Audfly’s Directional Audio Speaker Art Crossover To Remold Suzhou "Sound Image"

  "The Sound All(e)y" is an artistic work created by three teachers from the Dept. of Digital Media of the Art College of Soochow University to show "Suzhou Sound Image" from different angles. The work uses Audfly’s directional speaker “Juyinbao” as the core element, mixing the sound sources recorded in various alleys into a song, uses the super-directional sound characteristics to realize the division of space with sound to reshape an imagined alley.

  The author divides the work into four chapters: “Min”, “Nan”, “Meng”, “Boom”

  shaped in a non-narrative way to show the symbiosis between tradition and modernity.

  The mutual presentation combined Audfly’s Directional Sound Speaker with infrared induction, the realization of sound super-directional transmission, the audience walking as a process of searching, all together increased the work’s interactivity and interest.

  When walking into this alley which is simulated sounds by the directional sound speaker, you can hear the light birdsong, the hurried footsteps, the daily trivialities, the gossip, the wind chimes, the drizzle, the endless cars, the gentle Kunqu Opera... as if you are currently in the alleys of Suzhou, feeling its local customs.

  What's more interesting is that people in different positions hear different voices. This is achieved by Audfly’s speaker principle of super-directional transmission.

  This cooperation is no longer limited to normal applications (directional voice interpretation and navigation), but integrated into artistic creation, completed a significant application breakthrough.

  Technology empowers art, and art feeds back technology. Audfly’s Directional Sound Speaker helped the work to reshape a Suzhou alley in a limited space. The work allowed our speaker to find new application value in the creation.

  "The Sound All (e) y" is on display in the exhibition "local soundscape: sound geography of Suzhou" in Hanshan Art Museum of Suzhou.

  We sincerely invite you to experience the charm of the works, the mystery of directional sound, and the same but different Suzhou alley.

  The Sound All (e) y works are provided by three creators.

  The last part is provided by Hanshan Art Museum.

  Sincere thanks to Mr. Chen Gang, Mr. Mao Yadan, Mr. Li Xinlin and Hanshan Art Museum for the artistic support.
