Sound design, music & audio post. Initially the audio was purely sound design, however I felt additional music would lift the film. To discover the correct balance between both I stripped back the composed music to create space, introducing rests and pauses between the scenes. This helped the sound design become the focus when the film slows down time.
In addition to this I produced sound design for 5 minute version of the warrior sat on his horse in the Siberian plains. This is projected, played on loop in the exhibition space. A 5.1 cinema trailer mix was created using my work by a licensed Dolby facility.
2,500 years ago, fearsome warriors roamed the plains of Siberia. Feared, loathed, admired – but over time forgotten… Until now. This major exhibition explores the story of the Scythians – nomadic tribes and masters of mounted warfare, who flourished between 900 and 200 BC. Their encounters with the Greeks, Assyrians and Persians were written into history but for centuries all trace of their culture was lost – buried beneath the ice. Explore their lost world and discover the splendour, the sophistication and the sheer power of the mysterious Scythians.
