What is the relation between design and sound? And how does the spatial display support compositions of sound?

During a one-week session for the Graphic Design Department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, the studio space of fanfare was transformed into a mix of a charging station, a display monster, a sound machine, and a broadcasting station. The central exploration of the week was the link between design and sound, display and action. Throughout the days, live sound transmissions and semi-automated earcons were created, and connections between indoor and outdoor gazing were explored. All of these tools came together in the final setup and outro of awɪ sɔː ðə saʊnd.
