On The Shore Dimly Seen: Review, Götz Naleppa 2016 University of Wollongong

On The Shore Dimly Seen: Review, Götz Naleppa

RadioDoc Review

A new wave of understanding and agreement with all sorts of secret service methods which pretend to protect us against terrorism makes Whitehead’s radio performance, On The Shore Dimly Seen, even more precious and important than at the time of its production. Because it is the voice of a radical believer in democracy and human rights: today a lonely voice in the chorus of fear. We hear Gregory Whitehead’s voice chanting the interrogation log of Guantanamo Bay detainee 063 (prisoners in Guantanamo do not have names, they are only numbers), interwoven with the voices of vocalist Gelsey Bell ...


The Hacker Syndrome: Review, Martin Johnson 2016 Ljudbang Productions

The Hacker Syndrome: Review, Martin Johnson

RadioDoc Review

The Hacker Syndrome tells the story of Stephan Ubach, a man who is slowly revealed as an activist and a hero to those involved in the Arab Spring. A man who, as the story unfolds, forgets his own needs - and breaks down. This is also a story of distance - physical and mental. A story of the importance that information plays in people’s lives and how some people are willing to risk their lives for the world to know what is going on. Radio documentaries and features usually require an emotional attachment to the character, while computers, and often the ...


A Kiss - Review, Miyuki Jokiranta 2016 Australian Broadcasting Corporation

A Kiss - Review, Miyuki Jokiranta

RadioDoc Review

A Kiss is a quick six-minute dip in the shared psyche of Kaitlin and her former lover, Kyle, who after three years of being separated, now find themselves in Kaitlin’s bedroom on a sun-drenched afternoon, in the air a question - will they kiss? Kaitlin’s work chooses microcosmic worlds to enlarge to a point where each thought, each intention, even each stage of an action is given the time to unfold, offering up intimate portraits of character. Paradoxically, greater insight comes from the momentary than something attempting to be more exhaustive. Such a brief account precludes detailed explanation but ...


Analogy: A Decomposition Of Space And Time, David Gordon Shoemaker Jr 2016 Bard College

Analogy: A Decomposition Of Space And Time, David Gordon Shoemaker Jr

Senior Projects Spring 2016

The written part of this project is divided into two sections, with the first section focusing on the human eye as a biological tool for gathering and processing physical information. The second section strives to provide a model of human vision by utilizing Fourier Analysis. Out of this model came a focus on Fourier Analysis as not only a model, but as a methodology that can be applied in a variety of ways. The Fourier methodology provided a conceptual bridge that allowed me to more thoroughly explore art, physics, and how these two fields can contribute to each other.


Choreographic Space, Kelsey Sheaffer 2016 Virginia Commonwealth University

Choreographic Space, Kelsey Sheaffer

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis, Choreographic Space, and accompanying exhibit is an arrangement of contemporary work being done in the cross-over between movement, drawing, sound and architecture. The thesis develops a lineage of choreographic thinking through a fissure in the classification of a dance as necessarily the body in motion. Through the link of the “choreographic object,” Choreographic Space asks how an interdisciplinary exploration of the principles of movement can reveal novel ways to think about the body in space.


The Future Of Arabic Music: No Sound Without Silence, Nesma Magdy Khodier VCUQ 2016 Virginia Commonwealth University

The Future Of Arabic Music: No Sound Without Silence, Nesma Magdy Khodier Vcuq

Theses and Dissertations

For centuries, Arabic music has been intrinsically linked to Arab culture and by extension bonded to the environmental landscape of the region, reflecting their emotions, moods, and behaviors. Numerous technological advancements in the latter half of the twentieth century, have greatly affected the rich legacy of Arabic music, significantly impacting the natural progression of traditional Arabic musical genres, scales, and instrumentation.

This thesis serves as an introduction to generative methods of music production, specifically music generated through gestures. Through generative music, and its unique ability to map gestures to different musical parameters, music can be produced using computer algorithms.

The ...


Dear Bees, I Love You., Dakota Keller 2016 University of Iowa

Dear Bees, I Love You., Dakota Keller

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

Dear Bees, I love you, is a project about working with honey bees and making art with them. Installing hand made notes into the hive allow for the hive to respond in their most bee-like way to a human gesture. Together, it has become an inter-species art project about how to learn to love and respect each other. A mock hive was built for the gallery space with recorded live hive sounds and scented with a crock pot full of unprocessed wax and honey. Guests were encouraged to drop their own written notes into the hive as a way to ...

