Locustream Tuner Installation NOW ON

Audio streams are captured by open microphones put in place by people who
are participating in the project from around the world, these are not
playlists or field recordings, simply the local sound environment which is
encoded & uploaded in real time.

The installation consists of a pair of wires stretched the length of the
exhibition space with a small ball threaded on them. The position of the
ball can be altered by the public acting like a tuner, an audio promenade
where the user slides there way through a series of remote audio locations.

Locus Sonus is a research group specialized in audio art (École Supérieure
d’Art d’Aix-en-Provence, École Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Nice Villa
Arson). Our objective is to experiment and evaluate the innovative and
transdisciplinary nature of audio art forms in a lab-type context. We are
are also concerned with in the communal, collective or multi-user aspects
inherent to many emerging audio
practices and which necessitate working as a group. Two main themes define
this research - audio in it’s relation to space and networked audio systems.
The "Lab" proposes a process combining practical artistic experimentation
and critical evaluation in a group context.

Locus Sonus Lab: Nicolas Bralet / Sabrina Issa / Nicolas Maigret / Esther
Salmona / Lydwine van der Hulst / Brett Balogh (Exchange Student)
Coordination: Jérôme Joy / Anne Roquiny / Peter Sinclair
