Dramatic orchestral underscore.



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.
