[autochamber] 2004-08
VIDEO DOCUMENTATION | 7:00 | 6.8Mb
[autochamber] is a Fluxus sonification of algorithmic sketches based on ambient recordings and the carbon data overall change from August to December 2003, on the Konza Prairie, a tallgrass prairie preserve in eastern Kansas. A playful diversion into Cagean aesthetics, in which Henry Warwick and I explore semi random selection as a data to sound composition strategy. Special thanks to Jay Ham for his insight: 'when I look out at the prairie, I see vast fields of numbers rising."

Collaborative assistance
Jay Ham, Ph.D, researches field-scale carbon budgets, global climate change, instrumentation development, effects of elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide on energy and mass transport, turbulent transport from sparse vegetation and soil-plant-water relations.

Henry Warwick works with a variety of materials ranging from the completely digital realm of computer music to acoustic instruments such as the Armenian duduk. He teaches sound systems and communication theory at Ryerson University, Toronto.

Exhibitions
Sonic Residues, Curated by Christa Erickson, Margaret Schedel, and Zabet Patterson, SAC Gallery Exhibition, April 24 - May 12, 2008

Sonic Residues is concerned with sound as a medium of artistic expression encompassing sculpture, collage, drawing and sonic installation. This gallery show and concert presents a cross-section of contemporary sound art and computer music to the Stony Brook campus. Sonic Residues develops subtle and complex spaces of sonic experience, organized loosely around the theme of the remainders left by vibrations in time and space. It articulates a range of interfaces between individuals, collectives, environments and technologies of reproduction—from wire recorders to bent circuits to mobile telephones.
