About the Work

This story covers a lot of ground in a short time. From a sound point of view it was really important to establish a very real physical world, and then move it around, breaking up the viewer's sense of space to convey the material world merging with the virtual. We focussed on sounds evocative of passing through thresholds, accentuating camera swoops and spins with filter sweeps and the sounds of bicycle gears. To get the right grit and texture of the gravel racing, we recorded cyclists on dirt roads in the mountains. To convey the feel of 2022 East Africa, we combed through days of footage and cut in snippets of peoples’ voices, cars, insects, and roosters. Everything was mixed with an ear for keeping the soundtrack coherent and cinematic, a story of converging worlds and breaking barriers.
