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. Those new forms of sonic communication are often co-financed through sponsors and funds and connect directly to art institutions and partners from industry and services.

Sofilab is also a place of education. Programmers, Designers and business people learn to use their aural sense, to understand and communicate through sound. Technical eartraining, music design and sound practices are among the subjects taught.

Under the leadership of its founder, critically-acclaimed composer and sound designer Mathis Nitschke, real-world practicality and highest audio standards are ensured.


Sofilab started out 2015 as the digital programming studio for the projects by music composer and artist Mathis Nitschke. He felt the desire to give the team members a label and platform to demonstrate the ensemble character of these projects.

For the realization of the Mixed-Reality-Techno-Opera MAYA in 2017 Sofilab became the name of the limited company Sofilab UG which then produced this risk-driven endeavour.

Currently Sofilab is opening up itself to externally commissioned creative services like producing music and sound for games or immersive live-communication events as well as further developing new immersive music-theatrical experiences.


Sofilab works at the interface of art, technology and marketing.

Sofilab produces music for film, theatre or event productions – from electronic music to large orchestral scores, liberated from any genre constraints, from Mono to fully immersive Surround.

Sofilab records dialog, sounds and music and creates audio productions: CD’s, film mixes, radio plays and interactive applications.

Sofilab programs adaptive music and sound design for apps and games and codes binaural 3D-Audio in combination with head-tracking for virtual reality and augmented reality applications.
