The Gate is a 20-minute extended film that chronicles more than 300 years of Berlin's history at the Brandenburg Gate. A particular challenge was to tell the story without language barriers to make it accessible to an international audience. Instead of using spoken narration, we developed an immersive three-dimensional sound composition consisting of original sounds, sound design, and historical soundscapes. The musical elements encompassed three centuries of music history, from baroque to electro.

The film was presented on three LED screens, a spatial sound system with 32 loudspeakers arranged on floor level, around and above the audience, plus six subwoofers.
