How Design Sounds

Group show
Forum Arte Braga, Braga (PT)

Rui Calçada Bastos


How Design Sounds is an opportunity to reveal the sonic sensibilities of designers and artists, in an attempt to achieve a communion between the arts. An exhibition in which sound is the main protagonist, and establishes relationships, or resonances, between the various works. The works sometimes offer us delightful melodies, and on other occasions, now muted, they invoke memories of long hidden and forgotten sounds.

Taking everyone by surprise. “”How Design sounds” intends to be a corollary of emotions, and sensory experiences, which, through sound, reverberate to an experience that involves multiple hands and tonalities. In this manner, sound serves as an aggregating element, which unites design with art, and art with poetry.
