Cod.Act - Accueil 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.

A. 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.)

LAb[au] laboratory for Architecture and Urbanism 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)

Habbyshaw Heart Chamber Orchestra: Playing Music (Literally) from the Heart Heart Chamber Orchestra [] 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.
