Event: translating ambience

Sound design enthusiasts will love this event as part of Melbourne Design Week. Join local and international academics, artists and designers to both generate an ambience inside MPavilion and discuss recent research and practice regarding ambience and atmospheres.

Ambience design creates small, localised environments that provide sites of restoration and experiential difference from the everyday noises and hubbub of the city. The event will include a curated set of conversations running concurrently with an in-situ installation.

Hear a keynote talk from Shanti Sumartojo (Emerging Technologies Research Lab) and sound-artist Jordan Lacey, on the meaning of ambience in a design and architecture context. This will be followed by a live ambience installation featuring Philip Samartzis, Polly Stanton and Malte Wagenfeld.
