E como falava em modos de mediação locativos sonoros no último post, encontro mais esse projeto (via Networked_Performance], Audiomobile – A mobile sound installation for cities de Matt Smith e Sandra Wintner que acontece de 27 de novembro a 4 de dezembroem Bad Radkersburg, Styria, Austria. O princípio é o mesmo, lugares que disparam informação sonora aos carros em deslocamento. Vejam a descrição:
Audiomobile invites you to explore ‘Sonic Maps’ while driving around in a comfortable vehicle that encourages dialogue between a random assortment of passengers and that is equipped with a multi-channel audio system and GPS positioning system. As various urban scenes pass by, GPS coordinates allocated to the vehicle’s current geographic position trigger audio files: retrieved from an archive of sound clips, looped ambient sounds, and narrative elements created by six artists, this creates a constantly changing soundscape that becomes audible in the passenger area.
The position of the vehicle in the city not only determines the selection of sounds but also the direction (loudspeakers) from which the sounds reach the passengers’ ears. This creates the impression that the sounds emanate from very specific points in the urban scenery and grow louder or quieter depending on the vehicle’s distance to the mapped areas.”
