You are invited to listen

“You are invited to listen” is an acoustic experience designed to promote focused listening through the use of a spatial sound system. We used an array of 8 studio loudspeakers in conjunction with a motion capture system, to create a soundscape that reacts to the visitor’s motion within the space.

The experience takes around 5 minutes, and involves an evolving soundscape played over the 8 speakers. As you approach a speaker, the sound will “come into focus” and the other speakers will become silent.
