LSTN: Sound And Purpose
Creativity is evolution in our hands.
A SUPREME LOVE
A SENSORIUM OF SOUND
The outstanding physical characteristic that distinguishes these headphones from the peripheral body of participants is the adoption of wood. LSTN builds alliances with furniture and flooring manufacturers to upcycle their trimmed byproducts. The framework shell of each new pair is expertly handcrafted from reclaimed exotic wood. They provide a suite of elegant options to select from their profile. Materials for every housing are custom tailored from Cherry, Beech, Ebony or Zebra and made available for all product models. They have three tiers to choose from: 'Troubadours', 'Fillmores', and 'Bowreys'. I chose the aviator style Troubadours for their aerodynamic contour and the petite Bowerys because of the versatility of earbuds.
Fusing the element of wood with earpieces makes perfect sense on multiple levels. The effective channeling of tonal resonance is best achieved by going with the grain. High quality headphones deserve to be treated with the same method of manufacturing that articulates the anatomy of other acoustic instruments. The subtle nuances of harmonic vibration that emanate from classical guitars, violins, pianos and drums are efficiently catalyzed through this organic medium.
Sculpting with wood captures a personal mood.
Trees play a singular part in the symphony of our shared planet. LSTN consequentially helps promote the growing awareness of preserving these nobel species. Living trees are not directly harvested for producing their headphones but are rather repurposed from reusable cuts which still possess value. This is an intelligent strategy that moves us toward environmental integrity through diminishing impact on already standing trees and highlighting our awareness about these issues by drawing attention to the possibility that a business practice doesn’t have to take something new to just to make something new.
Same song, second verse. Variations on a theme.
A QUINTESSENTIAL CHORUS
To be aligned with LSTN is like being immersed within the animated amphitheater of a forested landscape. These headphones; they saved my life.
There’s a renaissance happening right now and the revolution will be heard.What are you listening to?
A CODA OF COURAGE
Can you hear it?
VISUALIZE THE LOVE MOVEMENT
An impassioned portrait of a street dancer named Olivier
“Sometimes, I don’t control my body, so I don’t know what to expect,” says dancer Olivier Chapusette, in this intimate short. “This isn’t just dance—it’s everything,” he says, while the therapeutic nature of dancing, he suggests, “helps me to be a better person.”
Sleep Sound - Deaf dancers move to the silence with artist Sofia Mattioli. During the course of one day, she danced with 13 members of the Manchester Deaf Centre with ages ranging from five to 27 years old, who responded to the movement of the artist and the vibrations in the air given off by the song.
