sound scenography is the art of staging space with sound
Sound can call forth emotions and evocative moods, but it also provides meaning and information. Sound can single-handedly tell a whole story. The sonic actors at work include spoken word and narration, atmospheres that provide context, sound effects guiding the visitor’s attention, music that entices emotions, and technology and interactive techniques that create spaces where people can navigate through the auditory scenery.
We at TAUCHER understand sound not only as an individual element that makes up the 'design' of a performance event (such as light, costume, stage set, etc.) but as a scenographic discipline in its own right. An artistic approach concerned with the various aspects of sound, sound scenography is complementary to the visual design in a media installation or live performance and concordant with their experiential and spatial composition. Merging the ideas of theatrical scenography with the discerning techniques of film sound design, sound scenography is the art of staging space with sound.
