105+dB: The Sounds of Football

Immerse yourself in a virtual Qatar football match using 3D sonic technology.

105+dB is a sonic artwork made unique for Qatar, about identity, place and participation. It is a large-scale sound installation transplanting the awesome wall of noise and energy captured between Al Rayan and Al Arabi football clubs at the Grand Hamad Stadium on 14 September 2018.

Using the sound of football crowds as our medium and inviting participants to re-explore the noise in another landscape, we are transplanting energy out of the stadium, where it is understood and contained, and bringing it into other realms, where it proposes new narratives to be constructed by the listeners as they navigate the soundscape.

105+dB is a public art installation that can be interacted with playfully by thousands of people of all ages, bringing people together, using the mass appeal of football and the canvas of the city to encourage conversations as Qatar continues the journey toward the World Cup in 2022.
