The “Sound” exhibition at the Design Museum Holon in is an exploration of the relationship between sound and design. Museum visitors are immersed in sound and sight in a sensual experience created by no fewer than 100 speakers strategically located around the building.

Sound is an integral design element of space; it helps define it – for example, the sound of a muezzin or church bells. It is harder to close one’s ears than it is to shut one’s eyes. We are surrounded by and flooded with sounds, amounting to a contamination of noises, says Maya Dvash, the museum’s chief curator. The exhibition is designed to sharpen our focus; to look back at the changes in music from stationary to portable, prompting us to really listen to sound and music, not just take it with us and hear it.

I’m recording an album. It’s sort of techno mixed with garbage – you, know, intense in-your-face music.
