Decode: The Joys of Listening Whilst Watching

by Scanner

fan club exclusive


To compliment the exploratory nature of the DECODE show, The Joys of Listening Whilst Watching took the visitor through just a portion of the magnificent riches of the collection in the V&A Museum in London via a soundwalk. Combining the natural environment, recorded in 3D/Binaural sound, with new compositions that aimed to resonate with each of the spaces, the work sought to engage and play with a vast terrain, unfolding a new narrative within the Museum.

The work was commissioned by the V&A to celebrate the exhibition Decode: Digital Design Sensations. Read more in the programme to have a better idea of the scope of the event in February 2010.

Unreleased and best to enjoy on headphones 😀
