And want to see it just about everywhere, on every audio app developer’s website and probably on t-shirts too. I’d wear it.
More deals for black friday.
Not that this is mobile related, but I’m sure that some will be interested in these deals.
An event that I thought might be of interest to a few. I know I posted on it yesterday, but it’s the kind of thing that could get missed. Sadly I can’t make this weekend, but if you do go let me know what it was like.
Here are the details:
The ‘Bridging Sound’ event is of interest to the mobile sound community as it “launches an interdisciplinary research forum dealing with 21st century soundscapes and auditory environments, which have become an exciting focus for artistic, technological, and sociological research.” The focus on bridges puts mobility at the heart this sound studies event, as we tend to encounter bridges while in motion, and many artistic projects in the area have also explored our mobile interactions with bridges. It’s organised by Professor Sally-Jane Norman and Dr Michael Bull.
The event info continues:
“Our urban surroundings and the sites we frequent for work, leisure, consumption and transportation offer scaffolds for new kinds of acoustic architectures. Sonic designs employ and mix platforms ranging from public address systems to intimate messaging. Roles of artists, urban planners, commercial stakeholders, state authorities, and “local bodies” are mobilised by the steadily expanding, yet never-quite-real estate inhabited by sound. Bridging Sound promotes and debates this burgeoning area of contemporary practice. It convenes practitioners and theorists from a range of disciplines to investigate figuratively, metaphorically and theoretically the intersections between sound, architecture and culture.”
The event runs 23-24 November, and I’ll be chairing a session on the Saturday – so would be great to see some of you then!
Here is the program from their website:
