Sonos: Diplo + Shane McCauley — Blow Your Head

Commissioned by Sonos Studio and Imprint Projects, Commonwealth Projects designed an interactive exhibition that displayed Diplo and Shane McCauley’s photographs and videos and highlighted the Sonos Playbar’s impressive capabilities. The compilation of imagery, entitled Blow Your Head, depicts the artists’ extensive travels through the diverse range of music and cultures around the world.

To translate the feeling of sensorial discovery, we designed a fully immersive space with seamless, floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall video projections and total sonic enclosure. The focus of the exhibition, a custom designed program, enabled visitors to select a song from Diplo’s Blow Your Head playlist and see the visuals react to the beat and sound waves of the music. The projected images correlated with the geographic location the song originated from.

Based on the success of the Los Angeles installation, Commonwealth Projects was asked to re-install the interactive program at Sonos Studio in Amsterdam as part of the week-long Amsterdam Dance Event.
