Visitors embark on a journey to the battle field, experiencing the triumphs and tragedies through the eyes and words of New Zealanders who served at Gallipoli. The haunting stories of seven men and one woman are relived through an ethereal landscape. This is explained through a range of interpretive media including audio, digital projections, graphics, collection items, memoirs, and extracts from personal diaries.
Performed by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the musical score, written by award winning New Zealand composer and sound designer Tane Upjohn-Beatson, sets a tone of sadness and discomfort. Featuring over 100 speakers throughout the exhibition, the epic soundscape merges with voices, gunfire, and explosions.
