Sonos and The North Face have teamed up for a new way to ‘Never Stop Exploring’ from home.
Launched today, The North Face and Sonos partner to launch the Soundscapes series. This audio adventure lets you experience a variety of outdoor exploits and TNF expeditions through sound.
What does climbing with Alex Honnold sound like? What kind of rush does skiing Lhotse bring? With this series, you’ll get to listen in and find out.
“We’ve spent over 50 years enabling some of the world’s greatest athletes to not only achieve their goals, but to inspire the next generation of explorers,” said Steve Lesnard, Global VP of marketing and product at The North Face.
“What our partnership with Sonos unlocks is a completely new avenue for storytelling.”
In total, The North Face and Sonos launched nine field recordings, from expeditions on the peaks of Peru to the icy plains of Antarctica to the waterfall landscapes of Japan, and more. Each original recording is then mixed, sequenced, and combined with an original score.
The result? The ultimate audial adventure, with real-life sound effects and guided by the voices of some of the coolest adventurers around.
Or, as Alex Honnold calls it, “a soundtrack to their experience.” If you are into podcasts or radio, definitely give the series a try.
