The Project Space  

Harald Bode (1909-1987) was a German engineer and pioneering designer of electronic musical instruments and audio tools. The tools that he created altered the sounds that we hear every day. Through leading innovations that modulate the electronic processing of sound, he created sounds that never existed previously. We are better able to understand the auditory environment that surrounds us by this rare look at his development methods and the equipment he used and by hearing the sounds he generated.
