SONIC_MAPPINGS_by_Bill_Fontana (please listen on headphones for the optimum experience) SONIC MAPPINGS is an immersive sound sculpture that is born from the relationship between MAXXI, Zaha Hadid’s architecture, and the city of Rome. Starting from the Roman aqueduct of the Acqua Vergine, which enters the historic quarter of the city from the East and supplies some of its most beautiful fountains, including the Trevi Fountain, the artist has mapped the multiple sounds of the aqueduct, capturing the sounds produced by the water as it flows through the underground tunnels and fountains. SONIC MAPPINGS is a musical collection of the acoustic, harmonic and rhythmical qualities of the water in movement through different places and times. It is a listening environment in which to immerse oneself, with a musical vocabulary that connects the museum with the ancient acoustic heart of Rome.

Rather, notions of awareness, identity, agency and embodiment become problematic. Just as a physical body has been exposed as inadequate, empty and involuntary, so simultaneously the ECA becomes seductive with its uncanny simulation of real-time recognition and response.

SonntagRund-Funk-Empfangs-Saal For large dipole antennas and loop antennas in combination with a custom ELF-Wave-Space-Mixer, custom ELF frequency shifting receivers and other long wave receivers. sound reproduction: quadraphonic full range sound system When Heinrich Hertz saw sparks firing between the ends of a looped wire during an experiment in his darkened laboratory, and thereby realizing Maxwell's theorized electromagnetic wave, he had no idea yet for a purpose of this discovery. It was however only nine years later that morse code was 'sparked' around and just some more years that music was transmitted by means of transmitters. Radio was primarily developing as a live medium. For Rund-Funk-Empfangs-Saal the idea of the radio hall is being inverted. Edwin van der Heide and Jan-Peter E.R.
TOUR TOUR places the question of vocal work and breath center stage. A small platform is the setting for a solo, completely based on the sound and gestures made by the dancer. Wheezing, laughter and other organic sounds are exuded at the heart of an open stage. David Wampach is choreographer to his own voice, handling his breath with care and allowing his body to play with the sounds induced by his imagination. An uneasy sound portrait unfolds in TOUR. Cinema’s 10 scariest robots Whether a dystopian robotic dictatorship or a spunky steel-faced sidekick, artificial intelligence has had a place on our screens in cult films like Stanley Kubrick's murderous space machine HAL and Ridley Scott's scarily human-like androids in Alien (1979). A recent addition to the A.I canon and short film we premiered is Gloria, a film which sees a distribution plant worker, monitored constantly by a female automated voice, edging closer to the deadlier big bad corporation and robot boss. Check out director Liam Fay-Fright’s top ten A.I machines on film. “This is what happens when Moore’s law gets ahold of Video+,” says Fay-Fright.
