More on Whisperlodge

Whisperlodge is a joint creation by Melinda Lauw, an artist from Singapore, and Andrew Hoepfner, a rock musician turned immersive theater creator—best known for New York’s surreal Houseworld. “Seven guides lead seven guests through a series of live ASMR sequences–both group and one-on-one experiences–where the audience’s attention operates in a different way [than it normally might],” Hoepfner says. “We focus our attention on smaller details for longer durations than we might otherwise experience.”


This journey takes multiple forms, depending on what a prospective ASMR guest is seeking. Patrons can opt for the signature group setting, in which multiple people are led through various sequences in one locale. In such, they will interact with various sounds, touches, or lights. Or guests can choose to pursue the more personalized Whispers On Demand, a fully customized one-on-one ASMR experience. They also offers soundbaths as well as large scale theater experiences.


What is ASMR?

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is a sensory phenomenon where viewers feel pleasurable tingles from specific visual, auditory and haptic triggers. First observed and discussed on the internet in 2007, the phenomenon is only beginning to be studied academically.


Whisperlodge offers the very first in-person immersive ASMR experience.
