usomo is a part of Maison Gainsbourg in Paris, which opens its doors to the public today.
Maison Gainsbourg is the townhouse of Serge Gainsbourg (1928–1991), the distinguished French singer-songwriter, actor, composer and director. Using our spatial sound system usomo by FRAMED immersive projects, Soundwalk Collective has now transformed it into a poetic audio-based experience. FRAMED is also responsible for the spatial sound concept, the spatial sound production, the planning and the integration of the system.
Guided by the voice of Charlotte Gainsbourg, small groups of visitors at a time explore the historic family home of the artist. Walking through and exploring these spaces is immersing oneself into the mind of a legendary creative genius. usomo enables the full auditory immersion into the scene and thus, full concentration on and maximum experience of the time and the place, as if having been transported directly into the past. The sound experience is designed in such a way that every room is imbued with a sense of being present in the past, of bringing the past into the present. It is a very personal and authentic experience, a homage to a father and an extraordinary artist as well as a gift to his audience.
