Soundscape for Background Music Figtree Hill
Figtree Hill Sales Office Location
The key to clients visualising living in a new community is creating an environment that appeals to all senses. The Figtree Hill sales office is such an environment. The challenge is that the sales office is located in a shopping centre far from the project site and it is therefore necessary to simulate life in their new community.
Soundscape with nature sounds
The simulation is achieved through VR, while the fit-out includes many plants. In addition to providing VR experiences and interactive tools, there is a soundscape for background music.
Nature sounds from Dharawal National park were recorded over a 24 hour period. The sounds include the calls of frogs, birds, cicadas and running water.
The recordings were time-stamped with additional fauna calls added in. Unpleasant sounds such as flies on the microphone, were removed.
The sound files were then programmed to play at different day-parts. The sales office has many real plants so the soundscape truly compliments it. It therefore provides a transcendental experience for customers. It’s part of an immersive atmosphere and is complemented by the evocative imagery that includes project videos.
