Hotel Radisson Blu Riverside

Radisson Blu Riverside by Lindholmspiren in Gothenburg harbour opened in 2013 and was listed as one of Sweden's ten most luxurious hotels in 2015. In 2016 Audiotehcture created an interactive sound design for the hotel's elevator lobby. Inspired by an installation in the Hotel Avalon, also by Audiotechture, the management ordered a sensor-controlled system that plays bird sounds when a guest approaches the elevators either from the lobby or stepping out of the elevator going down from the upper floors.

     The bird sounds are both naturalistic – recorded – and hybrids mixed with elements of steel and glass, inspired by the hotel's exterior and location in one of Gothenburg's technology centers.
