Australia Day is more than just a holiday; it’s both a day of reflection and socialising for many Australians. The celebrations on Sydney Harbour are some of the most exciting in the country.
This year, we were contracted by the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet to create the soundtrack for the Australia Day ‘On the Harbour’ event. The soundtrack that included a choir, voiceovers and special effects was played back from on board the HMAS Canberra through large speaker arrays that were focused towards various vantage points around the harbour. The soundtrack was timed to allow for the inclusion of live elements such as a RAAF F18 fly past and a 21 gun salute.
