Fingals Cave: The Virtually Melodic Cave

Production - Kate Bissell for Between the Ears

Role - Composer.

I was commissioned to write a composition inspired by Fingal's Cave in The Hebrides. I used impulse responses from the cave itself to accurately re-create it's acoustic properties, and wrote a score that tried to convey it's awesome and cold beauty. 

The piece was played in full at the end of an immersive documentary about the cave (which I also scored and sound design-ed), and additionally received an ambisonics up-mix for a Virtual Reality experience of the cave.

The documentary can be heard on iPlayer in full by clicking on the logo below. And you can hear the composition on it's own on the Soundcloud player above.
