“Sound in the digital age: from the opera of the future to car design”
DLD 2020 Conference Munich, Saturday January 18, 6:00 pm, Alte Kongresshalle, Munich

Sound is constantly surrounding us and crucial to our understanding of the world – from noise through music to sounds from machines and devices. How will sound play a role in designing electrified vehicles for the future? By what is sound design for machines inspired and in this context, what role does canonized classical music and opera play in today’s technological society? Why is it important to hold on to this art form and reach out to new audiences in a world defined by algorithms? 

Matthias Schulz, Artistic Director of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden, will be in conversation about the opera of the future and their new collaboration BMW Opera Next in the digital fields with BMW Sound Designer, musician and composer Renzo Vitale. Working together with composer Hans Zimmer, Renzo Vitale collaborates on developing the e-sound for the BMW Vision M NEXT and BMW IconicSounds Electric. Musician Henrik Schwarz will give insights on how opera can be developed and transferred into the digital age. 

“Sound Design gives us fully new opportunities to evoke positive emotions in our vehicles, which we also interpret as highly complex performative art installations. Under the brand name “BMW IconicSounds Electric” a visionary sound offer will be created for future electrified vehicles from BMW.”, – Renzo VitaleBMW Sound Designer
