teng • (PDF) Gottfried Leibniz once wrote that our sense perceptions are occult qualities, whose familiarity does nothing to render their essential nature more intelligible. Nevertheless, as Leibniz conceded, the study of human perception does yield important truths about that aspect of the physical world represented by our physiology, and the way the mind deploys such physiological functions to construct knowledge of the universe. Long before brain imaging technology showed that even basic perceptual acts involve many different areas of the brain, common observation (and common sense) showed that there is no strict autonomy of any of the senses; rather, they each exist as interconnected aspects in a continuum of perception. So there is a sensuous which is not limited to one single sense. Synesthesia and the Mind’s Eye The Common Sense Additional References: 1.) 2.)

Qu’est-ce qu’un média en 2014 ? Décryptage de la définition proposée par Om Malik, fondateur du site GIGAom et désormais capital-risqueur, qui vient de faire la synthèse dans un article de ce qu’il avait appris sur l’univers des médias au cours de sa carrière de journaliste. Il y décrit en passant ce qu’est un média à notre époque : “tout ce qui retient l’attention“. C’est à mon sens la meilleure définition possible. Pourquoi ? Parce qu’un média n’est plus, comme dans le passé, une entreprise qui publie des contenus sur du papier, des ondes ou des écrans. Simplifié, sous l’effet des technologies numériques, en se démocratisant. (CC) Juan Cristóbal Cobo Mais, de ce fait, tout est également devenu plus complexe. Tous ces concurrents luttent aujourd’hui pour une denrée de plus en plus rare avec la progression de la surinformation : l’attention du public. * Un “shadow competitor” est un produit qui en concurrence un autre sans lui être directement confronté dans la même industrie.

thesystemis | the works of zach lieberman and collaborators Audio-Vision Audio-Vision Audio and Media Technologies Lecture 4 Pedro Rebelo The Three Listening Modes Michel Chion identifies three modes of listening. - Causal Listening “Listening to a sound in order to gather information about its cause (or source)” (Chion p.25). - Semantic Listening Chion defines semantic listening as referring to a code of language; the interpretation of a message. - Reduced Listening Reduced listening has been identified by Pierre Schaeffer as a mode that focuses on sound itself independent of cause and meaning. Reduced listening is closely related to the notion of acousmatic sound (also introduced by Schaeffer but with a history that goes back to Phythagoras). The intention behind acousmatic sound and an acousmatic listening situation is that the listener will be encouraged to focus on sonic properties alone and hence induce reduced listening. The primacy of sound in communication is theorized by Marshall McLuhan. Phythagoras' Footsteps Ambient Sound (Territory-Sound) Internal Sound

It is the heavy-hitting boxing drama that helped inspire Oscar-winning film The Artist. Now Alfred Hitchcock's 1927 silent film The Ring is being spruced up for the big screen and is getting a new score from Mercury Prize-nominated saxophonist Soweto Kinch. The jazz and hip-hop artist has revealed that he is planning to put some "tactfully placed dance loops" to Hitchcock's black-and-white movie. "It's still very much work in progress," admits Kinch, who will present the world premiere of his new score at a screening at the Hackney Empire on 13 July. "There's no point in me crudely trying to reconstruct a silent movie score from that era," he says. Knock-out: A still from Hitchcock's The Ring (1927)

Heart Chamber Orchestra: Playing Music (Literally) from the Heart Heart Chamber Orchestra [heartchamberorchestra.org] is an audio-visual performance during which 12 classical trained musicians control a music composition and a graphical visualization through their personal heartbeats. The musical score is generated in real-time by the heartbeats of the musicians, who read and play this score from a computer screen placed in front of them. As a result, the installation forms a feedback loop in which the music literally "comes from the heart". Technically, each musician is equipped with an ECG (electrocardiogram) sensor. Watch the performance below. See also Heart Songs and Heartbeat Virtual World.

max msp » ZEAL For the past few weeks I’ve been working with Gian Slater and her choir Invenio to produce a new audio-visual work called Luminesce. The concept for the show is an extension of my Concerto for Light Sculpture piece, seven singers are arranged in a line and are projected onto. Each singers voice controls what exactly is projected on to them and Gian has arranged the music in such a way as to create emergent patterns of light across the singers. The show’s debuting next week at The Guild Theater, Melbourne. Book tickets here Facebook event is here For the nerds who like to know what’s happening under the hood, read on. The overall architecture for the show is something like this: each of the singers has a microphone that’s fed into a macbook running Ableton. Luminesce is the first project I’ve used Touch for and coming from Max/MSP I’ve found it super easy to pick up.

Top 25 des plus belles oeuvres sur bouche d’égout Une bouche d'égout, quoi de plus laid ? Il suffit du coup de peinture talentueux de street artistes pour en faire des objets ludiques égayant la rue.
