The Sound Studies Lab was founded in 2011 by Holger Schulze.
The foundation of the lab was funded by the German Research Foundation DFG.
The lab invites young and experienced scholars and artists to do research on the sonic sensory aspects of individual lives and in heterogenuous societies, cultures and historical eras. The lab operates in mobile, experiential and field-based research environments. The basic research strategies of the lab are field research, critical analysis & sonic artifacts.
The main research studio of the lab is currently located at the Institut für Kulturwissenschaft at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The main cooperation partners of the lab are right now the Archiv für Semiotik at the Universität der Künste Berlin, the Internationales Design Zentrum Berlin, the Design Research Lab and the Interdisziplinäres Zentrum für Historische Anthropologie at the Freie Universität Berlin.
