Kyoto, Japan

A wild and secluded bamboo forest only known to locals…Visited on a windy day and not a soul was present. The goal was to visually capture the sound of bamboo stems as they move in wavelike fashion from the strong winds. As soothing as the sound was, the mosquitoes were ruthless. After a short shoot I counted well over a hundred bites. It was for sure a worthy experience though – so much so that I visited a few more times before the production came to an end.



Project: Sound of Kyoto

Short Synopsis: “Sound of Kyoto” is a contemporary audiovisual portrait of the Japanese city. The entire Kyoto is the scenery and the stage on which the music is performed and the city’s voice is heard.
