att_482 SoundGarten


The Soundgarten is a tangible interface that enables children to create their own sound environment by manipulating physical toy objects. They can use predefined sound samples, record sound samples of their environment and modify and arrange the different elements in sound scenarios, choose volume pitch and apply sound effects.

Soundgarten consists of mushroom-formed items that represent sound samples. There are small flower- and leave-shaped attributes, which can be plugged onto the "mushroom" to modify the sound. A radio-wave microphone embedded in a shuffle-shaped device can record sound samples when a special recording mushroom is plugged into it. Last but not least, the "flower-patch", i.e. the central part of Soundgarten, allows the sounds to be activated and arranged.

The Soundgarten interface works in combination with software that runs on any standard personal computer. With a wireless connection the PC works completely detached from the interface itself and thus remains invisible to the user. According to the concept of invisible and embedded computing, the user's attention is centred on the interaction space and not on the technical details.

att_483 Audium.org


Audium is the only theatre of its kind in the world, pioneering the exploration of space in music. The theatre's 169 speakers bathe listeners in sounds that move past, over, and under them. "Sound sculptures" are performed in darkness in the 49-seat theatre.

When the concept of AUDIUM began taking shape in the late 1950's, space was a largely unexplored dimension in music composition. The composer who suspected space capable of revealing a new musical vocabulary found his pursuit blocked by the inadequacy of audio technology and performance spaces.

Because of an unusual combination of art and technology -- AUDIUM's creators, composer Stan Shaff and equipment designer Doug McEachern, were both professional musicians -- AUDIUM's conception and realization were able to evolve jointly. AUDIUM is the only theatre anywhere constructed specifically for sound movement, utilizing the entire environment as a compositional tool.

att[o_0]_052 acoustic mirrors


Standing silent and abandoned, a series of isolated and mysterious concrete structures line the south east coast of England. Known locally as "listening ears", these structures, more properly called acoustic mirrors, are vestiges from great inter-war acoustic experiments to create an early warning system against the possibility of an airborne invasion across the English Channel.

The acoustic mirrors tilted their faces to the sky and collected sound in giant concrete dishes. They were operated by trained listeners that endured cold nights at their listening posts, entombed in concrete bunkers, or high on listening platforms in front of the mirrors, to pick up distant noises from the sky.

The acoustic mirrors were never used in wartime - the invention of radar and the increasing speed of aeroplanes rendered them obsolete within ten years of their erection. Almost seventy years later, these now forgotten experiments have become the focus and the inspiration for a groundbreaking international art project - an attempt to re-invent this redundant technology for the 21st Century. [...]

Visitors to the mirrors will be able to climb up to a listening platform in front of the mirror, in the manner of the original listeners at the historic mirrors. Rather than straining for the sound of distant aeroplane engines, people will be listening to the sounds of the sea, as well as for voices speaking to them from across the Channel.

A new advanced acoustic technology will allow transmitted sounds from the other mirror to be audible only at a particular focal point in front of the dish - focused at the small area around the listener's head. The person standing at the focus point will hear a complete “holographic” binaural sound image which will appear to be coming from the air all around them.

The binaural sound image will reproduce the sound in three dimensions, so that the listener will feel as if they are actually standing in the place where the voice was speaking. The transmitted sound will mix with the sounds of the sea and the Channel, which will be collected and amplified by the acoustic effects of the dish itself. [...]

BLOCKFISH is a versatile compressor with countless ways to shape the incoming audio.
Unlike many other digital compressors, BLOCKFISH has 'soul'. It likes to bite, but it can be tamed easily once you've learned how to use its potential.

SPITFISH is a dead-easy to use de-esser, aimed mainly at mono or stereo vocal tracks. Just like classic analog de-essers, this unit dynamically filters out harsh, annoying s-like sounds that would otherwise 'spit' in your face.

FLOORFISH is a simple expander / gate device, easy to set up and offers a broad variety of processing, ranging from slight expansion, backgound noise attenuation to extreme gating effects.
What's different from similar units is the ability to scan the source and adjust the transistion curve accordingly.

Available for PC/Win & Mac OS hosts.
