Scott Persson will work with the mixing staff at Sound Lounge Hudson.
Sound Lounge, a premiere provider of audio post-production services to the advertising and entertainment industries, has completed a major expansion by adding a second location on Hudson Street in New York City’s SoHo district. Sound Lounge Hudson features two state-of-the-art 5.1 mixing suites. It will also serve as the home for the company’s new music and sound design division.
Sound Lounge president Tom Jucarone noted that a number of ad agencies, production companies, editorial houses and other providers of creative services for advertising have recently set up shop in SoHo, creating demand for local access to top-tier audio post-production services.
Sound Lounge Hudson will offer a full spectrum of audio services, including mixing for television (SD and HD), full radio production and voice casting. Through the company’s new music and sound design division, it will also offer original music production and sound design services. Along with the two 5.1 mixing suites, the studio’s physical resources include a music recording studio, a live room, a writer’s studio, a casting room and a client lounge.
The SoHo studio’s mixing staff will include Scott Persson (pictured), who joins Sound Lounge from McHale Barone, the award-winning radio production company, and Peter Buccellato, who has more than 20 years of experience as a mixer including stints at The Mix Place, Mixed Nuts and Lower East Side, all in New York.
Sound Lounge’s new music and sound design division will be headed by Brad Stratton as executive producer. Stratton previously served as a music producer at the New York post house Fluid. He also formerly headed music production at the New York ad agency, D’Arcy.
The creative staff of Sound Lounge’s music and sound design division includes Marshall Grupp, a co-founder of Sound Lounge and one of the industry’s most respected sound designers, and composer Kevin Ferguson, co-founder of London’s Boiler Room. Composer Harry Frost has also joined Sound Lounge.
Heading a new sales effort to support the expansion is Jack Fahey, who joins Sound Lounge from the design and visual effects house Spontaneous, where he was head of sales. Fahey will initially focus on building client relations at the new SoHo site and for the new music and sound design service.
