Australian artist Andy Thomas specializes in creating ‘audio life forms’: beautiful abstract shapes that react to sounds. In this animated short, he visualizes two recorded bird sounds from the archives of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision [beeldengeluid.nl] in Hilversum.
An increasing amount of sounds and images from European archives, museums and libraries are available for creative re-use. For the Europeana Creative Challenge, we’re looking for innovative projects that use archival material available via Europeana (europeana.eu) in a creative way. Send in your own idea to create, for example, a mash-up, an app or a game at ecreativechallenges2014.istart…. The winner will be aided by specialized professionals in realizing their project.
