Postponement of the Audio Branding Awards 2015

Unfortunately, we found out yesterday that the Art Directors Club (ADC) Festival, the biggest German advertising event, takes place from May 19th – May 23rd, 2015. We know that participants of the Audio Branding Awards also attend the ADC Festival. Therefore we decided to postpone the Audio Branding Awards to May 27th – May 29th, 2015 as we want to avoid conflicting schedules. We will announce more details about the venues, keynote speaker, workshop topics, accommodations etc. soon. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your understanding.
Your Audio Branding Academy team.

Summer Of Sound Conference in Berlin


What are the meanings of silence? How can we use silence for brand communications? How can brands stage silence to communicate different meanings? These were the topics that Dr. Cornelius Ringe from Audio Branding Academy adressed at “Summer Of Sound” Conference in Berlin on September 19, 2014. His talk was one of three, followed by talks from Sven Sören Beyer (phase7 performing.arts) and Johannes Scherzer (TAUCHER Sound Environments).

Supporting programme of the scenography summit was provided by hands on sound with their “Interludes” and on their “Soundbikes”. Highlight at the end was the impressive sound installation of the brothers Abel, Carlo und Max Korinsky in the giant Berlin Cathedral at midnight.

All in all the event proofed that Berlin is a centre of sound art and sound studies. Thank goes to the organizers from PLOT magazine.
