5,000 miles is an immersive 360-degree audio experience that transports you to another place through the evocative sounds of another country and culture.

Listen as your world changes around you through a soundscape created using spatial audio technology and ambisonic 3D recording.

The installation is a ten minute audio experience that takes in the sounds of six different locations in Taiwan and Thailand, as local people describe their feelings about the places that you are listening to.

The locations featured in 5,000 Miles are:

Taiwan - Nanatou Mountains (The sounds of the mountainous jungle terrain of Nanatou at dawn)

Taiwan - Lungshan Temple (The early morning sounds of Lungshan Temple at 6AM)

Taiwan - Wulai Old Street, Taipei (The sounds of everyday life on Wulai Old Street, Taipei)

Thailand - Doi Suthep Temple (The sounds of nature surrounding the site of Doi Suthep Temple in Thailand)

Thailand - Announcement over small town tannoy system

Thailand - Fields surrounding Chiang Mai

Thailand recordist: Alex Boyesen
