International Sound Awards: The Holocaust Galleries
We are feeling honored to be awarded another International Sound Award! After we've received an award for 'Sounds of Silence' in 2019, our work for 'The Holocaust Galleries' has now won in the category 'Soundscapes and Ambient Sound'. We are very proud of how the whole thing turned out and it's an honor to receive this award for it.
'Das Museum als Soundscape' at Swiss Alpine Museum
Ramon and Jascha each gave lectures at Swiss Alpine Museum in Berne during the workshop «Das Museum als Soundscape». Ramon was talking about sound scenography in general, Jascha and his colleague Claudia Glass put their focus on their recent project «Second Layer SoundWalk».
Immersive Audio Guiding System (IAGS) tested in an exhibition
We have been collaborating with iart and FHNW on the Innosuisse research project "Immersive Audio Guiding System (IAGS)". Now it has received its first baptism of fire at the exhibition 'Camille Pissarro: Das Atelier der Moderne', which recently opened at the Fine Arts Museum Basel. Thanks to IAGS, the exhibitions' soundscapes can now be experienced interactively and three-dimensionally.
HELGA: Jascha Dormann on Sounds of Silence
After being postponed several times, the conference for specialists working in scenography and communications finally took place at HELGA Basel on October 22. Together with Rolf Indermühle (ZMIK), Jascha Dormann of Idee und Klang Audio Design spoke about the work on Sounds of Silence, our past exhibition at the Museum of Communication in Bern.
Our publication is printed and available!
After a year in which we invested a lot of energy and heart and soul in the work on our publication Sound Scenography | Klangszenografie - The Art of Designing Sound for Spaces, we can now proudly hold the freshly printed copies in our hands. From now on it is available for everyone interested in the topic of staging spaces and environments through sound. The book was published by avedition, a specialist publisher for architecture and design, and can be ordered through us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sound Scenography – Publication
To mark the 15th anniversary of Idee und Klang Audio Design, we have created a publication that is dedicated to the topic of sound scenography, and at the same time reflects on our work with sound & space. The publication will be released in March 2021 and will be published by avedition – Publishers for Architecture and Design. Follow this link to a first impression of the book you can hear – a binauralized version of John Cage's piece 4'33''.
Earth at its Limits - Special Exhibition
The new special exhibition 'ERDE AM LIMIT' ('Earth at its Limits') opens at the Natural History Museum Basel on November 20. Visitors are already attuned to the topic by means of a sound installation in the stairwell. In the exhibition rooms proper, people will experience idyllic 3-D soundscapes of still intact natural environments, and they can also witness the sounds of the forces of nature when listening to a binaural audio rendering with headphones.
Competition at IWM London
We won the competition for the conception and realisation of the entire sound world of the new Holocaust Galleries at the Imperial War Museum London! Our work will be part of a complete redesign of the exhibition. We are working together with an excellent project team consisting of Fraser Randall, Casson Mann and Squint Opera. The opening of the Second World War and Holocaust Galleries at IWM London is scheduled for 2021.
