“Unfairly Used”, one of our works planned for soundpedro 2020

We’ll be at soundpedro again in 2020, but preparations for the event are rather…fluid…at the moment, thanks to ongoing pandemic abatement policies in force. Stay tuned!

Our files have moved!

We’ve been planning to transfer our library of free content to the greater commons—and, in the process, simplify these pages—for some time now. We’re moving our files to public media sharing and collaboration platforms:

Our MediaWiki and ccHost file migration is nearly complete, and by June 1, 2020, we intend to shut down both wikiGongMain and wikiGong Sounds. We’ve tried to provide links from our pages here to all our materials at their new homes. Of course you can contact us with any concerns!

soundpedro 2019: Bees of the Dead

wikiGong performed with an extended ensemble wearing environmentally-generated audio. Jacob‘s long fascination with apiculture–he is an active member of the Long Beach Beekepers–and our incipient dread of the impact of species collapse suggested our theme for soundpedro 2019. The event was sponsored by Long Beach FLOOD‘s annual soundpedro project.

More details are on our soundpedro 2019 project page.

soundpedro 2018: Aeolus Woke

In 2018 we returned to FLOOD’s 2018 soundpedro event, presenting a collection of wind-driven instruments on the hills overlooking Angels Gate. Aeolus Woke invoked the Greek keeper of the winds.

A few documenta are on our soundpedro 2018 project page.
