5,000 Miles by ITHACA

2020 forced us to stay at home, confined to our own little corner of the world.

Commissioned and produced by Lighthouse to take place during Brighton Festival, 5,000 miles is an immersive 360-degree audio experience that transports you to another place through the evocative sounds of another country and culture.

Listen as your world changes around you through a soundscape created using spatial audio technology and ambisonic 3D recording.

ITHACA is a Brighton-based company of light artists, sound designers, composers, editors and experimenters that combines art, music and technology to create innovative experiences with sound and light.

5,000 miles is part of Digital Democracies, a national partnership project exploring technology-enabled art in public spaces to foster a new generation of radically inclusive public cultural experiences. Digital Democracies is led by Threshold Studios and brings together Frequency Festival of Digital Culture, Freedom Festival and Brighton Digital Festival (Lighthouse).


5,000 miles is commissioned by Threshold Studios, Freedom Festival Arts Trust and Brighton Digital Festival (Lighthouse). It is supported by funding bodies Arts Council England and Re-Imagine Europe. Lighthouse is the UK partner for Re-Imagine Europe, which is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
