Jungle in the French riviera
Condiment Junkie have just returned from creating 3 immersive sound installations for a party in the Gardens of Mas des Meuriers, St. Tropez.
Part of the garden was turned into a jungle, with reactive elements that were triggered by people’s movements, creating the impression of hidden animals sensing them. The sound was delivered through 10 speaker surround sound to create a seamless atmosphere.
Another area was turned into a beach with real sand and a bar, and featured a reactive seaside soundscape. Nearby the beach in a small cabana, a 5.1 soundscape made you feel like you were on a small yacht anchored in a quiet cove.
Admirable Crichton designed and organised the event, which was one of the most amazing things we’ve ever witnessed. It was a sheer pleasure to work with them and we look forward to the next one. Every one of the guests mentioned the sound and its effect was amazing, which we are really proud of.
We made some binaural recordings of the installations in situ, and of the whole party in full swing. Below is a short walk-through of the jungle. Listen through headphones to get the binaural effect.
