    Mini- Documentary: Hometown HiFi: The Evolution of Sound System Culture


    Sonos Studio introduces a new exhibition that celebrates how a small island changed listening forever. “Hometown HiFi: Sound System Culture” explores the origin of the Dub movement dating back to the streets of Jamaica in the 60s, where engineers discovered a new way to enjoy music — one that would bring people together to form a musical revolution. This short film documents the history of the global legacy of listening out loud with commentary from French journalist/documentary director Seb Carayol (Hometown Hifi curator), legendary Dub artist, Mad Professor, among others.

    About Sonos Studio:
    Sonos Studio is an acoustically-designed space that celebrates music listening and serves as the best place to experience the Sonos Wireless HiFi System. The studio explores the intersection of music, art and technology through creative collaborations.
