The initiative Eufonia from Germany is an interdisciplinary platform that explores the relationship between art, science and culture through the medium of sound. Eufonia’s Sub_Bar brings together hearing, hearing-impaired and deaf artists to create original works using only sub-frequencies.
Their compositions are played through powerful subwoofer systems, transforming venues into musical pressure rooms for an unprecedented listening experience that activates the whole body. These performances and installations induce a different kind of focus, and the haptic stimulation provided by the music leads to a distinct sense of relaxation and alignment of body and mind.
The inspiration behind it stems from the belief that curiosity, creativity and dialogue are necessary for artistic, scientific and social evolution. They explore the past, current and future uses of sound in diverging areas of people’s daily lives, ask crucial questions and bring together key people, technology & institutions to answer them.
