Student Showcase: Sonic Networks in Urban Areas
See how School of the Arts students are taking their ideas to the next level.
Working towards a PhD in Composition, Ian Costabile is interested in interactive sonic art, sound spatialisation and field recording.
Sound Graffiti is an on-going project that consists of the use of loudspeakers, sensors and transceivers to create sonic networks inside urban areas. This is being developed as part of practice-based research in composition that investigates new design for sonic interactivity.
Sound Graffiti: Urban Harmony #1
In Liverpool, perpendicular to Bold Street, there is an alley emitting a loud exhaust noise. As a solution, the artist has installed a loudspeaker containing harmonising material.
Sound Graffiti: Technogenesis
In this project, the artist has developed the loudspeakers by hand and designed a special multichannel circuit for the purposes of sound graffiti.
