‘soxels’ is an accoustic media facade developed by that transforms visuals into auditory images. the key components are the sound pixels, or soxels, a scaleable array of speakers, and a feed-in point for streaming an endless number of audio-channels to provide each speaker with an individual sound. DSP technology opens the spectrum from processing natural sounds, transforming them, or generating artificial sounds. the developed software is able to mix all integrated sound layers on any speaker anywhere on the wall.
the ‘soxels’ project was developed and prototyped with a matrix of approximately 1000 speakers by simon schießl and felix hardmood beck. it was presented with the italian soundartist andrea bassi during the DMY international design festival berlin 2010.
