Spatial Sound Institute
Born in 1983 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Paul Oomen is a sound researcher, composer, curator, inventor and writer.
From an early age Paul gathered experience in theatre as an actor and director, and as a musician trained in percussion, piano and singing. He holds an MA with Honours in Music Composition from the Conservatory of Amsterdam and Universität der Künste Berlin.
In 2007, Paul founded 4DSOUND Technologies, a creative development studio specialising in spatial sound. Over the last decade, he has increasingly started to dedicate his work to fundamental research on the relationship of sound, space and perception, which Paul fosters and advances as the Head of Development and Curation in the context of the Spatial Sound Institute.
His collaboration with Philip Beesley and LASG is focused on synthesising the fields of spatial sound and living architecture to find new exciting approaches to both disciplines.
