Blindfold is a virtual and interactive sound installation in which the user can experience the situation of a blind person beeing forced to just navigate through sound.
It is not a game, but a sonic playground. By discovering the build up world of “everyday sound-aesthethics” (deutsch “Alltaegliche Klangaesthetik”) the user creates and experiences an interactive soundscape composition. Through “active listening” the user contributes to the composition with own associations and memories. It is a mixture between an art project and a trial of creating an interactive application only with sound. A trial how far we can go without using visuals.
The content of the sound concept is poetic, reflecting my personal creative “Auseinandersetzung” with the recorded sounds, regarding the concept of soundscape compositon.
The superior aim is to create a consciousness for everyday noises in our environment.
