Integrating Sound and Music: Kuro

Kuro is the spell-binding new film by Joji Koyama and Tujiko Noriko, which premiered at Slamdance this year.

We really enjoyed working on the sound design and the music cues in collaboration with the Directors, helping to shape a narrative experience for the sound that stands apart from, but compliments the film itself.

“..there are a couple of titles with a lot of buzz… but it’s hard to imagine that either of those would be as daring or inventive as Joji Koyama and Tujiko Noriko’s Kuro.” – Josh Cabrita, Sundance Review for MUBI.

“a new angle of filmic storytelling.” – Drea Clark, Moviemaker

“..a singular and impressively accomplished work of art.” – Christopher Bourne, Screen Anarchy

Hyperloop One is the realisation of Elon Musk’s groundbreaking pneumatic tube transportation technology, allowing passengers to travel faster than the speed of sound.

We were comissioned to write some suitably futuristic music & SFX for Squint/Opera’s film that visualises BIG Architects‘ designs. Listen out for some Buchla-esque complex oscilator modulations juxtaposed with a humerous aside of ‘muzak’ that no futuristic vision should be without.

Shot by Martin Hampton over several months during the development of the commission, the film gives us a behind the scenes look at Cruzvillegas’ artistic process, whilst the protraits of the finished work on the eve of the opening allow for some detailed musical moments that play on the anticipation and hope encapsulated by the piece.
