The Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum in London is designing a unique exhibition on David Bowie, supported by Sennheiser.
Entitled ‘David Bowie is’, the exhibition will open on March 23rd 2013 and take visitors on "an unforgettable journey of sound and style," with Sennheiser on hand to ensure an impressive audio experience for visitors.
“We are extremely pleased to work with the renowned Victoria and Albert Museum on this outstanding exhibition,” said Paul Whiting, president of global sales at Sennheiser. “We will not only bring equipment to this exhibition, but also our audio expertise offering visitors an immersive 3DAudio experience.”
Having recently celebrated his 66th birthday and launched a surprise new single, Where Are We Now, ahead of his new album – his first in ten years – Bowie continues to be at the forefront of the world of popular music, where he has been for nearly 50 years. The exhibition will look at Bowie’s processes, influences and creativity.
Sennheiser will support 'David Bowie is' with audio equipment and expertise to make the quality of sound a key part of the event. Following its run at the V&A the exhibition will then tour internationally, and Sennheiser will continue to provide equipment for the duration.
Visitors will be encouraged to immerse themselves in Bowie’s music, art, and style via Sennheiser’s guidePORT audio guide system. The system will integrate sound material into the tour and automatically provide music and narrative when visitors approach the exhibits.
The activity culminates in a Sennheiser 3DAudio experience – attendees will get to enjoy a spatial rendition of David Bowie’s music played through hidden Neumann KH series loudspeakers.
