DOT - Wake Up in Northern Mindanao

Jul 21, 2020

Department Of Tourism Philippines - Working closely alongside BBDO Guerrero and Just Add Water Productions, Syn was tasked with creating the music for 16 short-form videos promoting different regions of The Philippines for the Department of Tourism. Using the American classic, 'Beautiful Dreamer' as an interpretation for this project, Syn worked with local composers and producers, as well as Filipino musicians. Recording local instruments, such as 'Gambal', Syn engaged with local culture in a profound way to showcase the magic of The Philippines through music and sound.

Mindanao's landscape reminded us of the grandiosity of nature, so we used Orchestra and Percussion to echo this epic and majestic landscape. Blending these bold sounds with local Filipino instruments created a unique soundscape for the second largest island of The Philippines.
