Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This report presents a sound installation designed to relieve stress in public spaces, which was tested on the ground on a railway station in Copenhagen. The design was developed on the background of studies on theories of stress and on the effects of sound and music on the mind, and in collaboration with the Danish composer Niels Eje, who created a beautiful original piece of music for this project only. To evaluate our design we have used quantitative and qualitative methods in the form of observations and interviews to analyse the impact the music had on the commuters. The result of our design solution indicated that the sound installation contributed to relieve stress on the railway station and contributed to a more relaxing atmosphere.
