We were approached by Loewe to assist with the sound design for the launch of their Spring Summer 2017 Collection at Paris Fashion Week. The sound design created by Karen Gwyer (c/o Don't Be Afraid) was sourced and licensed by Syncsmith to accompany a maritime themed backdrop from Creative Director Jonathan Anderson. The metaphorical and political barrels, courtesy of a five-minute film by the artist Magali Reus, projected as a backdrop and depicted young men retrieving great cobalt oil drums from the sea. The film played on repeat, each barrel retrieved then lost back into the water to be collected once again. A loop amplified by Karen Gwyer's immersive sound design.
