The Sound of Protest – People Power: Fighting for Peace

We 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
★★★★ – “there’s an infinite number of very real stories to be told – and that’s where the IWM really get things right… the human dimension to this exhibition is what lends it such power”. – Time Out
★★★★ ‘A moving, nuanced look at the anti-war movement across the decades’ – Telegraph

Integrating Sound and Music: Kuro

Kuro is the spell-binding new film by Joji Koyama and Tujiko Noriko, which premiered at Slamdance this year.

We really enjoyed working on the sound design and the music cues in collaboration with the Directors, helping to shape a narrative experience for the sound that stands apart from, but compliments the film itself.

“..there are a couple of titles with a lot of buzz… but it’s hard to imagine that either of those would be as daring or inventive as Joji Koyama and Tujiko Noriko’s Kuro.” – Josh Cabrita, Sundance Review for MUBI.

“a new angle of filmic storytelling.” – Drea Clark, Moviemaker

“..a singular and impressively accomplished work of art.” – Christopher Bourne, Screen Anarchy
