      http://chrislunney.com/Sound-in-Relative-Space This video captures how people might move through the space, and the sound quality that is generated. To properly hear the sound quality you must listen to this through speakers of high fidelity, as most of the tones are between 0hz and 200hz. Sound in Relative Space is an installation designed while studying abroad at the Universitat Der Kunste in Berlin Germany. For the class “Sound and Space” I chose to look at how we experience our position in space relative to the place we are. Not only does the environment inform your positioning but other people as well. This installation allows relative spatial positions to be experienced aurally. As one person moves through the space, a frequency is generated from their position, changing in pitch as they walk closer to the center of the room or towards its boundaries. As multiple people pass through the space, each of their singular frequencies superimpose on one another to create one singular fluctuating tone emitted into the space. The people are then moving through the space not only effected by the architecture and other people, but by a sonic landscape as well. At certain positions harmonies are created from relative positions. In this project a site was chosen as a prospective place for installation. Here the cube sculpture at the center of the courtyard will be the surface for oscilloscope projections of the combined frequency of the space. To experience this installation is to perceive peoples’ movement through a space translated into sound, while they navigate the sonic atmosphere that they create.

        A motion graphics piece for the song "Goldene Kugel" by Siriusmo. Electro graphic imagery is paired with the sonic texture and rhythmic movement throughout the song. The visual optics of moiré patterns, and the shifting one point perspective, test the eye's ability to communicate with the brian. (song was shortened from its original length to fit the project's time requirements)

            One Day Life is a video triptych exploring the hypothesis of a life lived in one singular day. This piece was catalyzed by Alan Lightman’s writing, in his book Einstein’s Dreams. The book considers various fictional places in which time exists far from the way we experience the phenomenon. One story depicted a place in which a person is born into the world and dies in the duration of one day. A second hypothesis to this approach considers this day to be stretched over the length of a lifetime. Pairing this writing with an experience of my own, informed the selection of the content. In the summer of 2008 I visited St. Petersburg Russia. At this time of the year the sun would set into twilight at 2am. This skewed sense of time related with the approach stated above. I chose three photographs from this trip to relate to the passing of time in one day. Each film features abstract shapes superimposed on the background that grows but is then covered by a veil of black. At the end of each film the veil wipes towards the direction of the following film. In order from day to night, the films were arranged left to right, and played in sequence. The sound was selected to reflect the emotion of three moments of day. Morning rises with wonder and awe. Afternoon stretches the last of the sun into the sunset. Night waits ominously past the horizon. Parsons The New School For Design Class: Projected Environments April 2011

                  Sound Design Final Project Parsons The New School For Design May 2011 As an assignment to redesign the soundscape for a short film I used Meta. I enjoyed the concept of the original movie but considered a revision for the the sound. The focus was to design sounds that related to the imagery and emphasized the tension in each clip. Sounds were carefully selected and effected to match the imagery they were paired with. A soundscape was used to give the piece ambience filling in the audible space. Much attention was paid to panning and audible continuity. This rendition allows the visuals to be supported by the audible content, together they create a strong bond. The new audio composition along with the impressive visual content allows this piece to deliver an enhanced experience. Sound designed in Reason and composed in Pro Tools.

                    Tracer is a performance of dancing light and space through time. A premeditated soundtrack and video are combined with real-time dance and video, to produce an effect that skews the perception of spatial dimension. Carefully mixing a selection of songs, the soundtrack performs as a narrative for the piece, emphasizing moments of tension and rhythm. A video was then created to reflect the musicality of the mix, tediously aligned with the pattern of instrumentation. The soundtrack and accompanying video set the stage the live performance to take place. Dancing with multiple stets of different colored LEDs this motion of light was captured in real time by a camera on stage. This live video was then affected and superimposed on the composed video. The video layers were projected onto a surface of scrim that hung before the stage. An audience would see the combined video land on the scrim and spill into the stage where the dance took place. The dancing took place on stage, but the performance existed in the entire space through light and sound.

                      There has been a long-standing history in the design of the relationship between performer and audience. The space in which these two entities meet is articulated for their interaction. Historically, there has been a separation between performer and audience. Along with the concept of the non-physical fourth wall, there is usually a literal divide between the place for audience and performer. Yet, despite all literal separations of space, these two entities of a venue exist symbiotically. In the realm of live music, it is ever more apparent the performer relies on the crowd to transform their performance to the viewers expectations. As for the audience, they digest the media given to them, and react accordingly. This dialect between the stage and the audience is what enables performed interaction to manifest. An attention and interest in this interaction between the separated performance and audience became the catalyst for developing Touch Tank. The final rendition of Touch Tank was designed to immerse the audience in performed media. Video and sound surrounded them inside a spandex space. By touching these walls around them the audience could affect the video and sound played for them. Using the Microsoft Kinect, data was received when the walls of the space was touched. This data was sent to Max/MSP to affect parameters for the video and sound playback. The audience could interact with the performed media, in turn affecting their complete environment spatially and sonically.

                      What are Tags?

                      Tags

                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
