Post-digital sound and concrete poet Jörg Piringer was born in 1974 and currently lives in Vienna. He is a member of the institute for transacoustic research and the vegetable orchestra (das gemüseorchester) among other organizations.
Created in 2011, Unicode shows all displayable characters in the unicode range 0 – 65536 (49571 characters), one character per frame. After you spend a few minutes with it, I suggest you leave it running while you work elsewhere and enjoy the sound.
Another of Piringer’s projects is Konsonant, an mp3-album as well as an app for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Mac. You can download the whole album for free and for a small charge download the interactive app-version here. Piringer invites you to play with letters and sounds, build acoustic machines, control morphing clouds and experiment with the alphabet.
These and other projects at the intersection of publishing and digital technology (P—DPA) are found at http://p-dpa.net/. The index is maintained by Silvio Lorusso, who systematically collects, organizes and keeps track of experiences in the fields of art and design that explore the relationships between publishing and digital technology. He writes, “The archive acts as a space in which the collected projects are confronted and juxtaposed in order to highlight relevant paths, mutual themes, common perspectives, interrelations, but also oppositions and idiosyncrasies.”
