Arabian Journeys - 2018

King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture, Saudi Arabia

Arabian Journeys is a natural history museum at the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture. Over 8 areas, visitors are taken on a journey through saudi arabias rich natural environments, from the pre-historic formation of the arabian peninsula and its earliest flora and fauna, through the deserts, mountains and coastal regions with their respective wildlife, to an interactive outlook into the future.

We created sound and music for interactive stations, video guides, and ambient sound throughout the entire exhibition. Each area's 360° projections are accompanied by multi-channel soundscapes that sonically represent the different biotopes  through a delicate mixture of natural and musical elements. Areas also include interactive stations that add local sonic elements to the soundscapes, overall creating an immersive sonic environment that brings the impressive visual landscape to life.
