Sound Design

Sound Processing is deeply involved in Sound Design with the design group Urban Sound Institute (USIT). This group consists of five persons, each with a different background in sound design.

  • Catharina Dyrssen (PhD) - architect/musicologist, Chalmers Göteborg
  • Anders Hultqvist - composer/sound artist, Academy of Music and Drama
  • Staffan Mossenmark - sound artist/composer, Academy of Music and Drama
  • Per Sjösten (PhD) - acoustician/sound designer, Sound Processing AB

USIT works partly as a research unit, currently with fundings from the Swedish Research Council, partly as a consultant group. A fundamental question is if/how sound design can be used as an architectural element in urban/public spaces.
