What is Future of Sound?
Future of Sound is a not-for-profit organisation that provides a forum for the discussion of new and convergent art forms. By creating immersive experiences using state of the art sound technology Future of Sound showcases leading practitioners in the fields of music and audio design, collaborating with artists and scientists.
Future of Sound was originally conceived by Illustrious Company, established by Martyn Ware (founder member of both The Human League and Heaven 17) and Vince Clarke (member of Erasure, Yazoo and Depeche Mode) two of the leading figures in electronic music. Clarke and Ware feel that experimental sound can be more widely used for interdisciplinary artistic activity, inspiring new ideas and ways of working.
Future of Sound’s aim is to introduce artists working with interdisciplinary art forms to each other, and to create a wider audience for and awareness of new convergent art forms.
