BE OPEN Sound Portal Lands in Trafalgar Square

The BE OPEN Sound Portal has arrived in London's Trafalgar Square. A mysterious, black, rubberised cube, it hosts five soundscapes so that the public can 'switch on their hearing' to appreciate the most advanced audio technology in the world.

The portal is a co-production by the Foundation BE OPEN, a think thank to foster creativity and innovation and the London Design Festival and is one of the landmark events of this, the tenth anniversary of the Festival.

After its residency in Trafalgar Square, the Portal will be installed on The Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground at Chelsea College of Art and Design, where it will be part of an inter-college project to continue research into sound, with students generating new sound works that will be showcased in 2013 as part of BE OPEN's educational platform, BE OPEN Inside the Academy.
