THE SIX DIMENSIONS OF SOUND
We wanted to create an experience explaining the art and science of sound. We didn't want it to be just another landing page but more of an immersive audio experience. The goal was to give the user a feeling of floating through a space while being told a story and having spatial audio give the whole experience more depth.
Client: Studio Resonate
Role: Early Art Direction and Ideation. (Production and development by Laura Keller)
I was attached to this project in the very early stages of strategy and ideation. There seemed to be a little bit of struggle of how to approach the whole thing and I started drawing the concept below on a conference table we were all working on.
We knew we were going to explore different aspects of sound and I mentioned that it would be cool to try and convey "floating" in a space, where ambient sound surrounded you and felt directional. As you clicked one of the options, you'd float closer to it with the audio surrounding you making you feel as though you're moving through a physical space. While there is linear path to follow, being free to wander to whatever section had to also be an option. Then folks got excited and evolved the idea further to the amazing experience is has become and I was happy to be a part of that early process.
It was amazing to see the talented group of folks take the little kernel of an idea that we had and produce such an immersive and educational audio piece. If you haven't experienced it, please go do that now.
