The OISTAT Sound Design Working Groupis an international body of Sound Designers and Sound Artists who primarily work in theatre and the performing arts. Their primary objective is to foster and support international professional relationships and knowledge sharing. They are committed to exploring opportunities to exhibit and promote performance oriented Sound Design & Composition worldwide. Their ongoing work to support this aim includes the organization and implementation of Sound Design projects for the Prague Quadrennial and the World Stage Design expos. Our intention is to share the enormous amounts of audio and written resources held by the working group in order to make these more accessible to interested parties in whatever way we're able. The Sound Working Group was established by the OISTAT Performance Design Commission at its annual meeting in Bregenz, Austria in 2000.
