Sounding Wild Experience
Technology is all around us, all the time. Sometimes it's good, some other times bad.
Our generation has grown up with it.
Virtual Reality is something of the present, not of the future anymore.
We're curious about technology, its novelty attracts our attention.
Why not use it to show nature's beautiful stories, hoping to make the audience want to connect with it by themselves?
We are taking with us the most cutting-edge technologies in audio and video playback, to create the Sounding Wild Experience wherever we go!
This is how the Sounding Wild Experience is seen inside the headset.
We have developed a unique, bespoke application for Virtual Reality headsets which allows us to create virtual photographic galleries in a few hours.
This application can be installed in as many VR headsets as we want, we don't have limits.
Those galleries are linked via WiFi to our custom 10.2 loudspeaker system sponsored by KEF, of which 6 speakers are used at ear level, 4 at the top, and two subwoofers. This created a 'sonic bubble', surrounding the audience as not even the best cinema does!
Each picture and video has its own audio played back through the loudspeaker system, to make the audience fully present in that moment, one-to-one with nature.
We don't want to replace nature, we are bringing people closer to it to then explore it on their own!
