Vicky Clarke is a sound artist working with sound sculpture, DIY electronics and field recordings.Her work explores methods and systems of experiencing material sound; manifesting in performances, installations and self-built machines.Influenced by constructivism, futurism and musique concrete, she explores the form and function of materials; uncovering patterns & properties as sound sources, signals and interfaces.On her recent R&D project ‘MATERIALITY: Exploring sound sculpture to interface the physical and digital in music making’ funded by Arts Council England, she created a performance system for sound sculpture, materials and live electronic music, working with researchers at the National Graphene Institute to create a graphene musical interface for Ableton Live, premiering at Music Tech Fest Stockholm.Vicky is co-founder of Noise Orchestra, a sound art project developing electronic Noise Machines that translate light into sound.
Lenticularization of an image allows the viewer to be presented with additional visual information within the same space, dependent on angle.
He is the Managing Director of MI·MU, a company dedicated to placing human expression at the heart of music technology. in Computer Science from Queen Mary University of London.
He has overseen the development of the MI·MU Gloves and is one of the key developers of the MI·MU software ‘Glover’. Prior to working for MI·MU he worked as an academic researcher in the Centre for Digital Music at Queen Mary, exploring the use of machine learning in live music performances.
The MI·MU Gloves are a fusion of textiles and electronic sensors.
Combined with dedicated gesture detection and mapping software, they offer a new and flexible approach to the control of music and visuals through intuitive human movement.
And it has seven protons, and it also has seven neutrons. So the different versions of a given element, those are each called isotopes. So anyway, we have our atmosphere, and then coming from our sun, we have what's commonly called cosmic rays, but they're actually not rays. You can view them as just single protons, which is the same thing as a hydrogen nucleus. But every now and then one of those neutrons will bump into one of the nitrogen-14's in just the right way so that it bumps off one of the protons in the nitrogen and essentially replaces that proton with itself. But this number 14 doesn't go down to 13 because it replaces it with itself. And now since it only has six protons, this is no longer nitrogen, by definition. And that proton that was bumped off just kind of gets emitted. But this process-- and once again, it's not a typical process, but it happens every now and then-- this is how carbon-14 forms. You can essentially view it as a nitrogen-14 where one of the protons is replaced with a neutron. It makes its way into oceans-- it's already in the air, but it completely mixes through the whole atmosphere-- and the air. And plants are really just made out of that fixed carbon, that carbon that was taken in gaseous form and put into, I guess you could say, into kind of a solid form, put it into a living form. It gets put into plants, and then it gets put into the things that eat the plants. Well, the interesting thing is the only time you can take in this carbon-14 is while you're alive, while you're eating new things.
