Sound Scenography


We design exhibitions.

While listening is our starting point, we design sound with all the senses. With this holistic understanding of sound in staging space, we translate narratives into embodied spatial experiences.

Spatial narratives


We understand space not as a container but as a dynamic relationship between exhibited objects, the built environment, atmospheres, and the people who explore it.

Auditory communication


The meaning of a particular piece of information always emerges from the context in which we experience it. Depending on our perspective in space, a sound can become both information or context.

Inclusion


Sound is a versatile medium for providing complementary access to information while simultaneously reducing visual information overflow. We balance loads between the various senses and modes of communication.

Scenography, a sound art


Our interpretation of space and spatial narratives is shaped by our listening experience. The sonic, the visual, the olfactory, the haptic – all carry information in different forms. Along with the other senses, every sound we hear in a particular environment necessarily co-produces our experience of that place. In staged space, sound as a medium opens a broad context of meaning: coded as speech, in the guise of identifiable sounds such as footsteps on the beach or the cry of a seagull, but also less explicitly through ambient atmospheres, contextualizing soundscapes, or a subtle reverb that creates the sensation of closeness or distance. All the various kinds of auditory communication co-constitute the exhibition space. As a natural language in spatial communication, sound is inherent to scenography, the art of staging space.
