Soundscapes & Sound Installations

Videogames at The V&A

e are thrilled to announce we’re working with acclaimed Pernilla Ohrstedt Studios on the V&A’s first major digital exhibition, Videogames opening in Autumn 2018.

We’ve been appointed as Sound and Acoustic Design consultants, creating a concept for the overall audio experience, advising on all aspects of how sound will be incorporated and integrated into the exhibition as well as composing a bespoke soundscape across the whole exhibition space.

It’s as much the design element as the social element…We are very happy to have them in the same building as Donatellos, Botticellis, Constables and Turners.

– Dr Tristram Hunt, Director V&A

Robots: The Making of an Algorithmic Soundscape

uch of what we think of as ‘musical’ nowadays is the result of the feedback between musicians and instrument makers. The piano is an embodiment of both a mathematical and physical solution to the concept of musical harmony.. The piano’s mechanism also invites us to consider the possibility that something other than human fingers might also play it.

If you want to find out more about Will and Sam’s inspirations and ideas behind the algorithmic soundscape check out their piece on the Science Museum Blog.

‘People Power: Fighting for Peace’ Soundscape

e were commissioned to create an immersive 24 speaker soundscape for the latest Imperial War Museum London exhibition People Power: Fighting For Peace. Each zone of the exhibition is dedicated to a different era of the anti-war movement, spanning from WW1 to the present day, and our brief was to recreate the sounds of protest particular to each period. It was great to return to the IWM after working on their permanent First World War galleries, which opened 2015.

“I can’t wait to work with them again. They really took our gallery to a new level with their high quality work”

Philip Clevberger, Digital Media Developer, IWM London

“they did a brilliant job with the soundscape. It works perfectly within the space and achieves everything we wanted it to in complimenting the exhibition content and enhancing the visitor experience”

Rawiya Jenkins, Exhibitions Manager, IWM London

Making CHORUS with Matthew Herbert

e were commissioned to interpret Matthew Herbert’s creative response to the Wellcome Collection’s This is A Voice brief to investigate the spectrum of the human voice.

Matthew Herbert’s CHORUS is an installation piece in which visitors record their voice, their recording then joins a larger chorus comprised of previous visitors’ recordings. Each day the chorus grows as more visitors contribute to it. Approximately 20,000 people participated in the London leg of the project.