Still Glowing Strong: Review 2 (Australia), Maree Delofski 2015 Macquarie University, Sydney

Still Glowing Strong: Review 2 (Australia), Maree Delofski

RadioDoc Review

Still Glowing Strong is an elegant and poetic documentary about a dreamer. Harald Brobakkan has an obsessive desire to create an everlasting battery. From the outset, the minimalist music and Leganger’s beautifully written narration set up the tone of the documentary – gentle, respectful, restrained, occasionally melancholic yet never maudlin. Program maker Sindre Leganger very successfully conveys Harald’s story together with rich observations about the universe, science and its treatment of ‘outsiders’, life - and the nature of a very long relationship.


Still Glowing Strong: Review (Denmark), Anna Elisabeth Jessen 2015 University of Wollongong

Still Glowing Strong: Review (Denmark), Anna Elisabeth Jessen

RadioDoc Review

Still Glowing Strong is Norwegian Sindre Leganger’s tender story of an old man, Harald, who thinks he has invented an everlasting battery that could save the world. The problem is that no one has the time to look at it – his wife in particular. But as Leganger and the old man’s grandson take an interest, this short but remarkable feature reveals much about our finite lives and the eternal starry sky above us, about being stubborn, being optimistic and about hope. Leganger illustrates Zola’s dictum, that “art is a corner of reality seen through a temperament”. He ...

Three Great Phonographers: Warhol, Nixon & Kaufman, Brian L. Frye 2015 University of Kentucky College of Law

Three Great Phonographers: Warhol, Nixon & Kaufman, Brian L. Frye

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

Journalists record in order to produce an article and substantiate factual assertions, but phonographers record in order to produce an audio recording. In other words, for a journalist, phonography is a means to an end, but for a phonographer, it is an end in itself.

Warhol, Nixon, and Kaufman exemplify three modes of phonography: anthropological, historical, and psychological. Warhol documented the language and self-perception of a subculture that was ignored or pathologized by mass culture. Nixon created the most comprehensive record of a presidential administration that will ever exist. And Kaufman captured moments in which ordinary people responded to violations ...


B-Boy And Buuz: A Study Of Mongolian Hip-Hop Culture, Quinn Graham Wallace 2015 SIT Graduate Institute - Study Abroad

B-Boy And Buuz: A Study Of Mongolian Hip-Hop Culture, Quinn Graham Wallace

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

When walking down the streets of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, passersby will find countless material traits of hip-hop culture surrounding them, including snapback hats, skateboards, and tattoos. A powerful combination of urban growth, democracy, and a booming market economy has invited and stimulated contemporary forms of hip-hop, creating an active but unorganized Mongolian hip-hop sub-culture and community. In this explorative and analytical paper, I examine what Mongolian hiphop artists express about present-day Mongolia through hip-hop mediums and why they are a unique critical voice. While there are several facets of hip-hop, I focus on three modes of traditional hip-hop culture: oral (rapping ...


Not Quite Cricket By Jon Rose: A Review, Jane Ulman 2015 University of Wollongong

Not Quite Cricket By Jon Rose: A Review, Jane Ulman

RadioDoc Review

In Not Quite Cricket, Jon Rose reaches into the well-known story of the first Australian cricket team to play at Lords and draws out a tragedy dressed up as music hall comedy, in what he calls a 'historical intervention'.

Rose is an Australian-based polymath creator: a musician, inventor, composer, improviser, educator and entertainer. Radio production is just one strand of his prolific body of work. Over decades he has forged an innovative style, a distinctive radio form. His work has always been a fusion of genres, a hybrid of fact and invention with composed and improvised music carrying its own ...

The Ripple Effects Of Digital Storytelling: Transforming Collective Consciousness, Amanda Esons 2015 SIT Graduate Institute

The Ripple Effects Of Digital Storytelling: Transforming Collective Consciousness, Amanda Esons

Capstone Collection

This capstone asks how individual narrative can transform collective awareness through the sharing of story, and how these stories might be a force for social change. Insights from the research pose the argument that it is empathy and empowerment that leads to individual and collective healing, understanding and social change. We learn by listening as people open up and share their accounts of experiences that hold meaning in their lives. Sharing a story can transcend experience, and create a ripple effect within society. The intimacy born from these connections nurtures empathy which can in turn expand our perceptions of identity ...
