Soundscapes: Usomo & Philharmonie de Paris
Sound is an integral part of the majority of our human experiences, but often takes a back seat when it comes to the "visual" arts. For many museum-goers, the perfect sound for experiencing art is silence. How do soundscapes shape the museum experience?
On the one hand, sound is increasingly taking centre stage as museums look to create well-rounded interactive and immersive experiences for their new/returning visitors. "Electro: from Kraftwerk to Daft Punk" used sound to narrate a specific history of music. On the other hand, silence is also taking centre stage in a new exhibition by Usomo exhibited at the Museum of Communication in Bern.
For this edition of Vastari Connects, we will be chatting to these two sound-related exhibition producers about using sound to create a standout exhibition experience and what they think the future of sound design technology will entail.
