Our Origins of Outdoor Audio series will travel through different decades and cultures to celebrate one iconic exterior Speaker System at a time. As a cultural artefact in itself, an Outdoor Audio System can reveal compelling insights into the zeitgeist of certain eras.

This series will delve into the relationship between different Speaker Systems, how these different devices have influenced musical genres and the varying ways that music can be shared and enjoyed.

A discussion of these patterns can help us to better understand the ways in which listeners engage with audio in the present day.
