The design of a hands-on exhibition that invites the visitor to become a sound designer for Trash Bot, a street-cleaning machine. Made Music studios designed a series of melodies, ambiences, and special effects for the user to choose from to communicate Trash Bot’s actions and express the machine’s personality. The goal of the exhibit was to teach the importance of sound as a design medium to communicate both functionally and emotionally. The installation was showcased in the exhibit Hear, See, Play: Designing with Sound at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in 2018 and was created in partnership with the visual design studio Marcos Key.
