Good Vibrations – Johann Diedrick and Christie Leece

Good Vibrations was a tour and acoustic exploration kit for the less audible sounds of New York City. The kit includes a mobile listening device with three different types of microphone: a contact mic, a hydrophone and a probe mic. The variety of microphones encouraged exploration of the city’s cracks and surfaces.

Johann Diedrick and Christie Leece are graduate students at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program. Johann makes sound installations and sound-based performances, mostly dealing with real-time audio synthesis and acoustic ecology. Christie’s work merges her interests in archaeology, fieldwork, animal studies and new technologies, and frequently involves sound.
