  • Halsey Burgund | ROUND
    collaboration that constantly changes the landscape of the Web Why should experiencing art be any different ROUND probes this question by using networking and streaming audio technologies to create a hybrid of the traditional museum audio tour and a participatory blog ROUND is an audio installation that seeks spoken voice contributions from museum visitors and uses them as part of an evolving musical composition intended to be listened to while viewing the work in the galleries This interactive audio experience allows visitors to select from a diverse range of voices sharing their perspectives about the exhibitions including artists curators educators and visitors and to add their own responses to the mix Just as a dialogue about a work of art is forever unfolding the flow of music changes continually as a result of being created using custom compositional algorithms The title ROUND alludes to both a musical round a song in which two or more voices sing the same melody but in an offset fashion and the age old Arthurian legend about the Knights of Camelot who sat at a round table affording no one person a privileged position Equality of opinion and the opportunity for two way dialogue are core ideas of this project As participating visitors view the exhibitions their comments are collected in a database of recordings and subsequently incorporated into the piece in real time Thus there is a continual loop of opinion and emotional response all contained within a musical work Audio Samples ROUND sample Gordon Cheung Audio MP3 Audio MP3 ROUND sample The Aldrich Audio MP3 Audio MP3 ROUND sample ROUND Audio MP3 Audio MP3 ROUND on Weekend America NPR Audio MP3 Audio MP3 Technology In keeping with the open and collaborative nature of the project ROUND was built primarily using open source software

    it can be installed in a variety of different spaces and configurations The custom software was developed in Max MSP and runs on either a Mac or a PC In order to participate in Beat Vox participants will first use the microphone to record themselves saying whatever they want for up to 20 seconds They can then listen to what they have recorded and either re record or hit the GO button With the GO instruction the software analyzes the audio recording listening for onsets of words and certain volume and pitch changes which will determine how the recording is sliced up The result is a number of short clips of audio anything from short phrases to words to syllables to phonemes based on the particular way the person speaks and the tuning of the slicing algorithm These audio clips are then used as if they were each a percussive sound such as a cymbal a snare drum or bass drum and are played back rhythmically to form a beat of spoken human voice The software is programmed to randomly create beats based on certain parameters and also has several user interface controls which enable the user to change what they hear by for example requesting new rhythms changing the tempo or pitch etc Playback is in surround sound with different audio clips moving spatially around the participant There is no additional audio added to the mix all sounds are taken from the spoken voice recording but when treated in this way many of the resulting sounds are not readily identifiable as spoken words Participants are also able to capture up to 30 seconds of their remixed voice recording and email it to themselves if they like what they hear They can choose to share their recording with other Beat

    both the living and the dead history and the present I wanted to explore the cemetery s contemplative nature as well as the relationships that various cemetery dwellers have to their surroundings My intent was to create music that evokes my own personal feelings about spending time within the borders of Forest Hills through the words and voices of other cemetery dwellers Over the course of several months in early spring 2006 I interviewed 26 people in the cemetery both visitors and employees I used these recorded interviews in tandem with traditional instruments to compose the piece For listeners the music and voices will mix with the ambient sounds smells and sights they encounter as they make their way through the cemetery on paths of their choosing We performed the piece live in Forsyth Chapel at Forest Hills at the end of the exhibit Audio Samples Part I 5 55 Audio MP3 Audio MP3 Part II 2 15 Audio MP3 Audio MP3 Part III 3 12 Audio MP3 Audio MP3 Part IV 9 17 Audio MP3 Audio MP3 Part V 4 23 Audio MP3 Audio MP3 Additional Information 104K website at Forest Hills Educational Trust Boston Globe Review of Dwelling
