Sound for Energy Projects 


Read HERE about the projects we are developing within Sound for Energy!

Watch Yann demo our Singing Shower!


The Singing Shower is inspired by the concept of a “Navy shower” which is a method of showering that allows for significant conservation of water and energy by turning off the flow of water while soaping.

In addition to providing an efficient way to control the water flow while hands and eyes are occupied in other tasks, this shower is great fun!

Workshop


What are the connections between our attitudes towards household sounds and our attitudes towards energy consumption and efficiency? Our first innovative workshop that took place in December 2021 looked into this. Read HERE a little more about it.

Sandra Pauletto was invited to deliver a seminar for Spår av Ljud event at Lund University. The talk highlights the links between historical sound design practices and the development of new digital sonic interactions in areas such as energy efficiency in the Sound for Energy project.

We are very pleased to welcome Vincenzo Madaghiele fromthe Politecnico di Torino and EURECOM, who will be working in the Sound for Energy project at KTH writing a Master thesis on "Behavior recognition andsonic interaction design for energy efficiency".


It is a great pleasure to welcome Yann Seznec to the Sound for Energy Team. Yann is an artist whose work focuses on sound, music, physical interaction, games, and building new instruments. He is now starting a PhD under the supervision of Sandra Pauletto in the context if the Sound for Energy Project.
