First day at Sound and Vision: Experiencing the experience

Tuesday 16th of February was our first day working in our office at Sound and Vision. Obviously, the main priority was to go into the experience and see what all the fuss is about.

3FM Radio

We went in with the whole group and started at the 3FM radiostation pavilion. This part asks you to fill in your date of birth and some other info about your favorite music etc. Then a bedroom is created in the next part of the pavilion, using your data and using project mapping to project a room that suits this. Aniek and Valentina got a room for people born in the early 90’s, and listened to songs like Move like Jagger (because this is what they listened to when they were 16). Manou on the other hand got a completely different room because he is born in the 80’s. Therefore he got music from ‘The Killers’. See the pictures below.

Starshow

Then we went into the Starshow. This is a part of the museum where you can enter a ‘show’ as a famous television host. The door opens, lights go on and you just walk out and wave to the camera. Video’s of us doing this will follow later this week!

TopPop

We also made our own music video, with the song Roxanne by The Police. The guys in the team did the techniques, lights, camera viewpoints etc, and the girls performed as they never did before. The video itself will also be posted here, later this week.

We wondered around the museum for 2 hours at least, just looking at everything they have to offer. Our first impression was very positive, from a visitors’ point of view we enjoyed the museum a lot. But we haven’t gone in to the museum with a critical perspective. So it will be interesting to see how that turns out and we’ll document this in our blog of course.
