IDEAMA Sound Path
Augmented Reality Hearing Stations
A Sound Path Exhibition at the ZKM_Media Lounge
→ Information auf Deutsch
→ Opening Hours of the ZKM_Media Lounge
In the four audio centers of the IDEAMA Music Archive, works in the field of Musique Concrète, electronic music, computer music and music for loudspeakers, are staged and made available in a special way to the audience. On an U-formed beam which surrounds the entrance area of the ZKM_Media Library, four exemplary thematic fields from the IDEAMA data bank become visible.
Quadratic codes, which resemble QR codes, are installed on the floor − whereby, each work has a specific code as well as an illustration of each of the works in the form of an oscillation graph. The works are experienceable with the aid of an on-site iPad by becoming audible and visible in 3D simulation as augmented reality experience, once the iPad camera registers the code.
The Concept and Implementation of the Sound Path were development in 2012 in the context of the ZKM exhibition "Sound Art. Sound as Medium of Art" by the name soundARt, 7 Hearing Stations in Augmented Reality.
IDEAMA was initiated in 1988 by Max Mathews, Johannes Goebel, and Patte Wood, all of them at that time members of Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics/CCRMA. The aim of IDEAMA’s collection was to preserve the most important and most endangered early works of electroacoustic music (up to about 1970) and to make these works publicly available. In 1990, CCRMA and the newly founded ZKM set IDEAMA up as a co-operative venture.
