Event description

Description

Technology is not neutral. We're inside of what we make, and it's inside of us. We're living in a world of connections — and it matters which ones get made and unmade. Donna Haraway - 1991


Our lives are now lived out in webs of technology. And we are beginning to appreciate both the promise and perils of our technologically mediated existences. By learning to make our own tools we can choose which connections are made, how, when, with who and why.

Run by Soundcamp, a group of artist-makers interested in the potential for DIY technologies to connect different locations, spanning rural, urban and hybrid environments, this two hour workshop will centre around making a rugged Raspberry Pi based netradio — or streambox — and DIY microphones. Participants will learn how to download and install open source software, assemble the equipment, and ins and outs of live audio streaming. The workshop will also cover streaming with a mobile phone or laptop.

No technical skills are assumed, but workshops will engage the most ardent of tinkerers.

Participants will be invited to a soundcamp over the first weekend of May 2018, in which a streambox device will be used to broadcast the dawn chorus from The Living Coast (the Brighton & Lewes Downs UNESCO World Biosphere Region), as part of an international, ecological live streaming event, REVEIL.

This event is part of the Brighton Digital Festival, organised as part of the Humanising Algorithmic Listening AHRC network, in partnership with The Living Coast.

It is kindly supported by Sussex Humanities Lab, University of Sussex and Digital Music and Sound Arts, School of Media, University of Brighton.

Event audience - Relevant to arts and science projects that could benefit from a real time audio feed. Suitable for beginners and advanced - over18s only please.
