Active Light Sound on SoundBetter

We create inspiring soundtracks for film and media.

Active Light Sound collaborates with filmmakers and artists with writing and recording a customized soundtrack for their film or media. We place our priority on creatively composing a musical landscape that suits our clients vision. Hiring a composer to write music that flows in time with the mood and emotion portrayed on the screen also gives the film it's own dramatic voice and helps bring the humanity in to the film. A lot of filmmakers settle for choosing music from a media library which by its very nature is generic and will fail to give the film the independent voice it deserves. In contrast our team offers a complete package including composing, producing, orchestrating, performing, recording, mixing, and mastering while finding a solution to work within your budget. We believe in making art with purpose and without limitations.

We are meticulous about sound and can cover any genre of soundtrack. We like to maintain a strong communication throughout working on a project to make sure that everyone is on the same page. We also guarantee our work and believe that no project is complete until it resonates.

Interview with Active Light Sound

  1. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  2. A: Film and music is our passion and we get fully immersed in to every project we work on and continue to revise a song until it gives us goosebumps. Also we collaborate with our clients to build and record a song ground up and they are in contact with us during the full process.

  9. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  10. A: I'm inspired by anyone that puts their heart and soul in to the creative process of making music and art.

  11. Q: What's your typical work process?

  12. A: PRE PRODUCTION Every collaboration starts with a conversation and we love connecting with filmmakers to view their film and hear their vision for their project. We offer a full creative brief where we can go over fine details while setting the foundation for how we approach the music. During the pre production stage we like to build a strong sense of communication with who we are working with. Prior to entering production we will share sound samples to ensure being on the same page. PRODUCTION Once the outline for the composition is in place we can enter production. The first stage is recording where we capture all our music in the Active Light Studio. We are meticulous about every detail while we compose and capture the sound, and continually tweak and explore sonics until it resonates. The second stage involves mixing and editing to bring the music to a professional quality of standard for cinema. POST PRODUCTION After the final mix is in place the music can go in to mastering. We provide our clients with two versions of the final audio, one that is mastered for iTunes and another that is mastered for film. We can then take the finished music and assist with mixing the audio directly to the film.
