2:48 am
each of you when i get the impression we do better at things we've never done before and where the end result is completely uncertain will it work if yes how well it worked the design to help them plan special about sound is that we perceive a lot of it somes consciously and of course that gives us a great opportunity that we can use sound to shake moods from it linking current. and how do sounds shape our perceptions something florian kept investigates in his studio the stuttgart musician and composer develops new sounds. all types of clients. ok go back to the beginning please because a phantom of. in recent years has concentrated on museums for the hashtag mine museum exhibition in stuttgart starts gallery for example he worked with students from a music academy to produce a kind of audio guide for smartphones. it's users get both information and music.
2:49 am
and tell it or not is you know in a sound environment that's different from say the parking garage we've just been in on your way to the museum it's from your own every day life and you're an ostomy place where you can move through the parts being done and experience the works of art hanging on the wall hanging from a different kind of perspective you. names a question. but isn't the endless barrage of sound more annoying than a relaxing silence. florian caplets says there is no relaxing silence in the museum voiceover he was fair we actually want this ambiance of conditioners and ventilators and fluorescent tubes that will give off sound and we can start there and ask could and be some very very subtle ambience so it comes even closer to absolute silence and if you did nothing you tonio called women it's must. silence is in itself
2:50 am
a sound and museums temples of culture where reverent silence is expected from visitors. in mannheim xnu constant museum florian kept encourage his music design students to go a step or two further. the idea was to make the museum a club where the art isn't in the eye of the beholder has but is co-created by them . this into active aspect is reflected in the principal work florian couplet conceived for the mannheim could starla the collect. should wall here the viewer can virtually experience almost every work in the museum's collection it's nice to in the sheets and this is not only underestimated we're going to have of course only a very small part is on display but now everyone can come in at this point they don't pay admission rather than tell people about the work the museum has and then lock most of them away sometimes for decades but now everyone can see what they're
2:51 am
really interested in sr so book us into submission i think they should. florian kepler is interested in nearly everything along with his museum projects the music designer is developing sounds for electric cars going to be so horrific it's quite often misapplied investigations can be turned the other way and be of interest music years while we can hash merriment with these driving algorithms and to meet. a group of men once again what i really love is when you see how both areas relate to and don't exclude one another. florian traveled a long way before he finally brought art and commercial success together originally the sound inventor wanted to be a rock star. for a time his band held the pictures was the opening act for blood and bob geldof but the big break never came in hindsight it may have been for the best florian kepler
