    each instance of its use can be considered a unique work of algorithmically generated sound art as well as a first step on the path to further mobile sound processing applications using Linux on handheld or wearable devices PANDev is conceived to remove the isolating intentionality of the specialist the artist the geographer the ecologist the phonographer the biologist the ethnographer the sociologist etc and replace it with a more accessible and holistic method of gathering sounds When activated PANDev will take random sound samples at random lengths and intervals A simple interface or command line can be given to specify approximate times but all specific recording is left to the application Connected to the PDA will be a set of binaural microphones hidden inside quite normal appearing walkman headphones The microphones will reproduce exactly the acoustic conditions around the wearer including such important psychoacoustic spatial cues as front back left right above below and relative distance Using PANDev To use PANDev all the user need do is input an approximate length of time to record and an approximate level of randomization The application does the rest and the user is free to travel through their environment or carry out their day to day life Whether the user chooses to seek out acoustically interesting settings or even perform for the microphone is of little relevance simply because they will not know exactly when PANDev is capturing sounds Thus a more natural approach is recommended The resulting sounds may be as banal as they are sublime or exciting but they are absolutely guaranteed to provide a unique insight into the user s acoustic environment Optional Extensions to PANDev Remixing Experience PANDev has several other optional extensions The first would be the ability to remix the sound material gathered at the end of the session with a number of general subjective parameters including rhythmic drone jagged smooth quiet loud linear disassociated etc An algorithmic composition can then be rendered and exported in WAV AIFF OGG or MP3 format It is important to keep in mind the extremely limited computing possibilities of a PDA no floating point processor for example which most audio processing applications depend on therefore these algorithmic compositions must be considered as both pushing the hardware to the limits of its capabilties as well as an excercise in getting the most out of very little Additionally they provide a new way of remixing daily existance with the aim of highlighting previously unnoticed details Cartographical Visualization The second requires the use of a GPS unit attached to the PDA from which PANDev would determine geographic coordinates to tag all sound samples gathered These GPS tagged sound samples could then be exported to a cartographic mapping system either in realtime via a network see below or locally when each session is completed For public exhibition a running audio visual display of the sounds gathered in the area could be maintained in a public or online space in collaboration Sara Kolster 03 a
