The Kenyan Diaspora Voices: The Role of Emerging Technology in Radio

The Kenya immigrant population is frequently nostalgic and constantly retell stories of their homeland. The American culture is a culture shock and can energize or stifle an immigrant. Survival and eventual success in the US depends on perseverance and most importantly, the support system. The One Mic Show is an outlet for East Africans to discuss their experiences abroad and serve as a way for the immigrants not to feel overwhelmed. Humphrey Muturi is the brainchild behind The One Mic Show and can be caught on the Internet giving advice and addressing issues affecting the Kenyan Diaspora community.

Reliquaries and Afrofuturisms

Public sculptor and new media artist Andrew Scott welcomes us in his workshop where he creates his reliquaries that may be perceived differently in daylight or darkness. The laser cut relief sculpture functions as a traditional sculpture by day, with light playing across the faceted surface. By night however, projection mapping brings the work’s subject matter into clarity, as the large face becomes a death mask referencing recent killings of unarmed African American men (for example African American men who lost their lives in tragic encounters with the police in 2014). A reliquary is a receptacle used to hold, display and keep sacred relics. The form and spirit of this work is directly informed by the reliquary figures of the Kota People in Gabon. An excellent opportunity to share ideas about stakes of power, aesthetics, remix of traditional art and globalization.

Mike Winters - Sonification of Emotion

To quote Mike Winters from the "Project Description" of his Masters Thesis "Strategies for Continuous Auditory Display of Arousal and Valence" in which he states "Sound is capable of profound emotional experiences: one need look no further than the importance of music in film. Sonification is field of research interested in the use of sound to convey information in general, but what happens when the data is emotion?" This discussion scratches the surface of this research and starts the dialog regarding the fuzzy intersection of Art and Science that is presented when researching the techniques associated with affective computing when using data to drive emotional content systematically.

Here is an extended conversation regarding a broad range of topics relative to sonification including the types and definitions of listening relative to sonification practices as well as a discussion of the blurry space between sound art practice and functional scientific purpose with sonification. Notes on pointers to some of Dr. Grond's work here:

This audio visual installation was commissioned for the exhibition The Islands of Benoît Mandelbrot Fractals, Chaos, and the Materiality of Thinking. This work reflects on the role of drawing in nonlinear science—connecting performativity, space, and creative thought processes. It investigates at the same time questions of the representation of dynamical systems as differential equations. In this video you canhear the sounds of drawing being made with a pencil. The varying speeds and pressures that characterize this kind of sound are manipulated via filters, playback speeds, and sound effects based on the lines produced by certain nonlinear equations. Synchronized to these sounds are visual representations of the equations, which change their shades according to the actual state of the selected dynamical system. Listening to the intimate sonic experience and watching the visually changing formula allows one to connect with the dynamical properties of the systems.

Safety Certificate is a musical performance based on axle box sensor data from high-speed trains. The original purpose of this data is to provide a basis for the assessments of the mechanical aspects of train safety durimng the homologation process. In this performance, the data, which represents dynamical processes in the sub frequent domain and below the audible range, are converted into sound through audification. The sound that is generated live during the performance is manipulated through the Manta control interface, which allows for the convenient layering of 48 different timbres. Safety Certificate was premiered at Seconde Nature in Aix-en-Provence in March 2010 during the Sonification symposium – What Where How Why, organized by Locus Sonus . On the left you will hear excerpts of a the recording from a performance for 8 channels in a stereo downmix.

Special thanks to Fabian Schmid from PJM for the data and Till Bovermann for Manta instructions. I used Alberto DeCampo's SuperCollider class as software interface to the Manta.

Lets Play:  Curating Video Game Griticism on Critical Distance

Although "Let’s Plays" have been around and popular for at least half a decade, little critical study exists on them not only in terms of their existence as a medium, but also in terms of the publishing potential the medium offers. Jon Ippolito and Lindsey Joyce discuss these new forms of criticism of video games which are published on the site Critical Distance (www.critical-distance.com) for which Joyce is a curator.

