<< LEWIS HAMILTON >>
A true champion has come to our studio last week:
Voice recording for L'Oreal with Lewis Hamilton, three-time Formula One World Champion.
It was absolutely amazing having him in our studios just a few hours before Shanghai's Grand Prix 2017 (which he actually won to make it even better :-)
The F1 prodigy is also a true gentleman, whose handshake is probably as strong as his grip on the steering wheel!
<< HAPPY NEW YEAR OF THE ROOSTER !!! >>
It is also our 7th anniversary!!! To celebrate, we've redesigned parts of our studio and have an exciting new look!
Looking back at 2016, here are some of the highlights of the past few months at Ker Sound studios:
A Fruitfull Year for Feature Films
In 2016, we've been involved in the production of 3 Chinese films.
A blockbuster comedy "Super Express" (超级快递): music consulting and clearance, as well as ADR.
A suspense thriller "The Precipice Game" (魔轮): Original music by Greg Yu.
And a suspense-drama, "Pegasus: On the Brink": Original music by Greg Yu, music clearance, Sound post and ADR.
A year of Victories!
It's been so exciting to be involved on 2 award-winning projects with wonderful people and sparkling talents:
"Hello Mars" by UCCVR, receiving a "2016 Golden Plume Award for Most Awaited Mobile VR Game"! ( Original music by Greg Yu and produced by Ker Sound Studios, Sound design by Benjamin l'Hotellier).
"Leonor's Lullaby" by THE POLYMORPH EXTRA, winning several awards and nominations, including "Best Original Music/Soundtrack, November 2016" at the CHANDLERINTERNATIONL FILM FESTIVAL [U.S.]! (Recording, Immersive Mixing and 7.1 surround & hybrinaural Mastering by Benjamin l'Hotellier )
What an Eventful Year!
Ker Sound have worked closely with a number of companies who have staged large-scale events throughout the year; producing orchestral music for the Lincoln MKZ launch, original music (including Chinese musical instruments and percussion) for the Adidas Manchester United China tour, audio supervision for all the installations at the Lincoln Continental launch including binaural sound design for the VR, and a 25 minute long soundtrack for Shanghai Tower's K-Boxing fashion show!
As you know, we don't only do 5.1 surround mixing, but also 7.1 surround and binaural mixing since 2015. By applying these innovative mixing techniques to video games sound effects, special events' soundtracks and international artist's songs, we are constantly pushing our expertise beyond the limits of stereo mixing!
KER Hall of Fame 2016
We had great times last year working with many celebrities. Particulary, singer JJ Lin (林俊杰) for his performance on the GAP campaign, Liu Huan (刘欢) and Wu Xiubo (吴秀波) for the Wildaid documentaries narration, ADR with Chen He (陈赫) for the film "Super Express", and Ma Sichun (马思纯) singing for the Xerox advert!
How could I forget?!
You know we produce a lot of serious music. Did you know we can also produce catchy tunes, such as Quaker's "Happy Body Song"?
[CAUTION] Once you hear the music, It's really hard to get it out of your head!!!
The toy car for the 21st century!
It's the toy car for the 21st century! Pocket Mustang by FORD is an interactive streaming App, that creates a video based on the movements of your phone when pushed like a toy car! Sounds pretty cool, right? Music supervision and SFX by Ker Sound Studios.
