In spring of this year, Sennheiser issued a call for applications asking artists to submit sound projects for its Future Audio Artist Program. Now, the first participants to take part in the program have been selected.

The jury, meeting at Sennheiser headquarters in Wedemark near Hanover, engaged in extended debate. The gathering went on for hours, which was also a reflection of the excellent quality of the projects submitted.
Art collector Daniela Hinrichs, curator Prof. Dr. h.c. Walter Smerling and Sennheiser CEO Daniel Sennheiser were thrilled by the multifaceted projects. "We found many of the concepts compelling. We particularly liked it when projects spoke to us directly, when we were intellectually challenged. When many senses are awakened at the same time, an innovative art experience can unfold. We received projects from both young and established artists. We were extremely impressed by the variety and quality of the submissions. It was a difficult decision, but the winners have now been determined." The jury of the "Future Audio Artist Program" will present the artists who are being sponsored by Sennheiser.
As an audio specialist, Sennheiser supports emerging sound artists in their creative process. The Future Audio Artist Program is meant to bring together art and music, and to break down barriers. “The artists should experiment with audio, music and sound and convey their message persuasively. Audio has been treated shabbily in the art world, probably because it is hard to exhibit”, says Daniel Sennheiser, the CEO of Sennheiser and a member of the jury.
