Picles from Around the World | Made by Many

"Watching and listening people's lives through their sights and sounds is quite a powerful experience, it's like stepping into a completely new storytelling ecosystem. One minute you will be watching a family birthday in Israel, the next you will be at an NBA playoff game. To give you an idea of what that is like and to share with you all what we have been experiencing I put together this montage of Picles from around the world.  It's a great feeling to see people from all over the world use something that you have made. Anyway, check out the video and let us know what you think of it, enjoy :)" [See also: http://picleapp.com/ ]

"Oterp is a mobile phone game project using a GPS sensor to manipulate music in real time, depending on the player's position on Earth. It generates new melodies when travelling. The objective of Oterp is to mix the reality of our everyday environment with a video game. This is a new way to imagine our movements in a society increasingly on the move and dependent on mobile interfaces."

Pasta&Vinegar; » Video games with less video

"Discussion with colleagues here at the design school about “screenless interaction design” led me to present some projects that I find interesting in the field. It seems that there’s starting to be a cluster of projects that aim at creating playful and digital interactions with less emphasis on the visual senses. Some examples I find interesting: [1] SAP (for Situated Audio Platform) a “Barely Game prototype” by Russell Davies… [2] Oterp by Antonin Fourneau (development by Kevin Lesur)… [3] Papa Sangre… It seems that there’s a continuum based on the degree to which the user need to look at his or her own device: from no need to do this to a quick glance once in a while. Interestingly, this connects to another interest of mine: asynchronous interactions between the user and digital realms… which led me to this kind of design space (teku teku angel is a Nintendo DS game in which you have to walk with a pedometer to raise so tamagotchi-like creature)…"

Becoming Animal- Race, Terror and the American Roots Dick Hebdige [Saw a version of this performance at the Hammer. Awesome!]

An early version of the text reproduced below was first given as a mixed-media presentation at an interdisciplinary conference on ‘‘Noise’’ held at the University of California, Santa Barbara in June 2002. The conference brought together a group of musicians, composers, visual artists, ethnomusiciologists and film, TV and media scholars drawn from a range of institutions sited in the States and abroad. What follows should be regarded more as the inchoate mapping or approximate documentation of a performance than as a conventional piece of written scholarship or criticism. Inevitably much is lost or at least significantly refigured in the translation from a ‘live’ real-time context complete with audio, slide and video inserts to the stereophonic silence of words upon a page but it is my hope that some of those readers who persevere beyond this preamble and who follow what follows will recognize or, failing that, will follow up/track down some at least of the audio citations."

Audio Recordings of John Holt

"This early interview of John, done in Philadelphia in-between speaking engagements, is a very good overview of Holt's work, and is particularly focused on homeschooling. John Holt interviewed by Teri Gross on Fresh Air, NPR, 1981
Though homeschooling is discussed, the bulk of this talk show focuses on how schools can be changed and Holt's thoughts about that. John Holt interviewed on Boston radio, WBOS, about the "A Nation at Risk" report [1983]

This is the raw interview tape that Holt owned, not the final broadcast version. Covers lots of political and educational reform ground about homeschooling, including Holt's thoughts about the influence of religious fundamentalists, are homeschoolers abandoning schools, unqualified parents teaching their own, and much more. John Holt interviewed by David Freudberg/Kindred Spirits Radio, April 11, 1985

portamentos on Vimeo [Watch through to the end, the dialogue with the little girl is the best!]
"demonstration of portamentos which is an application designed to take advantage of a technique of abstracting high resolution parameter data onto the monome grid.

The grid displays several parameters (pitch, amplitude level, attack, decay, portamento time and filter cutoff) per step. Instead of using the grid to enter in data, which would be fairly coarse, the grid is used to indicate parameter value and to select which parameter and step is in focus. The parameter value is abstracted twice, both on the grid and arc ring. Once any parameter is selected on the grid, the value for all visible steps are displayed."

Papa Sangre

"You are lost, deep in the darkness of the land of the dead. Your eyes are useless to you here — but your ears are filled with sound. And what is it you can hear…?
All you know is someone is in grave danger & desperately needs your help. Can you save them and make your escape or will you be trapped in the blackness forever?
You’re in Papa Sangre’s palace. His palace is in an afterlife that takes the form of a malevolent, unpredictable carnival: imagine a Mexican graveyard on the Day of the Dead — with the lights off. You’re the piñata for a host of partying monsters. They probably look a lot worse than they sound. You should count yourself lucky it’s too dark to see them.
Get out. Save the one you love. Do the right thing.

Papa Sangre is a video game with no video. It’s a first-person thriller, done entirely in audio by an award-winning team of game designers, musicians, sound designers & developers."

Ivan Illich Archives

Thomas Steele-Maley directed me to this lecture "Illich speaking on schools" (links below), in which Illich describes the "Jacobin Utopian" educator and the "Bourbon" educator. Boy, does this hit home. So glad that Thomas pointed me here, it helps clarify my thinking and serves as yet another reminder of the genius Illich.

Deb Roy: The birth of a word | Video on TED.com

"MIT researcher Deb Roy wanted to understand how his infant son learned language -- so he wired up his house with videocameras to catch every moment (with exceptions) of his son's life, then parsed 90,000 hours of home video to watch "gaaaa" slowly turn into "water." Astonishing, data-rich research with deep implications for how we learn."
