The Beat of NY

Amazing documentary short film about NYC.

“The Beat of New York” was an impromptu recording made by Tim Hahne and Thomas Noesner of a drum session in the subway after they were done filming a Mercedes shoot.

“Thomas Noesner, our DoP, was in New York for a shoot of the new Mercedes R-Class. Right after the job, he took his camera and strolled through the busting streets of „The City“. While screening the pictures of a drummer in the tube station, I had the idea of creating a „remix“ of the recorded drum sequence to use it as a soundtrack for the film. That´s when our sounddesigner Toussaint came into play… We composed a track around the drum beat of this guy. Watch and listen to the beat of New York!”
