A constantly evolving archive and creative news feed, Dressing The Air monitors and reports on a diverse range of art-forms from cinema to sculpture, painting to furniture design, land-art to perfumery.

Boom Room - sound sculpting in Berlin

Boom Room - sound sculpting in Berlin

The Boom Room in Berlin uses an array of directional speakers in concert with movement sensors to create a body responsive, targeted sound environment. Whilst this installation is both hugely complex and somewhat monolithic in its presence, the idea of motion-tracking sound has very seductive possibilities. As we are awash with unwanted and unresponsive sound sources, the idea that environmental and recreational sound may be intelligently focused and articulated becomes very appealing.The refinement of our excesses and the sculpting of all aspects of our cultural "noise" will increasingly determine the livability of our built environments.
