THE SOUNDS OF SILENCE - READING & LEEDS FESTIVAL

Silent Disco King is planet earth’s largest headphone event company – they’ve delivered the world’s largest silent discos and when they wanted to take their experience to the next level they came to ON THE SLY.

The brief:

To create an even more premium audio experience for attendees of silent disco events by producing a selection of ‘test transmission’ audio creations that would play in headsets in the time leading up to Silent Disco King going live. Also the production of a 10 minute countdown sequence, mixed for each festival and event in the calendar, to create and build the hype to SDK kicking off the show each night.

Test Transmissions – Our solution:

Diving into the ON THE SLY music  composition catalogue, we built a selection of musical sequences from the wild to the wonderful. A fun, entertaining and challenging listen of music tracks, test tones, engineer feeds, 360-3D audio mixing, nature sounds, voices, out takes – think of it like Grand Theft Auto style drop-ins peppered across a selection of different music moments.

Countdown – Our solution:

Programmed, crafted and executed as a 10 minute musical countdown, we mixed ON THE SLY’s best electronic tracks with voiceover pieces, delays, filters, samples and sound design to take the listener closer and closer to the Silent Disco King kick off. A musical journey taking listeners step by step towards the crescendo of the experience – the first track from a fully prepared and hyped audience, unleashed on the festival.
