IN THIS EPISODE, WE'RE KINDA STRUGGLING TO HEAR EACH OTHER ABOVE ALL THE NOISE.
We speak to Nick Boulter and Ken Fong, acousticians at Arup, about designing for sound.
Anthony Clarke and Joe Gauci-Seddon of Bloxas (“a practice for empathetic and experimental architecture”) talk us through Sound Field and the Sound of Dementia installation, a collaboration between Bloxas and Arup to build empathy for the ways people with dementia experience sound in their everyday environments.
Thanks to Arup for providing us with recordings from Sound Field, some of which are heard in this episode.
We first heard about Sound Field through the Sound of Dementia installation at MPavillion, part of the event series ‘Designing the age-friendly city’ by Sibling Architecture.
We also hear short clips from Madelynne Cornish, Operations Manager for the Bogong Centre for Sound Culture and a lecture by Philip Samartzis (sound artist and Artistic Director of the Bogong Centre for Sound Culture), speaking at RMIT Design Hub about Super Field. Philip and Madelynne co-curated Super Field - an exhibition conceived by the Bogong Centre for Sound Culture in collaboration with RMIT Design Hub.
Mauro Baracco, of Baracco+Wright Architects, tells us a little about the design choices behind Super Field’s fit-out. More on that in the next episode.
Supercast music is composed by After Midnight Limonata, and supplied to us by the Houses in Motion label.
Hosted by Eugenia Lim, Jana Perkovic and Bec Fary. Produced by Bec Fary.
