Whether you’re an expert maker, artist, or simply interested in learning how easy it is to get up and running in sensing, mapping, and using soundscape data for music creation, please join the Citygram-IBM hosted Noisescapes Workshop & Hackathon by bringing your laptop/notebook computer. We will provide the rest: access to NYU’s Citygram’s API to enable sound data streaming from sensor nodes in areas such as the NYU campus. We’ll have Raspberry Pi’s “nodes” available with onboard audio capture equipment streaming sound data.
We will be using and introducing our software as well as third party apps including Supercollider, for mapping data to sound with a global goal of contributing in this idea of “soundmapping our world” for fun, for understanding soundscapes, for mitigating urban noise pollution, or to make music or visualizations through real-time data streams.
