Random Walk, Unmasking Talk from Ron Herrema

15th June 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Poster showing the research method: "interrogation", "sonic inputs" and "Relational Playback" feeding into the "Archive / Database" and then moving to "Composed Outputs"

Ron is a composer and developer who combines algorithmic tools with a variety of materials, such as speech, field recordings, and electronic music. In so doing, he likes to apply randomness with a certain degree of control. In 2006 he composed a piece entitled “Let Freedom Ring”, which evolved into an 8-channel installation. In it, he combined voice recordings from the 2000 US Republican National Convention (culled from the Vincent Voice Library at Michigan State University) with recordings from telephone answering services.

Sound Matters is a research project that brings together an interdisciplinary community working in the creative use and re-use of sound specifically field recordings and speech. We aim to create together a framework that facilitates the interrogation and relational playback of sound in its own terms.

Sound Matters is a Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice (CRiSAP) project, funded by JISC.

Sound Matters is led by:
Ximena Alarcón & Cathy Lane.
