imaging w/sounding analog-to-digital"soundtracks"
Very soon to the our past; the Nano world is promising w/generational artists' and scientists' collaborating.
"especially the sounding V-pair (what gauges?) anchored to the massive Victorian boulders and am accepting either a gentle breeze, terrain or a sub-terrainian vibrations -triggering standing wave's reverbs"
Leif Brush has, for decades, acquired a matching vocabulary whose pace evolved together with his soundworks. Both epicentrally re-radiate those sought after and then found highly amplified signals from an array of audible constructions: sensor-laden terrain instruments. These are conceptually identified as unique catalysts and conduits for recontextualizing Earth's wave and vibration "sound tracks." Particular focus is on analog artifacts from terrestrial and extraterrestrial resources which he hopes can outflow separately but along side traditional out bound aural streams currently available via Internet, cable, digital broadcast And handhelds. His current Nano-based quest seeks, in realtime, an on call 2way availability of the overwhelming and perpetual data-laden analog science artifacts which could be Y-connected onto a public Internet "pipe". The flux status he's advocating would continue his ground work for making sounds available "on through invisible boundaries, from specific Latitude and Longitude nodes which would be UTC synced." He's advocating (using neighborhood multiple Mesh+nets) that we all could use for audibly sharing through net-constructing a most obvious and missing aural aspect of our being earth guests. It's a special activation of a long term memory niche for "our" vibrations we have in common while riding on "spaceship earth." http://www.d.umn.edu/~lbrush/asensors.html http://www.d.umn.edu/~lbrush/windinstances.mov http://www.d.umn.edu/~lbrush/terraininstruments.html http://www.acowo.org/archives/artists_l/leif_brush/
"That diode idea sounds good. Does it work well? Any cons such as colouring the response?
I did try the LED limiter thing but in my limited testing found that it thinned out the sound (ie. I lost bass response). It kind of seemed to undo some of the…"
"Leds are good photo-generators, so any light that gets in will add noise. Perhaps covering with heat shrink would prevent such a problem. The led should start to conduct around 1.4 volts and would make a good clamp. Myself, I use diodes…"
