Cities and Memory has partnered with Exodus Adventure Travels to mark their 50th anniversary with a very special project exploring the world of adventure through sound. 

The Sound of Adventure is a global exploration in sound of the sense of adventure you feel when experiencing a place for the first time. 

We commissioned 12 field recordists to capture the soundscapes of a dozen travel destinations all over the world. Those recordists headed out to record incredible soundscapes, which were offered up to 12 specially-selected artists to develop compositions that expressed what travel and adventure meant to them – with stunning results.

Explore this world of sound on the map below or in the playlist and accompanying album.

You can also listen to the sounds from the project in the playlist below.

The sounds are arranged in pairs – first the field recording, and then the composition built from that soundscape.

Sound of Adventure: the album

.The project can also be downloaded in full as a pay-what-you-like album so you can enjoy the sounds of adventure wherever you go.

At Exodus, we love adventure travel and always have. There’s something about the feeling of visiting a new country, culture or environment – whether that’s a mountain range, desert or jungle – that just can’t be beaten. We first took a group of travellers to the Himalaya 45 years ago, and have since expanded to offer more than 500 itineraries across more than 90 countries.
