Dezeen curates audio at JamScape in Milan

Audio tracks and soundscapes submitted by Dezeen readers will play this week at JamScape, an experimental audio installation in Milan developed by Jawbone and Yves Béhar of fuseproject.


Following our call for audio submissions last month, almost 100 tracks were uploaded to Dezeen's SoundCloud account, from which Dezeen, Jawbone and Yves Béhar selected their favourites.


The tracks have been programmed to be played through five monolithic forms constructed from 1,642 of Jawbone's Jambox wireless speakers (above) in the installation, located in the Ventura Lambrate district of Milan.

Here's some text about the project from Jawbone:

Set within the emerging Ventura Lambrate design district in Milan, Italy, JamScape is a bold audio experiment that captures the idea of liberating and unleashing sound. Developed in partnership between Jawbone, Yves Béhar, and his creative agency fuseproject, JamScape uses Jawbone's new JAMBOX wireless speaker and its punchy audio as building blocks to create a uniquely social experience in the form of a sound lounge.

The installation fosters creative partnerships with a cadre of audio artists and enables them to express their ideas of music, improvisation, jamming, and social sound. All soundscapes were crowd-sourced via an open call posted on media partner Dezeen, Twitter, and blogs worldwide to phenomenal response.
