1979 Anik/Westar satellite triangulation...

                  The significant Robert Smithson's lecture in 1969,
a Robert Raushenberg "Oracle" sound sculpture in the Art Institute of Chicago concluded with him suggesting that "artists should have their own satellite," and that sound had entered a major national gallery. The Smithson talk was held in SAIChicago's Fullerton Hall. In 1972, Leif and Gloria's MFAs were granted and the world's first National Communications Satellite: Anik A1 -"little brother" - from Hughes Aircraft, number HS333- was launched from the Canadian wilderness this same year. My subsequent fall university teaching occurred that fall at the University of Iowa (City) and Gloria taught at the Scattergood Friends School in West Branch Iowa . This 1979 conceptual comemorative- '79triangANIKwestarSATS.aif.mp4 - acknowledges his intitive vision.

re more

Following an intense period of analog familiarization with the range and enormity of available sounds in nature and exploration of space, I tried the only techniques then available to me, tape manipulation and speaker placements. The only coloration that I employed in this sound handling was through equalization, balancing and combining in mix-downs usind Sound Designer and Deck software. I have always monitored using nearly neutral sensors, my interest has been in configuring and juxtapositionings and in the presentation of sound in selected contexts- both human made and outdoors.   In the 1980s I constructed sound with 200-speakers through an Intel 8080 microprocessor which was used for teleperformances via satellite both indoors and out. My work centers around spatial concerns and I think produces an awareness of the psychological effects of sounds. The early microprocessor allowed for the manipulation of specific sounds through a cubed structure, the portable teleSuonoquad had lots of 5 inch speakers and which touched down in different environments. scroll down to teleSuonoquad: TeleSuonoQuad 1986-1990 acoustic shaping realtime...function: Portable recording studio (ear cleaning version: flautist and forest edge ambience) technique: Five planes of speakers and a cool grass carpet; on playback, synced reel-to-reel 4 track TEAC 3440 and 2 track REVOX PR99 host designated and wired speakers, e.g., outputting into 1 or assorted speaker clusters which are interchangeable at the behest of a person or persons occupying the wall less cube. Scenario: Six tracks in six months. Six tracks in as many days. Either way, time well spent evolving a spatial metmorphoses. Time, date, day are UTC/GMT synced. Hint: The birds and et cetera really circulate in your otherwise confined but flexible head space. You can't miss hearing the effects of the additive layerings. Walls giving way to realtime. tbc

Phenomena occurrences are monitorable from many points along latitudinal and longitudinal positions. Audio-mirroring of specified coordinates, synchronized as to day, date, WWV, UTC or GPS time code, will be by cell phones in realtime monitoring unique wind as on-call throughput sources to the Internet. Synchronous listening would be monitor-able using different 4-up web browsers from many coordinated Earth sites. Alternatively, individuals could listen-in on any current number of specified sequences; or, simultaneously line all the cue-tones on their multiple software tracks and later spatially listen to the full complement of sounding details from major migrations and/or Earth-caused vibrations(defunct) ). Computers generally will be able to give and take, with each collecting cellphone clusters (defunct) ) or giving any realtime "cluster(s)" as passaroundsounds.
