Bowers & Wilkins on Vocal Vibrations

Bowers & Wilkins has posted a blog article that details the role of their technology in “Vocal Vibrations”. The immersive installation featuring music by composer Tod Machover and design by Neri Oxman opened on March 27th at Le Laboratoire in Paris. The project examines the relationship between human physiology and the resonant vibrations of voice.

Vocal Vibrations uses complex technology to layer audio, physical and other stimuli on top of visitors’ voices; audio, lighting and tactile cues will be triggered by sensors in specially designed, hand-held orbs, while measurements are taken for such responses as heart rate, breathing and galvanic skin response. Key to the experience are the latest 683 and 686 loudspeakersPV1D subwoofers and P7 headphones all supplied by renowned British speaker brand Bowers & Wilkins.

Machover said of the impact of these: “Bowers & Wilkins loudspeakers and headphones sound absolutely amazing in these spaces and really ‘make’ the experience.”
