Music for the exhibition and beyond
For over 3 years, 40 artists have been working to bring the world of „Westeros“ alive. These unseen places will be shown only at the exhibition „Unseen Westeros“. Additionally to the artworks, will be a soundtrack composed and produced exclusively for this exhibition. Welcome everyone to „Unseen Westeros Music“. Artists number 41 and 42, Julian Laping and Andrej Samolyanov have been creating a world of music and sound, which matches the diverse places of Westeros and beyond. In each of the 9 exhibition rooms, will be a dedicated soundtrack, capturing the atmosphere of the area and characteristics of the cities and places. Even with their eyes shut, the visitor will experience the journey through the World of Westeros and beyond, just by listening to the music and sound. The music was written in tight reference to the artworks and stories to relieve the experience of the exhibition.
