What an incredible summer it has been..... learning more and more about air pollution, co-writing a futuristic sonic narrative, developing sonifications in pure data, developing new air pollution visualisations, launching a new work that brings this all together and cycling around Middlesbrough with Kaffe :)
We took a bit of time to reflect on the journey in these blog posts on the BRI website, sharing sonification approaches and mobile air pollution findings and frustrations:
Read more about the work 'No scent or colour' about the Enviro Bikes and how they work and to get a copy of the air pollution data we've been gathering.
Kaffe Matthews and I are starting work on a new commission with The Bicrophonic Research Institute, creating a new sonic bike project for Middlesbrough with Auxiliary Gallery.
We're heading up to Middlesbrough this week for a one week residency, to start developing the project. We're thinking about air quality, noise pollution and generally what else might be in the air of Middlesbrough. The plan is to kit up the sonic bikes with air pollution sensors, to not only collect data, but to make their air quality audible.
We're hoping to meet new people who'd like to get involved. If your based in the area, come and join us - we're holding an open day on Sat 22 Feb 2020. There will be vegan chili and drinks to enjoy too.

The work will launch at MIMA for Sonic Arts Week July 18-25 2020, Orange Pip Festival August 2020 and Middlesbrough Art Weekender September 24-27 2020
