AT&T MW Horns

These were the last of giant MW lenses or horns or whatever they are removed from the AT&T building in downtown Little Rock. These were definately microwave use but they are horn shaped. What flare did they use?
I'd like to use them as acoustic art piece but will likely end up as scrap. Sad...
Abit of local history.
AT&T history that has been watching over Little Rock for 50+ years has come down. In 1951 AT&T started an ambitious project to connect the country with 107 radio-microwave towers at a cost 40 million dollars, 375 million in today’s terms. The project was completed and connected the country with telephone and television transmission. With the advances of fiber optic technology, we abandoned microwave transmission. From what I can surmise this was the last array of microwave towers in Little Rock. These were located on the top of the AT&T Tower in Downtown Little Rock at the corner of 8th and Louisiana.

The Sound Of Denmark - Horns Of Unusual Size

Those Danes are at it again with their large horns. These massive horn sculptures would generate sound and energy from wind.
Art, music and energy generation may seem like unrelated entities. After all, no one imagines a power plant to be pretty, but that's exactly what the Land Art Generator Initiative has been spearheading in the past years with its portfolio of public art installations that also produce clean energy.
  I really hope this happens. Wow......
Great article by Kimberly Mok click here.

Yuri Suzuki - The Sound Of The Earth





The Sound of the Earth is a content of Yuri Suzuki`s spherical record project, the grooves representing the outlines of the geographic land mass.  Each country on the disc is engraved with a different sound, as the needle passes over it plays field recordings collected by Yuri Suzuki from around the world over the course of four years;  traditional folk music, national anthems, popular music and spoken word broadcasts. An aural journey around the world in 30 minutes.

 It has a rhythm but not sure you can dance to it. Still very very interesting. How the hell do you make a spherical record...

electronluv modern audio art




I am an electronluv.com stalker. The site has been vacant for a year or more. Last week I noticed a new site with links instead of a placeholder. It seems Josh has some new horns, a turntable, drivers, and many new goodies or at least audio porn. This is not for those of us light in the wallet. I don't see a problem charging large quantities of money for what electronluv creates because it some of the best art I have seen in years. For a tidy some of money you get fully functional sculptures which should go up in value over the years or at least that is my bet.



Go to electronluv.com and do some window shopping.
