Hurly-Burly: An Experimental Framework for Sound Based Social Networking
MetadataShow full item record
This project deals with the topic of social interrelations; its aim is to achieve a deeper understanding of the underlying mechanisms of these relations through the use of sound and mobile devices/ubiquitous computing. The proposed framework follows two interdependent directions: 1) using environmental sounds as input data for context analysis, 2) using sound as an output to express results (sonification). This project is part of a long-term research project concerning sound based social networks, conducted at the Research Centre for Science and Technology in Arts (CITAR). The aim of this paper is to share some initial results, both practical and conceptual in form of a related work overview on social networking technologies, a conceptual design for a Facebook® application based on the project initial idea (including an IPhone® graphic interface proposal) and last but not least, an experimental framework for data communication between an IPhone® and a computer (using Pure Data through RjDj).
