Sound Samples From Inhabitants

Site Visit + Audio Synthesis

Here is an image of my latest site visit. I got a chance to attach a prototype and listen to how it sounded in the space. Overall I was satisfied: “quiet” sounds become really loud and very noticable, although loud sounds (such as the elevator ring) were indistinguishable from the source of the sound itself. This is something I am just dealing with as of now until I get better amplifiers or other ideas to increase volume.

Some updates (site + speakers)

I have gotten permission to use to the Liberty Building! I made my first “official” visit there today and took some pictures and recorded some sounds with my DR-100 built-in directional mics and tested my contact mic rubber unit. Here is documentation of that:

Site Plan

Here is a preliminary site plan (drawn from observation not measurements). The idea is that I will begin to diagram over this plan new synthesized movements and social spaces as a consequence of my installation. There is an existing movement through the space which will be visualized and then compared to the new synthesized circulation. More to come…

Site + Sound updates

It’s been a while, but I have finally decided on a site for this thesis. It is the Liberty Building in downtown Buffalo (Google map) (image)

What are the elements within this space that I am most interested in?

Rhythmanalysis – images

I recently made a post about a rhythmanalysis of both the University Station subway stop as well as Knox Hall on North Campus at UB here: http://adamlaskowitz.com/blog/?p=282

Here are 2 images I made trying to visually depict the rhythms experienced at the two sites:

University Station

Knox Hall

Rhythmanalysis

Here are 2 attempts of a rhythmanalysis done by recording the sounds of a space as well as recording my perception of the rhythms in the space.

1) Knox Hall – UB North campus – 2nd floor sitting in between room 104 and 20.

2) University Station – UB South campus – Subway stop

KNOX – 100% speed

KNOX – 600% speed

UNIVERSITY STATION – 100% speed

UNIVERSITY STATION – 600% speed
