SONiC will also feature two interactive sound projects – SONiC:Thicket and UrbanRemix:
Get in the mix with UrbanRemix—a participatory sound project. Use your smartphone to discover and record sounds on the way to and from, and in the neighborhoods around SONiC performances. Go online to create your own personal mix. The resulting mixes will be showcased on Friday, Oct. 21 AfterHours at Roulette and will become the focus of several in-school workshops and showcased on SONiCfestival.org. UrbanRemix is a project of the Music Technology and Digital Media programs of the Georgia Institute of Technology and is directed by Jason Freeman, Carl Disalvo, and Michael Nitsche.
iPhone/iPad users can download Thicket:SONiC, a mobile audiovisual world of texture, movement, line and tone that is part art piece, part toy, part wind chime, and part spiderweb. Thicket:SONiC is a special free version of the award-winning Thicket app created by Interval Studios. (It's the same software we used to create SONiC’s animated logo on SONiCfestival.org.) You can download Thicket:SONiC directly from the App Store on your iPhone or iPad. Thicket:SONiC will be on display at most events during the festival, and featured on Friday, Oct. 21 Afterhours at Roulette. For more information visit the App Store page.
