Embodied Sound explores Sound Art that emphasizes and explores the physicality of sound.
You may approach this through the physical presence of tangible or tactile modse of sound making, through some form of wearable sound art, an extension of your work with site sound that furthers
this exploration of the physical, tactile or corporeal presence.
Your embodied sound work may be inspired by the piezo and DIY mini-amplifier that you made, our circuit bending explorations , the sensor activated possibilities introduced via the arduino or a divergent interest that you bring to this project.
Inspirations for Embodied Sound may come from:
Iannis Xenakis's Concrete Ph
... or Ed Osborn's Night Music
Kelly Dobson's Blendie and her work with machines as companion species.. ... or her Wearable Organ series
featuring Scream Body
Kanta Horio's experiments with electro magnetism, teapots and more.
Walter Kitundu's experimental instuments including the phonoharp
... and Ocean Edge Device.
Playful new instruments such as Gili Weinberg's Beat Bugs and the musical shapers
href="http://www.cc.gatech.edu/%7Egilwein/Shapers.htm" Squeezable that Gil Weinberg and Maggie Orth developed for the Toy Symphony.
Maggie Orth's wearable musical jacket
and Jay Silver's drawdio.
Richard Lerman's sound work with piezo's may be i interesting.
Stephen Vitiello's Speaker Drawings may inspire or his World Trade Center piezo recordings may expand your notions of the contact mike.
Nicolas Collins and Paul D Demarinis
each explore the tangible and the sonic in astounding ways.
Post a sketch of your Embodied Sound idea and then add the documentation of your Embodied Sound work in this category.
Include image and sound files and, if relevant, a video of the the object, space or phenomna.
