we live to make music & sound design for creative filmmakers and advertising companies. We make the sound, you do the winning.
The power of sound
Most, if not all, production sound is replaced after the fact with accurately crafted foley, ambience, sound effects and music to create a truly immersive experience.
“ Sonic Champs is a collaboration between two creative artists. Based in Amsterdam, we create a modern hybrid between music & sound-design for branding films and commercials.
Working in a small team allows for tight collaboration and quick and easy communication. Our experience as music producers in various musical styles allows us to morph between different sounds to create new sonic identities.
We truly believe that our clients are the true champions, we are the pit crew, and we are here to support you along your race to the finish line.”
