Geodesic Sound Helmets

Geodesic Sound Helmets is a series of interactive and immersive personal sound environments. This project is being produced in collaboration with Ben Landau (industrial designer, Melbourne), Eva Cheng (DSP & research engineer, Melbourne) and James Laird (technical advisor & engineer, Sydney). Geodesic Sound Helmets is supported by the City of Melbourne. The research behind the project, and some previous work (such as “Noise Cancellation: disrupting audio perception“) is about re-introducing people to environmental noises. I’m interested in how individuals isolate themselves with technologies like mp3 players or smartphones (eg. listening to music on public transport).
