Sound Design, mix and mastering by Bent Ear.

Made to celebrate World Tai Chi Day on April 25th, ‘Wang Hai Jun – Towards the Light’ is an intimate portrait of one of the most accomplished Tai Chi practitioners on the planet Featuring Wang Hai Jun.

The tonal sound design was created using hydrophones (a microphone that detects sound waves underwater)  to record the subtle sound of currents flowing around metal rods of brass and aluminium suspended in water. The rods were repeatedly struck from above the water surface, setting up a bell-like resonance that mirrors the fluid and dynamic nature of his movements.
