Mood of Music

“There’s more to music than just sound,” says Joris Petterson. “Music is an experience; it’s like an atmosphere.” But as albums and record players make way for digital playlists, we miss out on a tangible context when listening to music at home. Joris took the categories in which playlists are often organised as a starting point for Mood of Music. This transparent device in the shape of an old-fashioned gramophone speaker not only shows the beat of the music, but also produces light, colour and scent in style with the selected tunes. Mood of Music intensifies the experience
of lounging and listening by stimulating various senses.
