Spatial Sound Institute (SSI)
Contact: Paul Oomen
In 2015, 4DSOUND founded the Spatial Sound Institute (SSI) in Budapest, a permanent non-profit facility dedicated to spatial sound as an emerging field of study with increasing influence on a range of scientific, socio-cultural and artistic areas.
Over the years, spatial sound is steadily gaining recognition as a new medium that opens up ways of expression and communication with sound that were not possible before, allowing listeners to further their understanding of space and to develop more subtle, complex and intensive levels of awareness within their surroundings.
Located in the city’s Art Quarter, SSI offers an on-going artist residency programme, large-scale 4DSOUND studio, open-access library, a learning curriculum consisting of workshops, masterclasses and lectures, and hosts regular public events.
