Food for Thought - National Maritime Museum


🎧 Interesting new work for the Food for Thought Exhibit at The National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam 🎧

Our food and shipping are inseparable. Food is transported all over the planet; we receive avocados and mangoes in our supermarkets throughout the year. Yet, even our regional products, such as shrimp or cod from the North Sea, are also transported to the other side of the world to be filleted by cheap labor. What impact does all this actually have? Photographer and filmmaker Kadir Van Lohuizen delves deep into these issues while Big Orange - The Audio Agency was bringing the narrative to life through audio.

Rijksmuseum X ADE X Big Orange


Recording instruments at the Rijksmuseum at night with 3D mics, underwater mics, and dozens of condenser mics? And then Dj Upsammy and Tom Trago turning it into an awesome track? And all of this is going to be performed live tonight at the ADE opening in the Rijksmuseum tunnel???

This all sounds like such a cool project, and we're so stoked to have been a part of it. Big shoutout to Dj Upsammy, Valentina Magaletti, and Tom Trago for this amazing production, and a huge thanks to Frederique Van Reij and the Rijksmuseum. As always, it was an epic collaboration and an incredible experience.

Have a blast tonight at Breathe, Walk, Die in the Rijksmuseum tunnel!

Boijmans Van Beuningen in the Rijksmuseum


🔥 Exciting news! The Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen exhibition and audio tour ft. Raven van Dorst is now open at the Rijksmuseum!

For the audiotour production, we had the privilege of getting together with Raven and conservator Ludo van Halem, who graciously guided us through the exhibition. Their personal insights and expertise added a completely new dimension to the experience, providing a unique perspective on the works of art.

Luckily, we also brought our trusty companion, Henk, the spatialaudio microphone! Henk, alongside some extra microphones, captured every subtle detail and created an immersive experience, allowing you to feel as if you were right there, exploring the exhibition alongside Raven and Ludo.

From Yayoi Kusama to Pablo Picasso: a selection of the remarkable works from the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen collection can be found from Sept 29, 2023, until Jan 14 2024 at the Rijksmuseum.

Don’t miss out!

Thanks to Frederique Van Reij, great work!

Peelrandbruek Podcast Series


Peelrandbreuk! Peeeeeeelrandbreuk! How dare you call me this way, you shrimpy skimpy human beings! These are the first words of the new podcast fairy tale about the massive fracture zone that runs through the Peel. The origin story of the fracture comes to life with this story, written by Gouden Griffel winner Yorick Goldewijk narrated by Ron Boszhard and it is aimed at families with children. A project of Bestemming Noordoost-Brabant to add to education on this natural miracle.

Starring Maarten van den Broek, Rein De Laat MBA, Jos van der Wijst

Pim and Pom in the Rijksmuseum!


🐱🎧✨ We couldn't keep this from you :-)

Introducing Pim and Pom, an audio tour at the Rijksmuseum for families with children aged 3-6. Based on the popular cats by Fiep Westendorp, this adventurous duo comes to life as talking, cuddly animals (called Tellmies, by Go Wonder). Georgina Verbaan brilliantly voices both Pim and Pom.

Pim and Pom desperately need the help of children! A mouse has escaped from a painting, causing quite a bit of chaos: nibbling on the fruit in the paintings and playing tricks with the items in the dollhouses.

Bluetooth beacons in the museum trigger the cats' responses and guide the kids to locations in the museum where interaction or dialogue takes place. The result is a unique #audiotour full of interaction and humor. The children absolutely love it!

Vermeer Exhibition, Podcasts and Online Experience


The most extensive Johannes Vermeer exhibition to date brings together 28 of the 37 recognized paintings by the enigmatic 17th-century Dutch master. The Rijksmuseum exhibition is a masterpiece in its own right and Big Orange - The Audio Agency was involved in several projects:

Audio tour for Jewish Museum Frankfurt


Frankfurt. The birthplace of Anne Frank, city of skyscrapers, city of banks, seat of the stock exchange and of the European Central Bank.

But Frankfurt would not be the city it is today without the influence of Jewish families like the Rothschilds, or the Frank family, whose tragic fate touched millions through Anne's diary.

