Intercultural patch development

July 28th, 2008

During the past week, we have been working on a creative development of a new work with Singapore based theatre company, The Necessary Stage. As part of this development, we worked with the soundpatch that we have developed so far for the Garvan Synapse project. We find this sort of cross-modal, intercultural ( culture both of disciplines and countries) development very useful in our work. The collaboration with TNS foregrounds ideas of translation- subtitling for us, in addition to considerations of culturally iconic sound indicators/references. This week working on our Garvan Synapse material in Melbourne, will be informed by the considerations of the past week working with the team from Singapore. This seems particularly pertinent as Filter is published in Singapore this week at ISEA.  Wish we were there too.


Questions about data

July 24th, 2008

These past couple of weeks have been reviewing techniques for data analysis, especially the time-based analyses that are indicators of process, and have been investigating the Affymetrix Gene Probe Database just to familiarise ourselves with the meaning of the codes for each probe set.

There are many thousands on each chip, randomised throughout the space of the chip — we need to know more about these to poll our data intelligently (?!).

Also investigating a neural network type of weighting analysis using some of the readily available analysis software that can plugin to the software that we are using.

Our patch is now completing a kind of loop in that we are finding it helpful to map specifically the gene probe label to the particular sounds we are hearing (and easy text read). We are also placing this expression (?!) of data back into the laboratory using the images that we collected on our last trip to the Garvan.

As this is a live render, its a little difficult to represent on this blog site but please stay tuned.
