Sofilab is a Munich-based sonic design studio and innovation lab working at the crossroads of art, industry and technology. It initiates projects and starts research on the topics of digital music practice, media and sound art, interactive communication, industrial sound design, audio-guided medical appliances and scientific data sonification.
Current projects deal with the challenges of adaptive music, location-specific sound and audiophile 3D immersion for virtual and mixed reality environments.
As a think tank, an international network of artists, technologists and entrepreneurs work together with clients and partners. They learn by prototyping and experimentation to create experiences and applications that are truly innovative on many levels.
