Spatial sound is steadily gaining recognition as a new medium. It is a creative discipline that opens up ways of expression and communication with sound that were not previously possible, allowing listeners to further their understanding of space and to develop more subtle, complex and intensive levels of awareness within space. Over the next decade spatial sound will develop into an established area of study with increasing influence on a range of scientific, socio-cultural and artistic areas.
Using the epic coordinates of Berlin, MONOM aims to engage a wider audience in the potential of spatial sound as a more visceral and human way of experiencing art and music.
To this end MONOM has been formed in partnership with 4DSOUND and the Spatial Sound Institute, Budapest, 4DSOUND’s facility dedicated to the research and development of spatial sound. As a facility dedicated to this new discipline, the Institute is a catalyst for emerging applications with spatial sound.
In addition to presenting MONOM’s own commissioned performance residencies in Berlin, MONOM will host monthly Spatial Sound Institute and 4DSOUND developed programs.
