Alienated Sensory Mashup.

PHONAR, the free and open undergraduate class set a task called the Alienated Sensory Mashup. Here is an excerpt from their blog.

“Working in pairs if possible name yourselves “Eyes” and “Ears”. Ears is equipped with sound recording equipment (Your phone will be more than adequate!) and blindfolded. Eyes will lead Ears on a guided journey through a range of different environments. Ears will dictate the pace of the journey and say when they want to stop and make dedicated “sound-mark” recordings.

You should end up with a landscape story and a soundscape story. This content should then be uploaded for everyone to share and mash-up. In next week’s session we’ll be combining soundscapes with image-based journeys and layering them with other people’s to make new artefacts. You must license this content a CC-BY to enable us to do all of this.

Take time to load up your content with as much information as possible such as the time, location, weather, your mood etc , all of this is information that can be dispensed with if not needed but has the potential to add value if included. – JW”

Here are some examples of the mashups which are really interesting because they create a real sense of the atmosphere around the artist. You can view more here
