Sound Design Project for Tenerife Museums

In 2013 CTND Design organized a multidisciplinary group to create a new global design for the Museums of Tenerife, including sound design. The proposal was based on a concept of frequency, both in the color scheme and sounds that were to represent each museum, from low volcanic vibrations to extremely high harmonics produced by a sonification of solar oscillations. The following material is part of the archive of photographs, color samples and sound recordings that we collected during our research on the island. Sound, Barbara Held, all photos, Yapci Ramos.
