Tonic Adds Composer A.J. Gundell To Roster10-time Emmy winner to create music and sound for TV, film, and commercials (November 18, 2004)
Tonic, a leader in music mixing and composition for visual media, has added Emmy Award-winning composer A. J. ?Andy Gundell to its roster. A 10-time Emmy winner, Gundell brings over 20 years of experience as a composer, songwriter, music supervisor and producer to the NYC studios.
A recipient of six Emmys for scoring/supervising, three for songwriting, and one for audio post producer, for the shows All My Children, Guiding Light, and Another World, Gundell takes a brilliant track record to the team at Tonic. With composing, scoring, and producing experience that spans drama, sports, reality, sitcoms, news, commercials, and childrens music, for clients such as ABC, CBS, NBC, ESPN, Discovery Channel, and AT&T, Gundell brings a high level of professionalism and creativity to a diverse range of productions.
The move reunites Gundell with Tonic composer Peter Fish, Gundells writing partner on two Emmy-winning projects, for everything from TV to commercials to feature-length films.
?Tonics state-of-the-art 5.1 surround facility and diverse capabilities make it one of the best post and music houses in the country, says Gundell. ?Peters TV themes and scores are outstanding, and something good always seems to happen when we work together. Im looking forward to joining him at Tonic, which is a leader in digital technologies, and just an amazing facility with an equally amazing staff.
Gundells deep experience as a music supervisor, for such shows as Cosby and All My Children, makes him uniquely prepared to work efficiently with TV, film and commercial producers/directors.
?My many years of music supervision have really enhanced my skills as a composer and songwriter, he confirms. ?Its helped me to learn to speak the same musical language as my clients, so we can communicate effectively with each other and find a truly expressive musical solution.
In addition to composing and scoring, Gundell is co-producing the upcoming Tonic Song Library (TSL), a collection of licensable songs for TV, film and multimedia. Gundell also continues in his role as a composer and post-producer for ABCs All My Children.
?We are extremely excited to add Any Gundell to our team, both for his composing and the leadership he will bring to the soon-to-be-released TSL, adds Peter Fish. ?He brings heart, love and commitment to his work, with musical sensibilities that form a perfect complement to my own writing. Tonic is growing quickly, and his tremendous skills add another dimension to what we can accomplish here.
