COP28 Music & Sound Design

COP28 UAE took place during November-December 2023, with leaders from around the globe descended on Dubai for ‘Reaching The Last Mile Forum 2023’.


In collaboration with the team at Identity & Identity Middle East, we had the incredible opportunity to create the music and sound design, as well as bringing a 360-degree immersive poetry performance to life through sound. This unique experience was scored, orchestrated, and mixed for an all-encompassing L-Acoustics 96-speaker surround setup.

Paired with stunning visuals from the brilliant minds at NorthHouse, we delivered a soundtrack centred around the urgent need to address neglected tropical diseases.

Two slam poets, representing different peoples – one from Africa and one from the UAE – took to the stage to tell a powerful story through words.

Our challenge was to build a composition which would start with the storm of global challenges and neglected tropical diseases, reflect the hopeful tone of where we are today, and soar towards a positive future.

With the collaboration of global leaders at the summit, an incredible US$777 million was pledged as part of the ‘Reaching The Last Mile Forum 2023’
