MARVEL

UNIVERSE OF
SUPER HEROES

Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes features more than 300 artifacts, including some of Marvel’s most iconic and sought-after pages, costumes, and props. Spectacular artifacts to thrill both avid collectors, and casual fans—while immersive set pieces, soundscapes, and interactive elements bring the comic book world to life!

 

The exhibition debuts during Marvel’s 80th anniversary year, and chronicles the story of Marvel and its influence on visual culture, while also uncovering the narratives of individual characters such as Captain America, Spider-Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Doctor Strange.

ACOUSTIC SCENOGRAPHY

MARVEL UNIVERS OF SUPER HEROES
ROUGH GUIDE TO THE
SONIC UNIVERSE

[X ] memorable hookline (“leitmotif”) for universal use (exhibition soundtrack / web / media formats)

 

[ X] emotional, touching, exciting, secretive: the musical translation of the heroes journey

 

[X ] the main can be transformed, scaled, morphed into various musical shapes to avoid an "acoustic overkill” (as discussed;)


[X] the good vs. The evil: you feel the presence of the dark forces to make our hero-theme shine


[X] the main theme stems will be used to create the necessary elements for all the media derivates, films and web formats

MAIN THEME
SOUNDTRACK VS. AMBIENT TRACK

The soundtrack and the ambient track run fully synced and support each other. The soundtrack version is the actual piece of music which is presented in the musical sweet spots (e.g. cinema / outro zone).


The ambient version is a “blurred”, highly reduced version of the soundtrack. It’s main purpose is the use as an atmospheric emotional backdrop in the exhibtion space. Both tracks run simultaneously. The visitor will experience the change of complexity by walking through the different zones.


The so called “bleeding” in the zone of acoustic transition is smoothed because the soundtrack and the ambient track share the same key and same musical basis and support each other.

 

MAIN THEME
WAVES OF INTENSITY

The main theme will be audible as a soundtrack and an ambient track version troughout the exhibition.

The narrative density of the music can float free almost wavelike in intervals.

 

The idea is to present the theme with a strong emotional impact – and then again give the audience some acoustic space and time to develop their own thoughts, emotions and perspectives on what’s being displayed.

The music video for the track “Broken Motor” by the Berlin based project “SONICONOCLASM” was shot on two separate nights on the streets of Berlin.


This experimental hip hop track is a statement against conformity and the loss of individuality and diversity. The video consists of more than 25 different people performing the song spontaneously, shot in an extreme close up: a colorful cross section of Berlin nightlife, far beyond hype and hipsters.

This suspenseful individuality of the people is almost completely dissolved in the chorus. Following the so-called “Eigenface”-process of facial recognition, all the portraits are visually interpolated, creating an androgynous, hybrid Big-Data-face.
