We want you to experience a whole new dimension to Chester Zoo, one we’re creating in collaboration with talented artists, landscape designers, scientists and entertainers.  We’re transforming some of our favourite spaces around the zoo into unique worlds.

Bringing the Exhibition to Life: A Collaborative Soundscape

In collaboration with Mighty Giant, this project features audio designed to transport visitors directly into the heart of the exhibition. The focus was on creating a realistic and engaging experience, faithfully replicating the animal and environmental sounds one might expect to encounter.

Balancing Realism and Fun:

  • Authentic Soundscapes: Crafted sound design recreates the natural sounds of the animal inhabitants and their environment, ensuring a sense of realism and immersion.
  • Playful Touches: While remaining authentic, the sound design avoids being overly frightening, particularly for younger visitors. This balance is achieved through careful sound selection and design techniques, as well as the emotional tone of the music.
  • Energetic Bespoke Music: The music component of the soundscape features a fast-paced and energetic composition incorporating exotic instruments like the Balinese Kettle Gong. Interestingly, some guitar-like sounds are actually a distorted Dulcimer.

Delivering the Experience:

  • Multi-Platform Experience: The soundscape was designed for delivery across various platforms, including a 20-second version for online and broadcast ads, and a 30-second version specifically for radio commercials.
