Sound is one of the strongest aspects in visual composition, and can be the key to creating an emotional and unique composition. Much of the sound we experience in our lifetimes can bring us back that time period if we were to ever hear it again. URBAN highlights the way that sound is able to recreate memories and an environment within ourselves.

For this project, I chose to focus on the sounds of Tokyo. Being Japanese American and growing up in the US, I have spent much of my life greatly admiring the lifestyle of the urban cityscapes of Japan. The few times I have been there, I was mesmerized by the cohesiveness of tradition and technology, and the harmony between people that is born amidst the dense streets. The sounds featured in the piece were recorded within the Tokyo district during one of my many visits to Japan.

This project was created using Autodesk Maya and Adobe After Effects.
