Not only did we want to see sound but we wanted to feel it too. Thus we have experimented with transducer technology that converts sound into strong vibration that can be felt in the body whilst sitting or standing. This technology would form the foundation of a large vibrating stage and/or dance floor that allows people to feel sound in much more detail than is possible via any other means).
