During a five-week stay in Egypt in April and May 2010, I devoted four days to recording the sounds present inside and outside the Egyptian Museum, Cairo, resulting in the eight hours of material from which this composition has been created. As a cultural institution, the Egyptian Museum in Cairo represents one of the foundations of human history; as a soundscape, it represents an unexpectedly rich sonic experience with its own place in the history of a country now in transition.
We were asked to create the sound design and 'music' for this Black Ocean branding ident.
The futuristic and intricate sounds were all created in house on custom software. Our sound designers created nearly 20 minutes of custom sounds and textures - interactively drawing sounds - passes, swooshes and many other sonics, to the moving images.
