Si Gray

Exploring sound and the versatile range of contexts in which sound exists, and investigating the concept of how sound design and music can become a mechanism of aesthetic transport is vital in creating the right sound design and feel for your project. 

Across many platforms ‘sound’ is crucially important in bringing the content, vision and the story to life.   

Si’s primary goal is to offer high-quality sound design and production services within the Immersive Technologies and Music Industry. From mobile device apps to artist’s labels from the independent music community through to major label projects. Collaborative and fluid communication is key in creating an open platform where all client feedback is welcomed and as many revisions as required are discussed.
