To promote the city of Mannheim and celebrate its 400th anniversary, Stadtmarketing Mannheim GmbH sent an oversized multimedia cube, “Klang der Quadrate”, across major German cities. The technical highlight was the hands-on “Sound Lab” where the public was invited to explore Mannheim’s anniversary slogan, “see – hear – create”. The overall concept and communication design of the installation was developed by Atelier Markgraph; the interaction- and systems design as well as implementation was done by MESO.
Within a base area of about 64 m² and with surroundings of about 400 m², visitors were invited to create their own version of Mannheim’s anniversary song “Meine Welt” which could also be downloaded from the internet. The concept of the “Sound Lab” was based on two different kinds of handy cubes, “sample cubes” and “record cubes”, and three working zones.
