Chatham Dockyard

Hearts Of Oak Exhibition

  • The Gun Deck In Battle

    Sound design sequence as a character recounts his experiences of war at sea.
  • Chatham Street Atmos

    Atmospheric audio to set the scene for Chatham Street in 1806.
  • Audio Cleanup Example

    Audio cleanup of 1915 recording of naval song 'Heart Of Oak' [before and after].

An immersive digital theatre installation for the new ‘Hearts Of Oak’ gallery at Chatham Historic Dockyard.

The exhibition is a 30-minute historical reconstruction set in 1806, which retells the story of the construction of wooden-hulled sail-powered warships at the dockyard.

We created the atmospheric audio for 15 individual spaces, which the the gallery visitors are guided through by the story’s characters. The sound design we produced enhances the visual effects to help set the scene in the various areas of the busy dockyard and the surrounding streets.

We also provided creative treatments for two battle sequences, in which British naval tactics are explained, and a character vividly recounts the horrors of war at sea.
