Artist and Inventor Alex Braidwood explores the relationships
that people in urban areas have with noise and investigates ways in
which these relationships can be transformed. By a process of
research-through making, he develops objects, installations and sonic
experiences that enable listeners to change their relationship with the
noise that surrounds them. The Noisolation Headphones mechanically
create a personal listening experience by composing noise from the
listener’s environment, rendering it differently familiar.
