EarthSongs (prototype)

EarthSongs is a joyful celebration of wild soundscapes, utilising spatial computing technology via the Magic Leap headset. The experience aims to engage a diverse global audience with the natural world, whilst encouraging players to consider our ever-increasing disconnection with the wild through beguiling imagery, interactivity and playfulness.

The prototype is Phase 1 of the experience development.

Director Statement

EarthSongs was born from my life-long fascination with wild soundscapes and sounds in nature and my realisation that although we're all intuitively connected to nature through sound, we've forgotten how to listen.

My aim is to create a beguiling and joyful immersive experience that subtly challenges our disconnect with nature and helps us reconnect in a new and intuitive way. The prototype is Phase 1 of that development.
