COST-SID Summer School on Product Sound, Finland

The Summer School on Product Sound was held at the Design Factory at Aalto University in Helsinki from August 23-26 2010.

Under the expert guidance of Frauke Behrendt,  Inger Ekman, Sylviane Sapir and I worked out a soundwalk around the location, and here we are listening to some interesting low rumbles reflecting from gratings on these large square blocks.
