3:48 pm
be 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 well it worked the design the hype and 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 the shape our perceptions something florian can investigate 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 fact in recent years has 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 smart but once. its users get both information and music

3:51 pm
they're really interested in saida so book us into submission i wish. florian kepler is interested in nearly everything along with his museum projects the music design that is developing sounds for electric cars going to be so horrific is a slight on the supplied investigations can be turned the other way and be of interest music years while we can experiment with these driving algorithms. it isn't. so good when 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
