ISM Hexadome

Immersive Sound and 360° Visual Exhibition

With installations by Brian Eno, Tarik Barri and Thom Yorke as well as live performances and installations by Tarik Barri, Holly Herndon and Mathew Dryhurst, Frank Bretschneider and Pierce Warnecke, Lara Sarkissian and Jemma Woolmore, Ben Frost and MFO, Peter Van Hoesen and Heleen Blanken, CAO and Michael Tan, Pfadfinderei and René Löwe.

The ISM Hexadome is a new format and at the same time a completely new tool. Nine performances and installations have been especially conceived for the project by international sound and visual artists. Within the ISM Hexadome, each work opens a door into a world crafted in sonic and visual detail, demonstrating the power of spatialisation for sound.

Developed by the Institute for Sound & Music in collaboration with Pfadfinderei and ZKM | Center for Art and Media, the ISM Hexadome is an immersive exhibition fusing art with technology, unlike any previous experience within a museum context. Throughout 2018–2019, the ISM Hexadome exhibition is scheduled to travel from Berlin to museums and festivals worldwide.
