20 Years of Ears.
Due to Covid-19, field recording services may currently be affected, depending on the recording environment. All other services are unaffected.
We're an award-winning sound design & music composition house based in Manchester, UK.
We've over 20 years experience making sound design and music for commercials, installations, digital content, film, radio, audio branding and audio assets.
A nose-to-tail audio service; we also provide a post-production service for your finished project which complies with all the new broadcast loudness standards.
Bent Ear was founded in 1997 by Simeon Davies & Sean Mortimer.
A few examples of how we work:
We used St.Paul's Cathedral as a huge echo-chamber for the StPaul's Cathedral "Oculus" Exhibition.
We tormented the accelerator and engine on Lewis Hamilton's F1 car at McLaren HQ to create melodies for McLaren in partnership with S.A.P.
We used an old onion as a maraca for Subway's Eat Fresh Campaign.
And like you, we enjoy fucking about with sound.
If you'd like to chat about a project and find out more about what we do, call Sean on 07966 796041 or Simeon on 07941 110754 or email
Charging is on a per-project basis, dependent on time, budget and requirements.
