In November 2014, sound artists Matthew Griffin and Eric Powell travelled to Dubai, United Arab Emirates to present a workshop on a new, interactive sound map as a part of ISEA (International Symposium of Electronic Art) 2014. A major aspect of the piece was to travel around the city of Dubai and collect field recordings, which would then be played back using a LEAP Motion infrared controller.
Recently they sat down to discuss the experience. Included throughout the conversation are examples of some of their field recordings.
Griffin and Powell are both board members of CASE and together they founded the organization Electricity is Magic. More information about their Dubai project and upcoming projects can be found at electricityismagic.com.
