Entry Description

There are many great sound art works and installations yet there’s no place that is dedicated to the sound art. Museum of Sound is a Museum that aims for the display and promotion of sound art and sound installation as well as a performance space for sound artists. The site of this museum is located in Chelsea and it’s right by the Highline. I take the pause moments of Highline and the resonance implied in Karheinze Stockhausen’s music as inspiration to design the space. I create many stop moments and in each stop moment people will see the view differently or hear a different sound art. I also try to make people experience the resonance of sound in the space. This museum of sound strives to bring a new experience to appreciate sound art in this Museum of sound through pause and resonance.
