We’re thrilled to share our latest project with you! Our client, Deja Vu, gave us the privilege of working on an epic film showcasing the foundation of a kingdom built on the earth in the historic city of Diriyah.

The Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) is remaking Diriyah into what will eventually be the largest cultural and heritage destination in the world as part of the Kingdom’s 2030 Vision.
Diriyah, the ancestral home of the Royal Family of Al Saud and the location of the Kingdom, is the result of a SAR 65 billion cultural and lifestyle development that was motivated by the classic Najdi architecture of At-Turaif.
When it is finished, Diriyah will be the top place in Saudi Arabia to live, work, shop, eat, and celebrate the wonders of the country’s illustrious past and culture.

The Brief

Our brief was to stay true to the traditional and cultural essence of the city while making the music emotional and powerful. To accomplish this, we used live oud instrumentation as the backbone of our original music score. Our expertly crafted sound design adds depth and richness to the music, bringing the film to life in a unique and captivating way.

We’re proud of the result and can’t wait for you to check out the film and experience the power of our original music and sound design. #Diriyah #TheCityOfEarth #OriginalMusic #SoundDesign #FilmScore #AudioBranding

The way the Diriyah Gate Development Authority is using cultural and lifestyle development to make the city a top travel destination is impressive.

WithFeeling is passionate about using music and sound design to tell engaging stories that emotionally connect with audiences. We think that music can connect people to one another and to the past, present, and future because it is a universal language.

We’re thrilled to have been a part of this undertaking and to have contributed our skills to the production of the movie showcasing Diriyah as the cornerstone of the earth’s kingdom. Our team of talented composers and sound designers put in a lot of effort to make sure that the music and sound design accurately captured the spirit of the city and gave the audience a moving and impactful experience.

We are happy to continue working on projects that highlight the beauty and diversity of Saudi Arabia’s culture and history. We are proud to have contributed to Diriyah’s transformation in terms of its culture and heritage.
