Sound Design for short film.

Iris van Herpen presents the short film entitled ‘Transmotion’ in collaboration with Carice van Houten, as part of the digital Paris Haute Couture week on July 6th, 2020. 

Paying homage to the brand’s Dutch roots, the homegrown actress serves as both inspiration and collaborator, starring in the film that references the illusionary style of Dutch graphic artist Maurits Cornelis Escher. The term transmotion not only depicts the process of change from one state, form, style or place to another, it is also the visionary perceptions of the seasons and the visual scenes of motion in art and literature. 

Sound Design for this film was aimed to create a feeling of physical presence, a balance between natural and technological. The concept of the creation stems from the notion of growth and regeneration. The sounds supports this sence of  growth, flowing towards the warmth of Hania Rami’s incredible piano piece.
