List of researchers at Imperial College to be contacted regarding collaborations:

School of Sound

The 6th School of Sound symposium will be held 30 March - 2 April 2005 at The Purcell Room, South Bank Centre, London

  • Tom Holman - A researcher and inventor of cinema sound systems, Holman created Lucasfilm’s THX sound system and currently teaches at the University of Southern California. In “Surround Sound: its Past Informs its Future”, he explains how the history of surround sound formats influences future inventions, as inventions have a way of being made before their time, then being reinvented.


Second in series of all-day events examining the following contention: Noise is an unmapped continent in comparison with which everything we recognize as music remains a parochial backwater.

Whistling occurs across all languages and cultures

U.W.M is an investigation into the vexing problem of human-machine interface design. Whistling is much closer to the phoneme-less signal primitives compatible with digital machinery than the messy domain of spoken language. As opposed to pushing machines into engaging humans in spoken language, U.W.M. suggests we meet on a middle ground. Whistling occurs across all languages and cultures. All people have the capacity to whistle, though many do not whistle well. Lacking phonemes, whistling is a pre-language language, a candidate for a limited Esperanto of human-machine communication.

Sound Art Museum

The sound invades the scene of art and the artists' practice, triggering original, fascinating and, sometimes unforeseen, combinations. A new collective and international sensitiveness is seeking to gather and convey the reasons of these harmonies and these dissonances.

Radio Arte Mobile, located in via Conte Verde 15 in Rome, will open its doors to the public on occasion of the inaugural exhibition INAUDITA of the Sound Art Museum. Installations by Acconci Studio, Markus Huemer, Donatella Landi, Stephen Vitiello and Achim Wollscheid, will be presented together with artworks of Mario Airò, Massimo Bartolini, Bruna Esposito, Vettor Pisani, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Annie Ratti, Gert Robijns.

It will be displayed a selection of sound art from the Archive of the Sound Art Museum, which has already filed more than 350 international and national audio works.

During the event Radio Arte Mobile will broadcast a program from its website, (, with live interventions by Claire Staebler, Radio Day De Appel, Amsterdam; François Bucher, Bogotà; Larissa Harris, Center for Advanced Visual Studies, MIT Boston; Richard Crow and Lucia Farinati, IOR London; Ron Kuivali, Art in General New York; Daniel Soutif, Centro per l'Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci, Prato; Jan Åman, Joachim Granit and Carsten Höller, Färgfabriken, Stockholm.

In collaboration with Nomads & Residents a series of appointments in istitutional locations all over the world is scheduled, where the archived materials will be available for public use.

The curators of the Sound Art Museum are Lorenzo Benedetti free lance curator, Riccardo Giagni composer and musicologist, and Cesare Pietroiusti visual artist.

Acoustic Keyboard Eavesdropping

When it comes to computer security, do you have faith in firewalls? Think passwords will protect you? Not so fast: it is now possible to eavesdrop on a typist's keystrokes and, by exploiting minute variations in the sounds made by different keys, distinguish and decipher what is being typed.
