hack the barbican opera hack

Following the initial exchange idea for barbican hacking month 2013, and the visit there on Thursday 27.06 – it occurred to me there could be other interesting activities to do there..
One of the ideas(??) is the barbican opera, which I think works pretty simply..?
I will go around chatting with artists – not visitors – the actual people that come with ideas for the hacking month of august.. They will be asked to imagine operatic scenes linked or related to their activities in the barbican for certain spaces in the complex.. (spaces are yet to be determined, but am considering the possibility of these places to host cockroaches.. just an idea, perhaps a very stupid one..)
Whatever people tell me, will be recorded and become part of the opera..
eg
Case #1
How will you link space X to your hack as an opera scene?
— Humm.. I no nothing about opera and it really doesn’t interest me. Cheers mate!
(( This reply will go into space X’s operatic text ))
Case #2
How will you link space X to your hack as an opera scene?
— Can we sprinkle water there? The protagonist will play with plastic water guns!
(( This reply will also go into space X’s operatic text ))

How??
Well.. That depends probably really..
If a musician gets involved, perhaps we could put the texts into sounds, noises, music and maybe even singing.. If not, hey, I’ll read it, or leave usb sticks with the texts there for people to whatever with?

Might be an idea to get singers? ..or attempt to tempt barbican visitors to sing?

distance & silence collider (Brighton instance)

#ff0000;">INITIAL IDEA
We will create a spacetime-based archive of sounds, sound related stories, memories – or just recorded stories/memories that link to a space/place and time/period. eg my experience at the level in 1973.

These recordings will be made by Brighton Communities radio and web-tv, to be made as shows in their own right using these platforms.

To archive these shows, we will use a web based tool, a distance collider. This will allow people to add stuff to the archive, it will list it in terms of period and place (eg year, and location in the city) – however, crucially, when played initially, it will begin with all the relevant recordings (eg, for the level, or the level in ’73, or ’73) playing at the same time!
This will prompt people to use a time and distance equalizer type widget. This will allow people to create with the archive using their relevant sensitivities, and creativity. Each instance will be save-able and share-able
