Patta brought street culture to the Netherlands. The style of the streets played a big role back then, and still is a great influence on Patta. 

The street is not only a place where people move, it’s a place where people meet and interact. One busy, noisy street might seem like chaos to one, to another the same street feels like home. With this in mind we very carefully designed the sounds of the streets to match the atmosphere of the narrative. Amsterdam has to feel like home to the Amsterdam-based team of Patta. It’s a crowded place, but it’s peaceful. You hear birds, traffic, sirenes, people, every sound has it’s own place.

Later in the documentary we are visiting Tokyo. A large city, full of chances for the Patta team. It’s crowded, noisy, but exciting. We reflected these feelings in the soundscape of the city by creating a big bed of atmospherical sounds like traffic and people and highlighting certain sounds that are important for the narrative. By doing this, we are creating focus in a chaotic soundscape.
