What I Do

  • Music Production
  • Sound Design
  • Audio Post Production


The composer John Cage might say that sound design was just a form of music composition. Cage studied under the legendary Arnold Schoenberg who coined the term Tonmeister – a person who creates recordings or broadcasts of music who is both deeply musically trained, in classical and non-classical genres, and also who has a detailed theoretical and practical knowledge of virtually all aspects of sound recording.

Sounds Like Joe LLC is loosely built around these concepts. For modern visual media, Music Composition and Sound Design and Audio Engineering are all intertwined on some level. A central location for audio post production eliminates repetitive explanations and centralizes your process. In addition to efficiency, the best results happen when your music composition & sound design are conceptualized to work together in service of the narrative.



Here are a few quick samples of recent work. These samples will change frequently and may range from emotionally intense dramatic underscore to whimsical music for cartoons. These don’t represent any specific style or artistic statement…. it’s just a rotation of the latest projects to pass through the studio. Thanks for listening!

    How to Quantize Automation in Cubase

    Cubase has great automation features and a solid quantization scheme in general (midi, audio, event snapping, etc). But… It’s odd that there is no menu option to quantize selected automation events. I hope they change that. I
