900+ sounds sampled. 6 days of shooting. Countless days of editing. As New Yorkers eagerly await a full reopening, the Bonamaze directing duo celebrates the spirit of the city with the release of their new short, “NYC! Sound (back) On.” The goal of this creative, audio-visual homage is to capture the heartbeat of the Big Apple like never before, with a special emphasis on sound that brings the city’s diverse culture to vibrant life. Selected as Vimeo Staff Pick - Best of the Month and winner of Best Unscripted and Best Use of Sound & Music at Berlin Commercial 2021.

Directing, Videography, Production, Music and Arrangements are all completely original by Gilad Avnat & Stav Nahum aka "BONAMAZE”, a directing duo, specializing in creating a “Visual Sound Experience”- and created 100% by us. We sample hundreds of original sounds that the universe produces, and we use them to make a musical video that presents the subject in the most exciting way. Bonamaze’s distinctive audio flare has enlivened campaigns for Coca-Cola, Cheerios, M&Ms, Snickers, and more.
