INTRODUCTION


LOCUS SONUS

Locus Sonus audio in art, is a research group whose main aim is to explore
the, ever evolving, relationship between sound, place and usage. In an
Art/Science tradition our research involves experimentation with emerging
audio technologies particularly those relating to sound transmission,
mobilization or  spatialisation.
Maintained by the art schools of Aix en Provence and Bourges in France,
Locus Sonus is concerned with practice driven research and
transdisciplinary approachs to the arts of sound.

Locus Sonus est un laboratoire de recherche dont l’objectif principal est
d’explorer la relation (constamment fluctuante) entre, le son, l’espace et
les usages. Située dans la lignée Arts/Sciences, notre recherche implique
l’expérimentation avec les technologies émergentes relatives au son et
notamment liées à la transmission, à la mobilité et à la spatialisation
audio. Le laboratoire est soutenu par l'École Supérieure d'Art d'Aix en
Provence et l'École Nationale Supérieure d'Art de Bourges. Il comprend une
recherche pratique de création et une approche transdisciplinaire des arts
du son.


LOCUS SONUS SYMPOSIUMS /// LES SYMPOSIUMS LOCUS SONUS


>From the outset in 2005 Locus Sonus Symposiums have maintained an
exceptionally high standard in both artistic and scientific content.
Deliberately restrained in regards to the number of participants they have
succeeded, for each edition, in uniting international experts and
generating lively discussion around a specific question or topic. The Locus
Sonus Symposiums are organized in partnership with the Aix-Marseille
University (AMU)’s sociology lab LAMES and regularly include collaborations
with research groups such as IMéRA, CRESSON, CRiSAP UAL, SARC Queen’s
University Belfast, SAIC Chicago, Laval’s University Quebec to mention just
a few.
The symposium is funded by the French ministries for culture and research.


Depuis 2005, les symposiums Locus Sonus, ont permis de faire converger un
réseau international de chercheurs et d’artistes dont les activités sont à
la pointe des thématiques posées. Le nombre restreint de participants
permet de générer des échanges et des débats fructueux et constructifs et
de répondre à des questions très précises sur un domaine de recherche donné.
Les symposiums sont basés sur une collaboration étroite avec nos
partenaires scientifiques (LAMES Aix-Marseille Université, CRESSON, CRiSAP
UAL, l'IMéRA, SARC Queen’s University Belfast, SAIC Chicago et l'Université
Laval Québec, ainsi que d'autres collaborations ponctuelles scientifiques).
Les symposiums sont financés par des contrats de recherche, annuels et
pluri-annuels (Accord-cadre CNRS/Ministère de la Culture, DRAC PACA).

THEME 2014 AUDIO MOBILITY /// THEMATIQUE 2014 - AUDIO MOBILITE
Audio Mobility.

The fact that computers have become truly portable (smart phones) while
being powerful enough to perform complex calculations in real-time is a
very recent phenomenon. If a system capable of generating and capturing
audio can share a user’s mobility, is the status of that audio changed? Can
there be new forms of audio art that result from mobility?
We propose to consider mobile audio-technology from two points of view.
These can be assimilated to maps and  sounding. In the case of maps, we
project space and trajectory through schematic representation while in the
case of sounding, we activate the environment around us and in so doing
collect information about
it through feedback.

A traditional way of considering these two approaches to audio mobility
might be that of experiencing audio phenomena we encounter as we cross a
landscape (insect sounds, running water, or a noisy bar and the sound of
traffic) versus hearing the ever changing sound of our own footsteps as
they encounter different surfaces (gravel, leaves or a polished floor) and
activate different resonant spaces or reflective surfaces (an empty hall, a
carpeted room, a forest or a cliff face).

In terms of audio technology these two poles are epitomized by Locative
Media on the one hand and sensor based computing on the other.

In reality, the line we can draw between these two models is not so
clear-cut: radar, a sounding-technology, is used to make projections or
charts and we can ping the network from our laptops to see if we are
present (as a node on the network) and hybridization of these approaches
might offer considerable creative possibilities. However, we consider these
two poles as significant in this research into an art of audio mobility.

Mobile audio-device listening (ipods, smartphones) can be considered
negatively since they tend to isolate the user from his or her naturally
occurring sound environment. They can also be considered positively, as a
way of recuperating for the user, an otherwise unpleasant sound space (when
travelling in a saturated urban environment for example). Our hypothesis is
that by incorporating information emanating from the environment itself,
either through sensing or through localisation, the negative aspects of
mobile listening might be reduced and the positive aspects augmented.


Audio Mobilité.

Le fait que les ordinateurs soient devenus réellement portables et
suffisamment bon marché pour être dédiés à une tâche spécifique tout en
étant assez puissants pour accomplir des calculs complexes en temps réel,
est un phénomène très récent. Si un système capable de générer et de capter
de l'audio peut partager la mobilité des utilisateurs, le statut de l'audio
produit est-il modifié ? Peut-il y avoir une ou des formes nouvelles d'art
audio qui découleraient de cette mobilité ?

Nous proposons de considérer les technologies audio-mobiles de deux points
de vue qui peuvent être illustrés par les notions de cartographie et de
sondage. Dans le cas des cartes, nous nous projetons dans le cadre d'une
représentation (schématique et abstraite). Dans le cas du sondage, nous
activons l'environnement autour de nous et nous récoltons ce faisant des
informations sur cet espace.

Une façon plus traditionnelle de considérer ces deux approches de la
mobilité audio pourrait être de comparer la manière dont nous percevons les
phénomènes sonores que nous rencontrons : d’une part, notre disposition
d’écoute lorsque nous traversons un paysage et un environnement sonore
(sons d'insectes, d'eau courante ou d'un bar bruyant et le bruit de la
circulation), et, d’autre part, le fait d’entendre le son continuellement
varié de nos propres pas rencontrant différentes surfaces (gravier,
feuilles ou un plancher poli) et activant différents espaces résonants ou
surfaces réfléchissantes (une salle vide, une salle couverte de moquette,
une forêt ou une falaise).

En réalité, la ligne que nous pouvons tracer entre ces deux modèles n'est
pas aussi évidente. Le radar, par exemple, est une technologie de sondage
utilisée pour réaliser des projections ou des cartes et, autre exemple,
nous pouvons “pinger” le réseau à partir de notre ordinateur portable pour
savoir si nous sommes présents (en tant qu’adresse ip connectée à ce
réseau). Cependant nous considérons ces deux pôles, cartographie et
sondage, comme significatifs lorsque nous nous posons la question d'un art
de la mobilité audio.

Nous pouvons considérer aujourd'hui que nos appareils portables participent
à nous isoler de manière néfaste de l'environnement sonore autour de nous
(coupure), ou au contraire, qu'ils permettent la réappropriation d'un
espace sonore urbain devenu saturé et l'augmentation de notre espace
personnel d'écoute (couture). Notre hypothèse est que, en intégrant les
informations émanant de l'environnement lui-même, soit par le biais de la
captation soit grâce à la géo-localisation, les aspects négatifs de
l'écoute mobile pourraient être réduits et les aspects positifs augmentés.