We produced an audio tour for the Jüdisches Museum Frankfurt. A special mission for us, especially because of the story of the Frank family, whose history can still be felt every day here in Amsterdam. And on their way to the studio, our employees regularly see the impressive graffiti of Anne Frank with the inscription "Let me be myself" on the NDSM site. The history of the Frank family is part of the DNA of the city of Frankfurt and also of the DNA of the city of Amsterdam.

We are proud that we can help ensure that these stories are told and never forgotten.

Big Orange creates audio tour for Amsterdam Light Festival


During Amsterdam Light Festival Edition 11: Imagine Beyond, which kicks off on 1 December, the public will be guided past 20 different light artworks in the tour boats. Through audio storytelling, the audience is transported to the stories behind the works of art. Gijs Scholten van Aschat plays an unpublished poet who takes you on a 'pleasantly comical and informative way' during the 75-minute cruise.

Scheepvaartmuseum - Audio Tour Mens Op Zee


What role does the Sea play in your life?

In the new photo exhibition “Mens op Zee” Het Scheepvaartmuseum, together with the Dutch National Portrait Gallery, presents various stories of people who went to the sea with different motivations. Big Orange - The Audio Agency produced an audio tour in which Wijnand Stomp, a theatre maker and storyteller, takes you as a presenter.

To better understand the stories behind these photos, we have included interviews with the photographers, but sometimes also with the people who can be seen in the photos, or their relatives.

Visit the new exhibition in the Maritime Museum and hear the story of the people who fled Vietnam at night on a wooden boat. Or of the photographer who secretly took pictures of the half-sunken cruise ship Costa Concordia. Or the story of one of the first women who went to sea with the Dutch Navy...

New Podcast Series: Raymann's Favorites


Looking for art podcasts? Big Orange produced the audio and music for the Rijksmuseum: Raymann's Favorites. Surinamese-Dutch comedian Jörgen Raymann has immersed our studios in Amsterdam for 6 episodes in exciting and partly polarizing subjects. For example: the role of the Netherlands in colonial times, looted art and our traditions such as the Sint-Nicolaas feast. What role does art actually play in all of this and what can we learn from it?

🎧3D Audio Experience for Teylers Museum!🎧


The impressive Oval Hall of Teylers is the heart of the museum and is known as the place where exciting experiments have always been performed for the public. Famous were the experiments that Martinus van Marum (1750 - 1837) carried out with the so-called "electrostatic machine", a machine with which electricity could be made visible, which must have been a magical experience for visitors at a time when electricity was new. The 3D Audio Experience that Big Orange - The Audio Agency developed takes you back to that time at the end of the 18th century, and lets you hear what it must have been like back then...

Museum Flugt opening!


Last week I've had the privilege to be present at the opening of FLUGT - Refugee Museum of Denmark by the Danish Queen Margrethe. The new museum is located on the site of the largest refugee camp in Denmark, in the woods outside Oksbøl. The impressive building was designed by BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group and consists of a curved modern building made of wood, glass and steel. The museum exhibition is designed by Tinker imagineers. The Big Orange team has been working on this project for the last 1,5 years, which, in terms of audio production is immense. We've created over 700 minutes of (3D) audio and music and worked with over 60 actors from Denmark, Germany and Great Britain to make the most immersive audio experience possible. It's been a creative, technical and productional challenge, but it was an awesome ride :-)

Thanks to all people we've met, we've created stuff with and that helped us throughout this meaningful project FLUGT!



What does it mean to be a refugee and what it is like to stand on the other side as the recipient country?

We are very excited to be involved in this meaningful project, 'FLUGT'.

FLUGT is the Refugee Museum of Denmark. The completely new museum will be built in the remnants of Denmark's largest refugee camp, in the woods outside Oksbøl, where 35.000 German refugees formed Denmark's fifth-largest city for five years following World War II.

Tinker imagineers has asked Big Orange to help produce an immersive 9D Audio Experience in the forest, as well as develop all audio content inside the museum. The museum will be opening in the summer of 2022! Lad os gå!

