Wow! 🎬 Before the Sonophilia Summer Retreat even really started we had already a great gathering at the Salzburger Kunstverein with inspiring Art before new and old Sonophilians met for dinner! Thank you for this wonderful first day in Salzburg, Seda Röder! ❤️💙💜In the next two days we will explore creative synergies between arts, sciences, tech and business in the secluded setting of the Austrian Alps. Stay tuned... ✌️🤓👍
