NYC SuperCollider

:: 7p -- Tae Hong Park

Presenting works and research with a focus on the technology and aesthetics of the Citygram urban sonification project that he leads from the NYU Steinhardt School of Music as Professor of Music Technology and Composition.

Dr. Park argues that all efforts to "humanize" the city via a scientific
analysis of sound phenomena necessarily begins at the point of musical
awareness -- that even the apparently arbitrary sonic emissions of the
city constitute music, especially insofar as they are generated by the
ebb and flow of social behavior and human need. The system he is
developing generates an analysis of audible and inaudible sound events
using a broad network of distributed, wireless sensors based on custom
mobile device hardware and software.

His presentation is especially relevant in light of current plans in
New York City to replace the traditional grid of payphones with
inter-networked information booths that will naturally extend the
ubiquitous computing perimiter of each individual.

Sound plays an incredible role, though oft unheeded, in our day to day
activity. Projects like Citygram have the potential to elevate the
concerns of acoustic ecology from their role as Cassandra, providing
warnings and useful demographic data after-the-fact, towards a legitimate,
publicly recognized axis of interest in our social, political and
humanistic experience of the city.

    A great group of people interested in furthering everyones understanding and practice with SuperCollider. Highly recommended for anyone interested in generative composition, electronic music and sonic aesthetics.
