design made audible

SIAL Sound Studios is RMIT University’s leading centre for sound based research, teaching and practice.

Teaching and research is focussed on sound design, electroacoustic composition and performance, sonification, acoustic design, acoustic communication, and soundscape studies.

SIAL Sound Studios is located in central Melbourne, with spaces for multichannel sound recording and production, and the 32-channel loudspeaker orchestra.

SIAL Sound Studios acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional owners of the land on which we work and create. We recognise that sovereignty has never been ceded, and pay our respects to Elders, past, present and emerging.
