Started in 1998 by Simeon Davies & Sean Mortimer, Bent Ear make noises, sounds and music for all sorts of things - commercials, films, heritage, digital and audio branding.
We aren't a conveyor-belt operation.
We individually craft and nurture every audio aspect of the project at hand.
We go to great lengths to find the most creative and suitable sound design/music for any given project:
We've used St.Paul's Cathedral as a huge reverberation instrument.
We've tormented the accelerator and engine on Lewis Hamilton's F1 car to make VERY loud melodies
We've used an old onion as a maraca.
If you're thinking of commissioning original music or sound design for a project or brand, give us a call. We are always available to meet up for a chat and a drink or two.
We are based in West Didsbury, Manchester.
