Owner / Sound Scenographer

Ramon De Marco (*1975) studied Audio Design at the Basel University of Music from 1995 to 2000. Afterwards he was in charge of the development of the Sound Design Studio at SRF Virus (Swiss National Radio). From 2001 he was project manager in the music department of Fabrica (Benetton's communication and research centre) in Treviso, Italy. In 2005 he founded Idee und Klang Audio Design together with Daniel Dettwiler. 2022 he founded the startup AUDIOBREEZE together with Peter Philippe Weiss.

Ramon's work focuses on multidimensional compositions for spaces and intelligent sound designs for media productions. He realised international scenographic projects such as the BMW Museum in Munich, the First Wold War Galleries at the IWM London, the 'National Museum of Qatar’ in Doha or the awarded exhibition Sounds of Silence at the Museum of Communication in Bern. 

As a sound artist he has also realised projects for various art exhibitions and festivals, such as the Italian Cultural Institute in London, the Outer Ear Festival in Chicago, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Experimenta Design in Lisbon and Klang Moor Schopfe in Gais (CH). In 2022 he was invited as Artist in Residence for Pro Helvetia in Venice. His work focuses on sound in space: Therefore he uses field-recordings as sources to study the condition of places and loudspeakers as musical instruments to produce spatiality under special acoustic conditions.

Ramon also regularly gives lectures on sound scenography at international conferences. Since 2010 he has also been teaching sound design and acoustics at the Institute of Interior Design and Scenography at the FHNW in Basel and the FHGR in Chur (Switzerland) and is a guest lecturer at various other universities. In 2021 he published a book with the title: Sound Scenography - The Art of Designing Sound for Spaces.
