International Year of Sound 2020

International Year of Sound 2020

The International Year of Sound (IYS 2020) is a global initiative to highlight the importance of sound in all aspects of life on earth. It will lead towards an understanding of sound-related issues at the national and international level.

The Swiss National Sound Archives participate in the event with a reflection on the thin line that separates the analog signal from the digital one.

How to get better listening?

How to recognize high quality sound?

What are the secrets of the auditory system?

With the technical contribution of Musicdoor hifi Sagl, the Phonotheque answers these and other questions.
