Sequencing music can require some math… and I’m NOT the greatest math person. I made this MIDI PPQ Note Chart to help quickly reference values I need when writing or mixing and want some rhythm trickery. HopeRead More
My background allows me to work as a musician, a sound designer and audio engineer. On the best days, a project requires all of these skills working together. I love what I do. Tell me what you're doing.

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!
Reflecting on the Slow West.
Dramatic orchestral underscore.
Rock track for an advertising campaign.
Funny cartoon sequence from a kid’s show!
Django Rheinhart jazz… upbeat French acoustic jazz from the 1930s.
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.
The studio is designed as a music production and audio post production work space. Equipment and software on site are all suited for music scoring, sound design and audio post production. A variety of instruments and microphones are available for instrumental overdubs, recording vocalists, and voice over artist. More than 2TB of stock sound effects are tagged and quickly searchable; footsteps, backgrounds, transitions. Mixing and Dolby encoding for up to 5.1 surround is available.