Margaret Schedel and the Sounds of Science

Margaret Schedel is an Associate Professor of Composition and Computer Music at Stony Brook University. Through her work, she explores the relatively new field of Data Sonification, generating new ways to perceive and interact with information through the use of sound. From a longer in depth article athttp://soundstudiesblog.com/2014/10/09/sounds-of-science-the-mystique-of-sonification/ Dr. Schedel states: "In the current fascination with sonification, the fact that aesthetic decisions must be made in order to translate data into the auditory domain can be obscured. Headlines such as “Here’s What the Higgs Boson Sounds Like” are much sexier than headlines such as “Here is What One Possible Mapping of Some of the Data We Have Collected from a Scientific Measuring Instrument (which itself has inaccuracies) Into Sound.” To illustrate the complexity of these aesthetic decisions, which are always interior to the sonification process, I focus here on how my collaborators and I have been using sound to understand many kinds of scientific data." We talk at length about these general topics.

The Black Body Under Construction: The Hottentot Then and Now

In this podcast, Edleeca and Poe unpack the theoretical underpinnings at work in Kim Kardashian's attempt to "break the Internet." Exploring the historical and scientific contexts within which black racial constructions of difference evolved, they debate the relevance of these contexts and their employment in justifying past, and present, models of behavioral and sexual deviance.

Steigler on Enabling the Improbable

Steigler and Tron discuss the idea of improbable events, the singular un-calculable event. In our society the singular is being converter into the particular ( algorithms that predict user behavior based on their profiles in a given system have no interest in the individual as a whole). The digital economy depends on predictable, calculable, behaviors of users. Big Data approaches rely on analytic approaches which are incapable of creating truths that depend on intuition built on individual experience- understanding and reason cannot be conflated. This requires 'de-automating' the processes, and creating negentropy by injecting effort through an Art of Hypercontrol. This creates a quasi-causality (Deleuze) by breaking the causal chain. Stiegler speculates on the coming transformation of the economy as extended automatisation eliminates systematically classic employment. The Art of Hypercontrol seeks to establish an ecology of the improbable.

Frank Malina: Ideas about Art and Science and Art and Techology

Artist and curator Ewen Chardronnet and Art Historian Fabrice Lapelletrie discuss the work of Frank Malina. They mention the importance of the work of Theremin, Wilfred and other artists interested in the connections between sound and images in the 20s and 30s. The role of the cultural imagination as a science driver is developed, as well as how imagination intervenes in scientific discovery with the work of mathematician Cedric Villani for instance. Chardronnet reads from a letter of Frank Malina from 1946 which discusses ideas of deep connections between the arts and sciences and the idea of 'inherent rightness". Lapelletrie discusses the work of experimental psychologist Albert Michotte.

Stiegler on the Need to Develop "Cooperatives of Disciplines"

Bernard Stiegler and Colette Tron expand on the ideas of the development of an art of hypercontrol, where artists could develop systems of 'retro-action' on the whole earth system to avoid the disasters of the anthropocene. The art of hypercontrol is a political question, which reflects on the technological condition and converts concern into action. Steigler expands on Deleuze's ideas of converting the wound into a remedy. All technologies are inherently both solutions and causes of problems. Stiegler and Tron discuss their the idea of developing 'coops of disciplines" to invent new instruments of cooperation for an economy of negentropie. Steigler refers to his MOOC systemhttp://pharmakon.fr/wordpress/ .

Frank Malina and the Cultural Appropriation of Science and Technology

Art Historian Fabrice Lapelletrie and Artist and Curator Ewen Chardronnet discuss Frank Malina's art philosophy and how artists must appropriate the scientific landscapes and technologies of their time to create truly contemporary art forms. Chardronnet discusses his interest in artistic experimentation in the context of space exploration. He details his mounting of an exhibition around the work of Theremin and other engineers in Russia who created the first sound and image synthesisers as exemple of this movement before the war, and how the work of Frank Malina as an artist and engineers ties to this tradition. They discuss the artists who have filed patents as part of a long art and technology tradition.

Bernard Stiegler on Art for the Society of Hyper Control

(In french) French philosopher Bernard Stiegler and art critic Colette Tron discuss the emergence of a society of hypercontrol as an evolution from Deleuze's development of the society of control and Foucault's concept of the society of surveillance. New algorithms using user profiling anticipate user needs and actions and thus channel their behavior in the desired directions of the internet companies.He draws on Chris Anderson that language translation algorithms no longer draws for instance on the expertise of linguists but just on pattern recognition ( the end of theory). Stiegler speculates as to whether in the anthropocene era the conditions can be created so that groups of internauts can develop an 'art of hypercontrol' and an economy of negative entropy to counteract climate change and other impacts.
