SOUND DESIGN FOR FISKER KARMA

The days of Knight Rider have arrived: I've been developing sounds for Fisker's new electric sports car, Karma. 

This project has been under wraps for some time, AS THIS will be the first electric car to feature surreal engine sounds. The prototypes I've been working on ARE otherworldly.  Hopefully this trend takes off and I can stop worrying about being hit by a Prius every time I step off the curb..

THE UNKNOWN

I've signed on to compose the Sci-Fi Television short The Unknown, starring Conroe Brooks. Excited for this one, as running time is about 20 minutes and there is only 2 words of dialog in the entire film. WELL, That leaves the storytelling up to me in the AUDIO department..
