Musicians from around the world are being invited by the UK to collaborate and contribute to an amazing crowd sourced piece of music that showcases the sounds of humanity.
The project will be led by British audio design studio Polyphonia and the composition will be heard by millions of visitors to the UK Pavilion at the next World Expo in Dubai, a six-month long celebration of humanity’s resilience, creativity, culture and innovation, now opening October 2021.
The soundscape was conceived as part of the design for the UK Pavilion visitor experience by Avantgarde, along with lead designer and artist Es Devlin OBE, who has worked with the likes of Beyoncé, U2 and Adele.
The spokesperson from British Embassy in Dubai stated that from talented musicians and singers, to people tapping out simple rhythms, humming or clicking fingers, musical contributions recorded on microphones or mobile phones, in bedrooms, garages or gardens are welcomed from every corner of the globe from people of all ages and abilities.
They will be woven together into a 7-minute long, multilayered tapestry of sound, composed by Polyphonia, who have recently worked on projects for Cirque du Soleil, The Imperial War Museum and the BBC.
