ROSHEN FACTORY — SOUND DESIGN
Concept design of a multichannel spatial sound system to accompany the artistic video mapping of the facade of the Roshen chocolate factory. During the daytime, the multichannel system provides the sonic canvas for a plethora of sound droplets and bites that interleave with the sounds of the city.
The Space Factory assists Les Éclaireurs with the concept design of the sound system, which consists of 10 full-spectrum frontal line arrays, 32 rear channels interprersed with a douzain subwoofers along a 120 m. wide x 16 m. tall facade. For second part of the project, the sound design in support of the magical skate park experience consisted of an authentic and slightly nostalgic sonic character with small clusters of pole-mounted horn loudspeakers. The park has ample contemporary network connectivity in support of temporary setup of a performance stage for amplified music.
Les Éclaireurs integrated all loudspeakers and electronics into the facade and bench, and assured the integration of the networked control of the multichannel sound files and with the cue system of the video mapping software.
The first sound scapes were developed with percussionist and composer Yi-Ping Yang, excerpts of which can be found via the links below.
