Distant Mate­r­ial Orches­tra

For our recent design work­shop series at HSD we stayed at home and gained a new perspec­tive on our imme­di­ate, famil­iar surround­ings by listen­ing to the acoustic prop­er­ties of every­day objects, common handles and textures. Check out the results of the student work at www.d‑m-o.net. Simul­ta­ne­ous play­back of the videos in the desk­top version allows indi­vid­ual scores from mate­r­ial sounds.

Mifuma Grain Waltz

We have been support­ing Misch­fut­ter­w­erke Mannheim GmbH in all design matters since 2012. All the more reason for us to be pleased that our latest prod­uct stag­ing assign­ment will help us to remem­ber the Corona period as a masked ball in the cellar of our friends at grown videoa­gency. The whole film and further insights “Behind the Waltz” are avail­able here.
