Sometimes you want to do things that no one has done before. Sometimes you just need to connect things.
These days there are few problems that can't be solved with a little bit of code. We use different programming languages to build interfaces, intelligent players, motion-to-sound interpretation, aural environments in VR and much more. If a project needs code in order to achieve optimal functionality, we like to include the coding and prototyping as an integral part of creative disciplines such as composition and sound design.
Interaction enhances the potential of a performance, its unique character and makes it a memorable experience for every visitor.
We use sensors that track crowd movement, a single person’s position and even the motion of body parts. Our customized playback-software allows us to precisely shift ambience, to alter dramaturgic development dependent on people’s movement and to play a piano by dancing.
Music manages to trigger emotion much faster and more accurately than virtually anything else. Its capacity to do so has always driven composers all over the world to express what cannot be said in words.
Music supports. Counteracts. Adds a wink to a serious issue. Shocks or surprises. We believe that a good composition needs three things: sophisticated craftsmanship, empathy and understanding for feelings and situations and a good amount of taste and a distinctive musical signature.
The ear is responsible for orientation and our sense of balance. By designing spatial sound in virtual spaces and real locations we engineer how a space is perceived and how a story is told.
Are you confused by VR, 360° sound, binaural, spatial, 3D and the like? It seems as though nobody uses the same word for the same thing. We will help you choose the appropriate format and tools for your project to achieve the best possible outcome and manner of audio distribution.
Music is a language. Like language, it conveys messages. The art of music production is to guide the musician to say what needs to be said, and to capture a high-quality version of that message on tape in order to further craft it into the desired format.
We are passionate about providing the right setting, equipment and staff to record extraordinary music and sound. If budget constraints don’t allow a full-band recording, we have a huge collection of software instruments and in-house solutions to enrich and complete your project.
Sound Design is essential for creating impressive worlds and immersive spaces. It is more than just aesthetics, it is about coherence and meaning.
Therefore we base our sound design on the current state of research. We analyze soundscapes with all their psychological, biological and aesthetic impact on social life. We dive into hidden caves with our hydrophone, record from a bird’s eye perspective in a balloon or shape synthesized frequencies in our studio.
By this, we create sonic elements for engaging experiences; be it for architectural spaces or virtual worlds.
We have many years of experience in post-production.
Sound design, special effects, foleys, music and dramaturgic ideas and understanding are used to emphasize or juxtapose what you see.
We work with binaural-headphone sound for VR experiences like 360° movies as well as classic formats such as surround-sound. To create soundtracks in state-of-the-art systems like Ambisonics, Dolby Atmos and Waveform-Synthesis (IOSONO), we have the facilities of several partner companies at our disposal.
