Enrique Tomás sought to combine sound, art, and the feeling of visiting a museum with the advent of his concept project Sound Campus, which sees its virtual debut this week.

Over 120 artists answered the call with submissions ranging from live sound installations to live performances. A third of those works were ultimately selected to become part of the exhibit, which was built in partnership with the University of Arts and Industrial Design Linz.

Set in a dynamic virtual world, Sound Campus creates a shared experience among attendees who navigate the Titanic-shaped gallery as teddy bears. The surreal environment will focus on "uneasy" experimental sounds as its sonic theme. Live performances will also take place throughout multiple days of the exhibition.
