Phantom Islands — A Sonic Atlas
Phantom Islands are artifacts of the age of maritime discovery and colonial expansion. During centuries of ocean exploration these islands were sighted, charted, described and even explored – but their existence has never been ultimately verified. Poised somewhere between cartographical fact and maritime fiction, they haunted seafarers’ maps for hundreds of years, inspiring legends, fantasies, and counterfactual histories. Phantom Islands – A Sonic Atlas interprets and presents these imaginations in the form of an interactive map which charts the sounds of a number of historical phantom islands.

About – Sonic Field
Sonic Field is an interdisciplinary network of resources around listening, sound studies, sonic arts, aural culture and audio technology.

Created in Colombia by merging previous projects of David Vélez (Field Reporter) and Miguel Isaza (Sonic Terrain, infinite grain). Currently cultivated by a nomadic team of contributors publishing since 2010 under creative commons 4.0. Supported by ÉTER.

The Next Big Tech Revolution Will Be In Your Ear | Co.Design | business + design
Rolston suggests that the nature of this private interface will change your relationship to AI. You’ll naturally rely on it for more secretive topics—whereas you might not want your Apple Watch reminding you it’s time to take your birth control, a voice that only you can hear telling you the same information becomes perfectly acceptable. And slowly, any task that would be rude or embarrassing to Google in front of someone else on your phone, becomes invisibly helpful when managed by an AI in your ear.At the same time, having a seemingly all-knowing voice whispering in your ear will make it very easy to set unrealistic expectations for that voice's functional capabilities, and that poses a problem for designers. In everyday life, we constantly set realistic expectations for the people around us based on context."Like Siri, I keep giving Siri a chance, but it’s the one or two times she doesn't work a day that I get disappointed . . . so I don't use Siri."So it’s unclear if it’s even possible to supply the necessary computational firepower needed to make these assistants ubiquitous. If the infrastructure can only support a small subsection of users, how will companies choose who gets the tech first? And how much smarter will those people be than the rest of us? Mars believes these rapidly improving in-ear assistants will accelerate the server bottleneck. What happens next is anyone’s guess.

Hearing Is Believing -
"The aural/oral revolution won’t mean the end of the book any more than the e-book did. Besides, the “non-text-based” work of literature has a long tradition. “In the history of mankind, words were heard before they were seen,” wrote Albert B. Lord, the author of “The Singer of Tales,” a classic work of scholarship that traced oral literature from Homer through “Beowulf” and the tales, still recited today, of Balkan poets capable of reciting thousands of lines of verse by heart.

Progress doesn’t always mean going forward."

Kinetic Synthesis -- Ryan McGee - MAT - UCSB
Kinetic synthesis is introduced as a novel sound synthe- sis paradigm based on the spatialization of moving sound sources at high velocities along periodic orbits. The sim- ulated Doppler shift of moving sounds is used to achieve audio-rate frequency modulation synthesis and is termed Doppler FM. Another component, spatial granulation, uses amplitude envelopes from distance-based gain attenuation to decompose high velocity sounds within large boundaries into a stream of spatialized grainlets. By drawing trails of the sound trajectories, it is possible to correlate visual patterns to the resulting timbres. Thus, kinetic synthesis provides a visual, spatial means of control for modulation synthesis and granulation.
