Locus Sonus  will be in residence between the 15th and the 29th of August in the
USA with two installations and a duplex performance between them. The two
locations will be at the DIGIT Festival, Delaware Valley Arts Alliance &
Roebling Bridge Environmental Arts and at the RIVERFAWN Gallery in New York

Locus Sonus has constructed for this performance 2 IP webcams/parabolic
microphones with which they can hunt for sounds in and around the venue
streaming them simultaneously to the remote location.

In each location laptop performers capture and remix the audio from the mic and
video projectors show what the mobile microphones are capturing. Both mixes are
played in both locations, the musicians responding to their remote counterparts.
The Roebling Bridge will be set up on both sides of the river (the audience will
be on the bridge). The idea being that we can use the local distance to reflect
the remote distance. On the Manhattan side, the performance will take place in
the RIVERFAWN Gallery where they will also use the wire/stream interface as an
instrument to mix and control during the presentation.

Live sounds from around the world (from the locusonus open web mics project)
will also be used as raw material for the concerts.

The Installation at the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance opens on Saturday, August
19th and runs until August 25th

The performance Duplex Roebling Bridge/Manhattan will take place Thursday,
August 24th at RIVERFAWN Gallery, 11 Harrison Street in New York City.

There will also be a physical installation/interface  on view from August 22nd
to the 27th, 12-6pm at RIVERFAWN Gallery.

Audio streams:

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
the communal, collective or multi-user aspects inherent to many emerging audio
practices and which necessitate working as a group. Two main thematics 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. The Locus Sonus Lab is currently
focusing on a process which revolves around the use of multiple audio streams.
The streams which are basically open-mic continually upload chosen soundscapes
or sound environments, as playable material. The way in which we work with
other people to set up and maintain the streams is part of the methodology,
indeed the technology provides the basis to construct a human network.
