The goal is to inexpensively and automatically deduce bee behavior by analyzing the sounds made inside the hive. It is not easy to understand what goes on inside a bee hive. Bee hives are too dark, cramped, and crowded to place cameras. Every motion of every bee – to some extent – results in a vibration in the air or on the surface of the comb. Is there anything about bee behavior that can be deduced from their induced acoustic vibrations? And if there is, can we do it on the cheap? Speaking of cheap, it used to cost the military tens of millions to dollars for custom hardware and teams of programmers in order to calculate Fast Fourier Transforms for spectral analysis radar and sonar applications. Moore’s Law, Open Source software, and cheap ($99) digital field recorders provide superior and faster tools that anybody (with a little knowledge) can use to analyze colony sounds.

soft(n) explores intimacy and experience through physical interaction with 10-12 networked soft objects that exhibit emerging behavior when touched or moved within a space. The network recognizes the quality of tactile and kinesthetic interaction, responding to how objects are touched or moved. Interaction with the soft objects elicits behaviors such as humming, shaking, sighing, singing and shared moving luminous patterns. Each soft object is hand constructed and contains a specially designed, hand-sewn and custom-engineered soft-intelligent-tactile input surface, motion detectors, and an ability to respond through vibration, light, and sound.

Research began with AVANT, a monograph on the Spanish musical avant-garde, scarcely documented until now. This series, curated by Roc Jiménez de Cisneros, is also available at Ubuweb.
Parallel to that, COMPOSING WITH PROCESS is a series, curated by Mark Fell and Joe Gilmore, which explores generative approaches to composition and performance primarily in the context of experimental technologies and music practices of the latter part of the 20th Century. Each episode is accompanied by an additional programme, entitled EXCLUSIVES, featuring unpublished sound pieces by leading sound artists working in the field.
MEMORABILIA. COLLECTING SOUNDS WITH... breaks through to unearth and reveal private collections of music and sound memorabilia, in order to reveal the unseen and passionate work of the amateur collector.

Each episode of this series is followed by a special accompaniment programme of exclusive music by some of the leading sound artists and composers working in the field. This show presents two process-led works by American composer Keith Fullerton Whitman and Swedish artist Carl Michael von Hausswolff.
