MTFer Vicky Clarke has just released the music project SLEEPSTATES, which explores machine addiction and the techno-emotional states of slumber experienced between humans and machines. SLEEPSTATES.NET is a wonderful browser-based artwork that takes the user through different states of algorithmic slumber with audiovisual interaction taking over their screens. Listeners are taken through a sleep cycle of dream transmissions from the imaginary, accompanied by a web-art piece. Check it out here: WWW.SLEEPSTATES.NET#sounds#sleep#algorithm#art#machine...

A group of international artists come together to conduct sonic research at the CLB, Moritzplatz. For four days, it will be a laboratory for studying traffic noise, small vibrations, passing conversations, hidden corners, the flows of humans and other animals. Listening to these sounds is our first step for developing new experiences and interventions in the local urban area. Join us on Friday 20th January at 7 pm for a packed program with presentations and experimental results from the artists. You can also visit the exhibition between 21st-22nd and 26th-29th January, 1 pm-7 pm. This is an opportunity to try out the listening exercises and musical instruments yourself.

The Global Library of Underwater Biological Sound is a wonderful project that supports the health of marine ecosystems and reveals regional dialects within the same species. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2022/feb/17/underwater-sound-library-to-reveal-language-of-the-deep-aoe
AI and digital bioacoustics are enabling humans to decode sounds in nature that we can’t physically perceive. It turns out that many animals and even plants that we thought were mute are simply not.
New instrument in progress for The Beating Birch. This will have a mix of analog and digital sound making and sending. Both an installation and performance instrument. Come play with it at @hackoustic on the 17th!
