A series of geodesic spherical structures with speakers placed in the vertices between the triangular panels of each. Listeners sit within the domes, experiencing sound circumferencially and distally—always outwards/surrounding. The spheres are designed to be unenclosed and thus acoustically transparent, enabling a listener within to experience the soundscape beyond the playing loudspeakers (ideally a park or other outdoor public space) as an extension of that presented by the dome itself. This work emerges logically from previous REF outputs Studies on Canvas (REF2007) and DOME (REF2013).
