HERD ABOVE THE NOISE: INSTALLATION. There are 170 speakers in the installation version with a new custom software system. It requires a large floor for it to go on. This size can vary the minimum size could be 20ft by 20 ft to 60 ft by 50 ft. The installation plays thousands of sounds from around the world and is arranged like an entangled map of the city the artwork is installed in. What you see and experience is a map of wires and cables and speakers including over 170 speakers, custom made amplifiers and cables that are all used to make the installation. The aim is to create an online aural experience that evokes place, both as literal description but also developed musical composition. As globalization fractures the identity of the city experience we start to find things that appear the same the world over.

Images are coming from the website projects. This is basically a live world tour of city sounds as music. Performances during the last year have been heavily focused on the sounds of cities. I have been to sao paulo, london, paris, dresden, amsterdam, saltburg, graz, rotterdam, barcelona, san sebastian, manchester, liverpool, ljubiana, frankfurt porto, istanbul mexico, chicago. These found sounds form the basis of a performance piece called "soundcities". The project "soundcities" is completely made up of found sounds and soundscapes from the thousands of samples I collected. These sounds are also fused with interactive images live cctv from around the world that I have made into online software syatems. Souncities performance by Stanza.

WORKSHOP: SOUNDCITIES Workshop with the soundcities project. The workshop investigates field recording, collecting sounds, editing sounds, and finally they put them in the database and on soundmaps on the soundcities.com site. The group creates these soundmaps in the city by recording sounds using portable devices. The aim is to learn about field recording and using sound for creative uses, ie concerts, installations and enhanced experience of our surroundings.

SOUNDCITIES CD Musical compositions using the soundcities database by Stanza 2003 made and released as MP3 download release. Stanza reworked all the found sounds into finished musical compositions called Soundcities CD. This cd mixes all these founds sounds from the online database into a series of compositions from each world city. The intention was to also make compositional interpretations of these sounds. Working with Pelado the sounds were arranged as finished compositions into nearly 70 mins of music that forms the basis of a 'world tour'.
