Blogs about our ramblings on sound - Pink Faun



    Is there life after music? We all have our auditive off-days every now and then when music just won't sound the same. Sometimes the everyday noise of life itself sounds just about right to tug in on the couch or favorite chair and read a book or some interesting atricles. So to answer the initial question: there will always be. Just as there will alwas be music.

    To give your ears a well deseverd rest yet to keep your mind focused on everything 'sound' we created these page where we publish every now and then about our thoughts on 'the being of sound' and ramblings from the workshop.

    'It is warm, it is sincere, and it is real.'

    What does ‘sound’ mean to a graphic designer? It can mean almost everything, when listening to Michel. An audiophile, one could name him. When considering his most current activities, that seems most certainly to be true. Michel writes content about audio, reviews audio products for magazines and websites and is involved in product development in two audio companies. But to Michel sound is much more than work alone. ‘If there was no music, what would there be left?’ Read more

    The sound of your thoughts

    Sound is everywhere. We constantly hear sounds, even when we think it's quiet.

Not only is our brain able to generate meaning, it can also locate the source of the sound and filter out irrelevant noises... Read more
