A laboratory in sound and art
Sound Art Lab is an environment for artistic development and production focusing on sound. Our dedicated facilities are designed to support artistic projects in sound across different genres and formats. In our education lab we offer classes and workshops centering on sound and listening.
Part of the City of Sound
Sound Art Lab is a national lab for sound and art in The City of Sound, Struer. We offer residencies, temporary workspaces, courses and education, all centring on sound art.
Sound Art Lab officially opened on August 27, 2021. However the building already has an intricate and interesting history, as we are housed in the former administration building of B&O here in Struer, Denmark.

Soundtracks in education
How can sound art be used constructively in science teaching, and how can the artistic processes elevate public education by adding more creative and innovative thinking?
45 school students from Limfjordsskolen went to a workshop with sound artist Alex Mørch where they built sound installations with motors, contact microphones and transducers that examined the natural frequency of objects in their surroundings.
