Soundbowl

The Soundbowl is a sounding furniture.

The size of the Object is 160cm x 45cm / 5ft x 18inch.

A special loudspeaker system is integrated invisibly into the body of the bowl.

The inner shell becomes the membrane of the loudspeaker.

The auditor is imbedded in the loudspeaker while the object reproduces sound.

The perception changes in different ways.

The shell also absorbs partially the sound from outside. All kind of sounds are playable.

Project by Tom Förderer

Mobile

A floating movable sound sculpture.

5.1 surround units for professional wireless monitoring.

Outer shell: microglas

The shell- strength allows a sufficient sound resonance and stability to attach the technical components.

Different acoustic environments could be constructed to the audience.

Blindfolds help to concentrate on the sound.

The acoustic perception is concentrated on the floating of the sculpture and its sound. The attributes of the sounds are moving around the auditor.

Option for translucent or solid shell for inner lighting or video projections.

An audiovisual object for public spaces.

Project by Tom Förderer, Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design


ABOUT

Tom Foerderer profile picture

Berlin based composer, media-artist, sound designer, sound-man for documentaries and DJ, Tom’s life revolves around sound. After his first contact with music, in particular funk, big beat, trip hop and house music in the 90´s, he started to mix music.

After studies in media-art, at the University of Art and Design Karlsruhe, his acoustic output spread in different ways:

He produces music for videos, films, theatre plays, and is also working as a sound designer. He creates lush, minimalist sound carpets for sound sculptures and sound installations.

Tom is also crafting deep, ambient-driven, electronic tracks with Hendrik Vogel as the Duo “Nugath”, as well as working with vocalist Tias Melchers since 2012 performing live as “Tias&WaitinTom“.

On the decks he brings a deepsmoothfunkyvibrationalelectronic DJ-set to the dance floor, or plays downbeat for all kinds of events.
