Collaboration with music broadcasting company Boiler Room. In addition to the live music event we also held a competition, where we challenged the home producers to make a song that will push their speakers to the limits.

The artist with most streamed song in Soundcloud was rewarded with place to play in the Genelec x Boiler Room party.

To market the event a ”Science of Sound” -video series (5 episodes) was produced to highlight the quality needs from the speakers to create such a complex sound.
