The Nelson Mandela Capture Site Museum
The sound design at the Nelson Mandela Capture Site Museum is an integral part of the visitor experience. By using a combination of natural sounds, music, and archival recordings, we created an immersive and emotionally resonant journey through the life and legacy of one of the world’s most inspiring figures.
We created an immersive 12 screen wrap around sound design for this iconic museum using designed sound, archival audio and location recordings.
The projected films surrounding the object table create a sense of detachment and separation from the entire story, allowing the visitors to experience multiple viewpoints and contrasting introspections while inside the gallery. Sound plays a huge role in creating the dynamic flow and tension with the narrative.
Our audio system design allows for precise localisation of sounds and provides scale and weight to the room.

Within the museum’s narrative, the 1962 Austin Westminster assumes a central role, acting as a catalyst for introspection and reflection. Its presence serves as a reminder of the challenges faced and the courage displayed by those who fought against apartheid. The replica becomes more than a mere artifact; it becomes a portal to the past, inviting visitors to engage with the narrative and contemplate the profound impact of Mandela’s struggle and the ongoing pursuit of justice and equality.
