[Soundbombs]

[…] „Soundbombs sind New-Media-Accessoires. Jedes für sich ein handgefertigtes Designobjekt zur interaktiven Nachrichtenübermittlung. Ein integriertes Soundmodul bietet die Möglichkeit jeden akustischen Inhalt zu rekorden und diesen durch einen Bewegungssensor zu starten. Als „Non-Visual Graffiti“ mit Ursprung in der Streetart, geben Soundbombs somit die Möglichkeit Orte auditiv zu taggen: Ein Willkommensgruss über dem Türeingang oder die Warnung vor einem schlechten Restaurant. Jeder Besitzer kann seine Botschaft immer und überall hinterlassen und Laut geben. Soundbombs können pfeifen, lachen, rülpsen, extrem laut sein oder Gedichte vortragen. Für den Kauf einer Soundbomb kann man sich bewerben; denn eine Soundbomb bekommt nur derjenige, der auch eine Soundbomb verdient!“

[Analog revolution – the sound of the century]

This is the story of the synthesizer, the entirely new class of instrument born out of the technological tumult of the 20th century. It had a revolutionary impact on the sound of the century, crossing all musical genres on the way. We hear how artists as diverse as Pink Floyd, Sun Ra, Herbie Hancock, and Doctor Who’s Tristram Cary took to Bob Moog’s invention with fervour, weaving it into the cultural fabric and popular psyche.This program traces the development of three crucial early synthesizers; the Moog, the Buchla and the EMS. Each had an enormous impact on all music of the last 50 years and spawned subsequent generations of electronic musical instruments. The flexible, patchable nature of the synthesizer offered chameleon-like qualities which could be used in almost any sonic context

The program features interviews with some of the key players in this analogue revolution:

Father of the Synthesizer, Dr Robert Moog
Wendy Carlos of Switched on Bach fame
British-born Australian composer and instrument builder, Tristram Cary
Australian electronic pioneer, Bruce Clarke
Suzanne Cianni, creator of what is arguably the most widely heard synthetic sound in history
Author and synthesizer historian, Professor Trevor Pinch
Australian-based instrument builder and composer, Warren Burt

Produced by
Cathy Peters and John Jacobs

[…] „The digital controls of a confocal microscope allow for the clean separation of different fluorescent emission signals and the balancing of signal levels in different channels. Thus, fluorescent images of exceptional clarity and vivid color can be easily obtained. In addition, the optical sectioning properties of the confocal microscope can be used to collect clear images from within thick sections and wholemounts.“
