Bent Ear were founded by Simeon Davies & Sean Mortimer.
With over 500 works to our name, we have over 12 years' experience with a reputation for imaginative, exciting and innovative audio. We like to work with clients from the earliest consultation stages, through to the very end of the project.
We've dragged microphones behind cars, played bells and cymbals in an empty St Paul's Cathedral at 6am, recorded premiership football matches with the most advanced surround microphones known to man, tortured luxury cars in giant anechoic chambers, hurled aluminium and brass bars into water tanks with hydrophones and captured the ghostly EM fields from electricity pylons. Oh, and written music. Lots of it.
The nuts & bolts stuff we can also help you with includes: audio post, music & soundtrack mixing & editing, SFX & foley recording, vocal & dialog recording, dialog editing, arranging & production of voiceover sessions, ADR, audio restoration and surround sound mixing (up to 7.1)
We can also help you with your music consultation and licensing.
We also have a large back catalogue of music we've composed for BMGZomba / Universal: unippm.co.uk and enter "simeon davies" in the quick search bar.
