U-GRUVE: Interactive Soundtracks for Public Spaces
U-GRUVE: Interactive Soundtracks for Public Spaces


*******  UPDATE: 28 Apr 2016 *******

Greetings everyone, and many thanks to those of you who have signed up! I wanted to let you know that the U-GRUVE app is now available on the App Store for download.
Here is the link to the Preview; you can access iTunes from there:

ALSO

Please be aware that our schedule has been evolving, and we've decided to roll-out compositions/locations one-by-one over the course of the festival. Hopefully that doesn't cause any inconvenience; if so, please accept my apologies.

That said, for today, 29 Apr 2016, we are opening with the work of Milica Paranosic, whose piece lives on the Upper West Side in Riverside Park on down to the Hudson Greenway, between 89th and 96th Streets. It's just a short walk west from Broadway, where the 1 Train stops at both 86th and 96th Streets.

Have fun ad please do let us know what you think!

*****************************************

Featuring original audio works by Michael Durek, Milica Paranosic, Jesse Stiles, Norville Parchment, Richard Rodkin, and Mick Sussman

U-GRUVE is an ongoing, public audio installation, marking its official launch with New York Creative Tech Week 2016.

U-GRUVE blurs the line between listening and performing, and turns your normal, passive, listening experience into one that is enriching, memorable, and unique to your interactions, ultimately strengthening your connection to the places you love.

Now, with your GPS-enabled mobile device (currently iPhone only), you can create soundscapes with original music composed specifically for a select number of well-known public spaces throughout Manhattan. And because the arrangement is controlled by your unfolding path within the space, the resulting music that you hear may be entirely different from what someone else hears.

Please visit u-gruve.com, follow us on Twitter @ugruve or "like" us Facebook for download instructions once the app is live in the App Store.

During Creative Tech Week the following locations will be live per the schedule below,  and will be accessible within the location's normal hours of operation:

Midnight Moment

On April 1, 2016 Soundwalk Collective and Times Square Arts will present JUNGLE-IZED, a month-long interactive multi-sensory art installation that will transform Times Square, transporting close to a half a million visitors daily to the heart of the Amazon. Presented in collaboration with David de Rothschild, and in partnership with The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC), Times Square Arts, Audio-Technica, and CXA+ART, this immersive installation includes a participatory audio experience and an interactive video to encourage a conversation with nature and to heighten awareness of the environmental impact of climate change.

As part of the Times Square Arts’ At the Crossroads program, which includes installations and performances on the public plazas of Times Square, visitors will be invited to take self-guided audio tours of the Amazon by downloading the JUNGLE-IZED mobile app. From noon to midnight throughout April visitors can also borrow a pair of premium Audio-Technica headphones from the official JUNGLE-IZED kiosk located on 7th Avenue between 43rd and 44th Street, to begin the journey through a virtual soundscape that superimposes the Amazon ecosystem upon an eight-square block area of Times Square.

Available through the JUNGLE-IZED mobile app, the virtual soundscape is composed by Soundwalk Collective and recorded by internationally acclaimed sound artist Francisco López. As visitors walk throughout Times Square, the voices of Shipibo shamans and narration by Amazon experts Jeremy Narby and Daniel Pinchbeck will guide them along a jungle tour and into a conversation with nature. The use of Audio-Technica headphones provides an end-to-end experience and ensures that none of the Amazon’s auditory brilliance is lost along the way.

Midnight Moment
 is the largest coordinated effort in history by the sign operators in Times Square to display synchronized, cutting-edge creative content on electronic billboards and newspaper kiosks throughout Times Square every night. The program premiered in May 2012 and is organized and supported by the Times Square Advertising Coalition in partnership with Times Square Arts, the public art program of the Times Square Alliance, with additional partners of participating sign holders and artists.

 

Each night, Times Square becomes a digital art gallery through dazzling visuals on select billboards and newsstands. Every show begins at 11:57 p.m. with a "countdown" that signals the start of the three minute nightly presentation.  Past artists featured in the program include Richard Garet; Andy Warhol; Peggy Ahwesh;  Marco Brambilla; Rafaël Rozendaal; Sebastian Errazuriz; Charles Atlas and Antony; Noah Hutton;  Ryoji Ikeda; Daniel Canogar; Alfredo Jaar; Isaac Julien; Robert Wilson; Tracey Emin; Seoungho Cho; Vicki DaSilva, Surabhi Saraf, and Elly Cho; Erika Janunger; Takeshi Murata; Bel Borba with Burt Sun and André Costantini; Zach Nader; Brian Gonzalez (aka Taxiplasm); Björk; JR; Ryan McGinley; Jack Goldstein; Nature Theater of Oklahoma; Ezra Wube;Laleh Khorramian; Brian Dailey; Leslie Thornton; and Yoko Ono.

Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed
The Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed is a multi-screen installation that displays full motion digital video portraits of political leaders from around the world (Obama, Putin, Trump, Cameron, Xi Jinping, Assad, Merkel, Hassan Rouhani, Hollande, Kim Jung Un etc.). An essential part of the total experience is the manipulated audio and video signal in real time. A camera based motion tracking system allows the movement of the gallery visitor to ‘preturb’ the digital video signal, scrambling the video and audio signal to create colorized effects and percussive distortions of the spoken word. For example, in an interview, the embattled president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad is quoted saying: “We do not use barrel bombs.” The motion tracking will trigger the breakup of Assad’s digital video image and the repetition of key words (e.g. b-b-b-barrel, b-b-b-bombs etc.). Wall mounted LCD displays have the visual impact as a gallery filled with large-scale paintings. In this instance the “painting” is full motion digital colorized video pixels. This dramatic format functions as a critique of the use and abuse of power. This multi-screen installation is an homage to Antonio Muntadas’ 1987 installation The Board Room. The viewer’s motion perturbs the audio and digital video signal disrupting and interrupting the speech transforming messaging and political propaganda into visual and auditory artifacts with a separate aesthetic.

Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed
The Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed is a multi-screen installation that displays full motion digital video portraits of political leaders from around the world (Obama, Putin, Trump, Cameron, Xi Jinping, Assad, Merkel, Hassan Rouhani, Hollande, Kim Jung Un etc.). An essential part of the total experience is the manipulated audio and video signal in real time. A camera based motion tracking system allows the movement of the gallery visitor to ‘preturb’ the digital video signal, scrambling the video and audio signal to create colorized effects and percussive distortions of the spoken word. For example, in an interview, the embattled president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad is quoted saying: “We do not use barrel bombs.” The motion tracking will trigger the breakup of Assad’s digital video image and the repetition of key words (e.g. b-b-b-barrel, b-b-b-bombs etc.). Wall mounted LCD displays have the visual impact as a gallery filled with large-scale paintings. In this instance the “painting” is full motion digital colorized video pixels. This dramatic format functions as a critique of the use and abuse of power. This multi-screen installation is an homage to Antonio Muntadas’ 1987 installation The Board Room. The viewer’s motion perturbs the audio and digital video signal disrupting and interrupting the speech transforming messaging and political propaganda into visual and auditory artifacts with a separate aesthetic.

Featuring original audio works by Michael DurekMilica ParanosicJesse StilesNorville ParchmentRichard Rodkin, and Mick Sussman

U-GRUVE is an ongoing, public audio installation, marking its official launch with New York Creative Tech Week 2016.

U-GRUVE blurs the line between listening and performing, and turns your normal, passive, listening experience into one that is enriching, memorable, and unique to your interactions, ultimately strengthening your connection to the places you love.

Now, with your GPS-enabled mobile device (currently iPhone only), you can create soundscapes with original music composed specifically for a select number of well-known public spaces throughout Manhattan.

W.U.R.M.: Escape from a Dying Star
W.U.R.M.: Escape from a Dying Star is a two-player immersive space survival game. The game is  centered around a physical structure, the spaceship (WURM) itself. The ship is built of foam core and 3d printed materials, with a fully operational control panel and wearable electronic vest. The panel and vest house several controls, which the pilot must adjust during flight in order to survive. The pilot is unable to determine where the controls should be set, without the guidance of the second player stationed at Base Command. A generative audio-visual system built in Processing and Pure Data reacts to the manipulations of the controls by the pilot, which in turn alter the course of the spaceship, creating an increasingly complex feedback loop. Random generation of  the initial environmental constructs ensure a 
unique experience for each player. The pilot is able to manipulate several controls, including Hyperdrive, Oxygen, Modulation, and Particle Splitters. Each control has a unique effect on the audio-visual environment and gameplay. If the Hyperdrive is set too low for too long, for example, the pilot's WURM will be damaged. If  too much damage is accumulated during play, the WURM explodes and the two players are met with defeat. With enough trust and communication, however, Base Command will safely guide the pilot to the other side of the wormhole.

Midnight Moment

Midnight Moment is the largest coordinated effort in history by the sign operators in Times Square to display synchronized, cutting-edge creative content on electronic billboards and newspaper kiosks throughout Times Square every night. The program premiered in May 2012 and is organized and supported by the Times Square Advertising Coalition in partnership with Times Square Arts, the public art program of the Times Square Alliance, with additional partners of participating sign holders and artists.

 

Each night, Times Square becomes a digital art gallery through dazzling visuals on select billboards and newsstands. Every show begins at 11:57 p.m. with a "countdown" that signals the start of the three minute nightly presentation.  Past artists featured in the program include Richard Garet; Andy Warhol; Peggy Ahwesh;  Marco Brambilla; Rafaël Rozendaal; Sebastian Errazuriz; Charles Atlas and Antony; Noah Hutton;  Ryoji Ikeda; Daniel Canogar; Alfredo Jaar; Isaac Julien; Robert Wilson; Tracey Emin; Seoungho Cho; Vicki DaSilva, Surabhi Saraf, and Elly Cho; Erika Janunger; Takeshi Murata; Bel Borba with Burt Sun and André Costantini; Zach Nader; Brian Gonzalez (aka Taxiplasm); Björk; JR; Ryan McGinley; Jack Goldstein; Nature Theater of Oklahoma; Ezra Wube;Laleh Khorramian; Brian Dailey; Leslie Thornton; and Yoko Ono.

Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed
The Prerogatives of Power: The Good, The Bad and The Perturbed is a multi-screen installation that displays full motion digital video portraits of political leaders from around the world (Obama, Putin, Trump, Cameron, Xi Jinping, Assad, Merkel, Hassan Rouhani, Hollande, Kim Jung Un etc.). An essential part of the total experience is the manipulated audio and video signal in real time. A camera based motion tracking system allows the movement of the gallery visitor to ‘preturb’ the digital video signal, scrambling the video and audio signal to create colorized effects and percussive distortions of the spoken word. For example, in an interview, the embattled president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad is quoted saying: “We do not use barrel bombs.” The motion tracking will trigger the breakup of Assad’s digital video image and the repetition of key words (e.g. b-b-b-barrel, b-b-b-bombs etc.). Wall mounted LCD displays have the visual impact as a gallery filled with large-scale paintings. In this instance the “painting” is full motion digital colorized video pixels. This dramatic format functions as a critique of the use and abuse of power. This multi-screen installation is an homage to Antonio Muntadas’ 1987 installation The Board Room. The viewer’s motion perturbs the audio and digital video signal disrupting and interrupting the speech transforming messaging and political propaganda into visual and auditory artifacts with a separate aesthetic.
