"From sacred texts written on tree bark, palm leaves and gold plates to exquisite silk scrolls of major sutras, follow the life of the Buddha and his previous incarnations. Find out how Buddhism was pivotal in developing writing and printing techniques, transmitting ideas and stories across Asia."

Using original field recordings and exclusive sonic material from the British Library Sound Archive's World & Traditional Music collection, Mat Eric Hart has created a natural, evocative sound world for visitors to this exhibition to engage with in mind, body and spirit.
