Skagen’s historic Grey Lighthouse has been transformed into an international research centre and exhibition about bird migration by ART+COM Studios. We created the sound scenography that guides the visitors on their exploration of scientific insights, real-time observation data and practical birder knowledge.
Ranging from realism to impressionism, our sound scenography unifies the multidimensional approach of the exhibition with atmospheric, symphonic themes, multichannel field recordings and sound design for interactive applications. In addition to the main exhibition, we developed and produced a Soundscape Composition on the acoustic environment and community of Skagen that can be heard in the entrance hall of the lighthouse tower.
Located at the northern tip of Denmark, Skagen is infamous for its rough sea and wind. We investigated the soundscape of Skagen’s acoustic community, performed numerous field recordings and interviewed locals. The biggest adventure of our trip was an experimental bird’s eye audio recording from a helium balloon.
