Listen to the Appliances of the Future

Last week, in collaboration with Disquiet, we turned our ears to the future of the domestic environment, tuning into the speculative sounds of the appliances of the future. The results, here on our last day of the Home of the Future, are worth a listen as you tour the home either virtually or in person.


The 30 tracks produced for the project range from electroid hums and abrasive bursts of some loosely identified architectural background hum, to warm tones like a new dawn chorus of future machines stirring both us and themselves into consciousness.

Check out all 30 in the SoundCloud menu, below, or click through to explore SoundCloud itself. [Disquiet]
