Coined in 2000 by Mil to describe his 'talking' park bench, Sonic Vista is the umbrella term for a range of projects which encompass his interest in the design and implementation of narrative projects. Often using audio technologies and located in the public realm, they are born from an interest in story-telling as part of the urban experience.
Sonic Vista is a focussed combination of 'listening & looking' in a particular context:
It needn't be 'high tech', but might be
It needn't be 'useful', but could be
It needn't be 'true', but may be
It can be uplifting, exciting, informative, reflective or sad
It is about engagement with the environment
(It is also apparently a music production studio in Ibiza, but that's nothing to do with Mil. It looks very nice)
