Saturday 19th Februrary 2005 10am - 5pm

Ivan Pope presents A Locative Day Out

The satellite based Global Positioning System (GPS) allows us to record
basic information about our location, direction, altitude and speed.
Using small hand held devices, artists can record and interpret this
data to create mapping, locative, durational and other works. GPS allows
us to take back knowledge of our whereabouts, and to annotate this
knowledge, or to reuse it as we wish.

Artists can use access to this locative data that forms the background
to all our lives, to add another layer of information to work. Whether
we want accurate information or chaotic disinformation, the gps
satellites transmit unceasingly 24 hours a day, not caring whether we
make use of their datastreams or not. We can anonymously take up their
offering and convert it to human data.

Electroacoustic Music Studies Network Conference call for papers

Electroacoustic Music Studies Sound in Multimedia Contexts. From the advent of the first electric instruments, the phonograph, radio, telephone, and subsequent electronic and digital inventions, the approaches to technologies relevant to the art of sound have been limited only by the imagination of the musician. In recent years, there seems to have been a proliferation of studies relating to music incorporating these technologies However, the investigation of such a varied musical repertoire raises a number of issues that the EMS conferences wish to examine. The themes of the conference therefore emphasize questions of resources, discourse, and analytical tools relevant to electroacoustic musics. visit the EMS-05 website @ http://ems05.musique.umontreal.ca/index.html for more information

We can anonymously take up their offering and convert it to human data. This one day live workshop will introduce the basic functioning of the GPS and demonstrate GPS devices and software along with digital cameras. Participants will be able to use GPS devices and digital cameras in the field to create their own personal mappings of the locality. These mappings will form the basis for a workshop in creating combined and annotated maps and images. We will spend the day looking at software and hardware and discussing psychogeographic and locative issues while making our own maps, playing gps games and adding to the global store of waypoints. visit http://locative.x-i.net for details