Blind Spot Project


Dutch museum fills ‘Blind Spot’ with exhibit for visually impaired.

Utrecht Central Museum launched a very special project by Jasper Udink ten Cate and Jeroen Prins this month to make artworks more accessible and enjoyable for the visually impaired.

BBC news mentioned the project! Check here.

The exhibit recreates existing paintings but with extra dimensions combined different senses, such as sound and smell – including the aroma of ripe cheese. And for once, people are allowed to touch.

We are thrilled to have filled the auditory sense in this experience with music, sound design and 3D narrative audio.

Mengelberg's List


On the 4th of May, the EO will broadcast the documentary "Mengelberg's List". A documentary about the world-famous conductor of the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Willem Mengelberg. Because he had Nazi sympathies, he was severely punished after World War II and dismissed as a collaborator and traitor. However, it now appears that he was also actively involved in the rescue of dozens of Jews. The documentary is about whether Mengelberg should be remembered for the lives he saved, or whether the label 'war criminal' suits him better.

The documentary is full of music composed by Big Orange and produced by MOONDOCS, directed by Jaap Van Eyck. Don't forget! Tuesday 4 May, 10:45 PM, NPO2.

Rijksmuseum - Slavery Exhibition


“An exhibition about slavery. Not as an abstract concept, but in the form of personal and true stories. Stories from Brazil, Suriname and the Caribbean, as well as from South Africa and Asia ”. This is how the Rijksmuseum itself describes the exhibition that we have contributed to in recent months. A sensitive subject. A period of 250 years that is an inseparable part of our history. An important topic. A subject that will now have its own exhibition, on which we have contributed in recent months. For us a fantastic challenge to provide this exhibition with two audio tours. Ten impressive stories about ten people from this period. Narrated by, among others, Joy Delima, Remy Bonjasky and Glenn Helberg, who each have a bond with one of the ten people from their own background. Children can listen to a separate tour in which narrator Yosina Rumajauw goes back in time with the listener. The exhibition “Slavery - ten true stories” opens in the spring of 2021, in the Rijksmuseum.

3D audio explained


We get a lot of questions about 3D audio (or 9D, which is a different name for the same thing 😀).

Sounds of Amsterdam


Every year, around 5 million tourists visit the beautiful city of Amsterdam. This year has seen quite a drop in these numbers, and we're sure we don't have to tell you why.

Virtual Amsterdam Marathon


Every year, TCS Amsterdam Marathon fills the streets of Amsterdam with runners from all over the world. This year the virtual edition fills your headphones with a 3D audio experience. During the experience, DJ MACKS (Max Krul) plays you the hottest tracks, taking you on an energetic run enriched with a custom made, Amsterdam themed audio experience. We recorded typical sounds in 3D, like bicycles, trams and barrel organs to give runners a realistic experience of running a marathon in this beautiful city. And of course it wouldn't be a marathon without people cheering you on from the sideline. Listen here and experience it for yourself. (Don't forget to put on headphones for the full 3D effect.)

On the road with henk


Another day on the road with our beloved friend Henk, our 3D audio microphone. He didn't want to wear a mask, but luckily all of us did. Can you guess what we have been recording? There's a main theme going on here. The past weeks we've been working on this special project.

Not particularly easy if you don't know what your own crown looks like 😉 Listen to the episode on your favorite podcast app. Or here at the Rijks website.

Celebrating 20 years of sound!


20 years ago, as three freshly graduated students, we founded Big Orange. Soon after we opened one of the first professional recording and production studios in the centre of Utrecht. Forward 20 years, 108 awards (#truestory), 1254 bottles of champagne and 5 kids, we are still going strong. Thanks to a fantastic team, great clients, and awesome friends and family. Our team members suffer from a weird kind of fatigue occasionally (see 4 pictures at the bottom), but we still carry them through making great music, producing the most bizarre sound design and recording the best actors in the world. Due to Corona, we can't organise a kick-ass party to celebrate this year, but we definitely will next year! @everybody: thanks for the great ride so far, and let's keep creating beautiful things together in the next 20 years!
