NOISE CONTROL / SOUNDING SURFACES
What can be done to make our world a little quieter? How can surfaces and walls produce audible sound, also in the bass frequency range? How do you realize a complex idea with simple tools? Can a technological solution be achieved by a sculptural approach? How relevant is aesthetic experience for our auditive perception?
The SOUND lab is shared by both students and academic staff for the exploration of sonic phenomena and their auditive perception. Spatially separated for enabling undisturbed work with sound, the SOUND lab moreover is an extension of the (Do-It-Yourself-) DIY- Lab (click link). Both laboratories are cross-linked, we cultivate an active exchange in all projects, there is access to the respective infrastructures (machines, equipment, tools).
In its function as a research and prototyping laboratory the SOUND lab is in use for the ongoing project and exploratory focus ‘Noise Control/Sounding Surfaces’ (click link). Additionally it can be used for free experimentation with sound in the context of teaching and artistic work. The SOUND lab provides f.e. professional audio monitoring, mobile recording equipment, microphones and measuring instruments.
