have it with and 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 will it work the is on the high point plan special about sound is that we perceive a lot of it something consciously and of course that gives us a great opportunity that we can use sound to shake moods that middling thinking. 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 it was a phantom of fun in recent years he's concentrated on museums for the hashtag mine museum exhibition in stuttgart starts gallery for example he worked with students from the music academy to produce a kind of audio guide for smartphones. it's users get both information and using.

them to help guide it announces you 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 another asked in a 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. name it's 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 void but here we actually want this ambience of egg conditioners and ventilators and fluorescent tubes that will give off sound and we can stop there and ask couldn't and be some very very subtle ambience so it comes even closer to absolute silence and if you did nothing otoh yoko and i swear managed must. silence is in

12:51 pm
really interested in saida so i think the seepage i think wish. florian kepler is interested in nearly everything along with his museum projects the music designer is developing sounds for electric cars and visa horrific is a slight on and he supplied investigations can be turned the other way and be of interest music years while we can share a moment with ease driving algorithms into. it isn't. what i really love best 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
