Sounds of the Future



We each hear designed sounds every day without realising; beeps, clicks and clunks that help us to understand the objects we interact with.

Many of the sounds we hear in film, TV and other media are created using surprisingly ‘everyday’ objects; from the classic sound of two coconut halves suggesting a horse walking, to the manipulated sounds of a film projector and an old television that created the iconic sound of a lightsaber.

So what will the future sound like? Every future object and interaction will use sounds that someone is yet to design, and the young people at Hot Chocolate Trust have been using these sound design methods, repurposing the sounds of everyday objects, to imagine the sounds of a future city.
