All About David Bowie and Sennheiser

For the exhibition David Bowie, Sennheiser has created a unique sound experience in the Martin-Gropius-Bau Berlin. “Sound and vision are crucial for the overall experience,” says Avantgarde’s project director in Berlin, Sarah Zimmermann. Watch the video and find out more about the extradordinary partnership between Sennheiser, the Victoria & Albert Museum London, and Avantgarde.

“We wanted to create an entirely new audio-visual experience, something that embodies Bowie’s pioneering spirit”, is how curtator Victoria Broackes describes the revolutionary Sennheiser audio system. Portable headphones – the so-called guidePORT system – play sounds and music according to the position of the listener within the exhibition.

However, sound and objects don’t just merge in the headphones. A full-on 3D sound experience merges a complex sound system in the exhibtion with the sounds of the headphones to create a unique three-dimensional atmosphere.

„The most striking thing about the show is that it is brought to life by technology and united in sound and vision in a way rarely seen in a museum”, the New York Times summed up the exhibition experience.
