A masterstroke by sound installation artist Zimoun. Minimalist yet tuneful art; an opportunity you must not miss, to experience something beyond extraordinary.

Zimoun- The Man Behind the Sounds

Zimoun is an award-winning sound installation artist, sound sculptor and architect hailing from Bern, Switzerland. His expertise lies in using industrial objects like cardboard boxes, old furniture and plastic bags with a combination of mechanical objects like DC motors, wires, microphones, ventilators and speakers to create unique art installations that resonate pleasant sounds to please the audience. His works have been exhibited in a range of countries including US, Korea, Germany, UK, Belgium, Italy, France and Taiwan to name a few.

His work is an amalgamation of his love for music and art. The installations are minimally designed which emanate soft, low sounds repeated in a pattern. The designs are simple yet reveal careful research on complex sound behavior.
