Together with colleagues from Theatre Film and Television Department and Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI-Y) at the University of York I organised The Conference on Sonification of Health and Environmental Data. Funded by Wellcome Trust and Centre for Chronic Diseases and Disorders (C2D2) at the University of York conference gathered experts from the fields of sonification, sound design, health sciences and environmental science to evaluate and discuss novel sonic ways to engage with data.
At the conference apart from guest speakers from IRCAM, KTH Stockholm there was an installation by Mark Fell (Sonic Uncertainties the Multidimensional Case), films, multimedia presentations. As part of the conference , I performed together with Space F!ght and Dr Kevin Hicks(SEI-Y) Ozone data sonification and visualisation set.
Sonification is concerned with displaying data in sonic form so that listeners (experts and/or non-experts) can perceive and engage with the structures and the properties …
Space Fight and Sound and Music are co-producing the Sci-Fi UK tour in November. New Space F!ghts set is inspired by sci-fi novels from P.K. Dick and S. Lem. Texts are voice samples of Anna Edgington. These are influencing the improvisation and providing structure for the new pieces. To emphasize 3D effect of the visualisations Space F!ght is using a custom made modular scenography for visualisations/3D mapping. Scenography modules are acting as projection screens made of especially designed models.
During the forthcoming tour each show will also contain a piece made in collaboration with Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS). In this piece satellite ozone data controls the improvisation and 3D visualisations. Space F!ght is using ground level ozone data, which is the best representation of the ozone that harms human health. Since Ozone’s impact is all about location, …
