The Hexadome exhibition is designed to offer a 360-degree AV experience

Berlin's Institute For Sound And Music has revealed the programming for its ISM Hexadome exhibition, PSNEurope sister publication Audio Media International has reported.

The Hexadome is an immersive exhibition designed to provide a 360-degree audiovisual experience focused on art and technology, as part of an ISM campaign "to redefine the museum experience."

The project features a projection system designed by Berlin's Pfadfinderei studio and a multi-channel soundsystem from the ZKM Institute For Music And Acoustics called the Klangdom.

The exhibition at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin will run from March 29 through April 22, featuring performances and installations from the likes of Brian Eno, Thom Yorke & Tarik Barri, Holly Herndon & Mat Dryhurst, Ben Frost & MFO, Frank Bretschneider & Pierce Warnecke and Peter Van Hoesen & Heleen Blanken, plus Lara Sarkissian (AKA foozool) & Jemma Woolmore, among others.

Once the exhibition ends, the ISM says it will tour across Europe and North America.


InfoComm 07 said to be the "biggest AV trade show in history"

US: Preliminary figures released on the final day of last month's InfoComm exhibition in Anaheim, California, have led the organisers to claim that the 2007 event constitutes "the biggest AV trade show in history". At least 31,300 visitors journeyed to a three-day exhibition - run in parallel to the annual conference - that highlighted new or recent launches from manufacturers including Soundcraft, Crown Audio and Onkyo Professional, reports David Davies.
