As part of the The Royal Observatory’s five year extensive redevelopment, Illustrious provided a series of 3D immersive soundscapes and composed a new soundtrack for the museums Weller Astronomy Galleries and the Peter Harrison Planetarium.

Working in conjunction with design group Thomas Matthews who led the £16 million project, Illustrious created seven interlocking 3D soundscapes for the galleries as well as composing a soundtrack in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound for the planetarium’s signature show.

Managed by Greenwich's National Maritime Museum, The Royal Observatory was originally designed in 1675 by Sir Christopher Wren and is of huge historic and cultural significance to Britain. 

In partnership with The Royal Observatory Greenwich and the National Maritime Museum.
