NoTours for Satellites
Donnerstag, 14. Juni 2012, 14.00 - open end
*NoTours* proposes an augmented aurality experience. In other words, you can add a new layer of reality to your place. You can leave messages, tell stories, create geolocated concerts or just share your thoughts.
NoTours permits a listener to enter and investigate a musical composition as though it were a physical structure.
By attaching instruments, voices, sampled sounds and generated effects in layers upon a landscape, a unique means of listening to music can be designed.
A combination of sounds - composed and distributed virtually around a place - with GPS data about the listener's location and movement recreate the music in a unique way for each listener.
noTours can be been used in diverse ways to augment and shift the way we hear the sounds of a place. You can leave messages, tell stories about the surroundings or build a musical composition invisibly into a landscape.
*NoTours* is a project by Escoitar.org that allows editing a place with sounds. This means that you can attach sounds to a territory and that later, when you go physically to that place you can listen to them. The trick is using our noTours Android Application that detects your location (via GPS) and plays your audios exactly in the place where you decided.
For this special workshop, noTours has been adapted in a way that you can attach sounds to the real time location of any satellite (real or virtual) so when it passes over your head audience will be able to listen to your audios... for any place on the surface of the Earth!
Come and see how this hack works, experiment with satellites and sounds, and leave your messages attached to a satellite!
