Twist Audio Opens in SohoNew Mixing Facility Partners with Sound Lounge (October 21, 2004)
Twist Audio, a new audio post facility located at the former premises of Laredo Audio Post has launched in Soho. Mixing at Twist are Glenn Laredo, Peter Buccellato and Mark Schultz, all formerly with Laredo. They are joined by Sarah Rotondi, who handles bookings, and former ICM agent Erik Sanchez, who heads a new casting service. The studio features two, first-class recording and mixing studios, and a third room for casting.
Twist will operate as a satellite of Sound Lounge and will coordinate with Sound Lounge to provide clients with the best solutions to their audio requirements. ?There has long been a need for a first class audio facility below Hutson and by combining the talents of our mixing crew with the expertise and reputation of Sound Lounge, Twist represents the ideal solution, said Laredo. The studios mixing suites are equipped with the latest Digidesign ProTools workstations and full complements of support gear.
Laredo was one of the founders of East Side, the premiere mixing facility that also launched the career of Sound Lounge president Tom Jucarone. He launched Laredo Audio Post in 2001 and his facility served a regular clientele that included Cliff Freeman, Uniworld Group, Saatchi & Saatchi Health Care and Euro RSCG.
?This move is a big win for both sides, says Laredo. ?It helps us to serve new markets and provides us with the benefits that come with being part of the Sound Lounge family. Tom and his partners have created a company that is synonymous with excellence in audio post work and one that is held in high regard throughout the industry.
Like Laredo, Buccellato and Schultz have impressive credentials in audio post for spots. Buccellato has been an engineer for more than 20 years, including stints at The Mix Place, Mixed Nuts and Lower East Side, all in New York. Schultz, also a veteran of Mixed Nuts and Lower East Side, served for eight years as senior audio designer at Nickelodeon.
Twist Audio is located at 333 Hudson St., New York, N.Y. 10013. Sound Lounge is located at 149 5th Ave. New York, N.Y., 10010. For additional information or sales, call (212) 388-1212.
