Lalya mailed me about these projects months ago, but due to the cityofsound being out of action for a while, I never got round to it. Better late than never. Sorry Lalya.
"In the project Sonic City, we have developed a system that enables people to create music in real time by walking through and interacting with the urban environment. Drawing on wearable and context-aware computing, our prototype applies perception of place, time, situation, and activity to the real-time sound processing of urban sounds. In Sonic City, we explore the use of public space and everyday behaviours for creative purposes, in particular the city as an interface and mobility as an interaction model for electronic music making."
"(Tejp) explores various possibilities for overlaying personal traces and information on public spaces through different mediums and behavior patterns. It is our hope that Tejp will transform spectators into players and encourage playful ways to personalize territory in the public realm. We also hope to connect local communities by providing a space and sounding board for existing social relationships."
