Courtney Grace Sound Design Demo

For this sound design demo I added all of the sound effects. I also used music editing to stitch together different parts of a few traditional Japanese songs, matching the timing and mood with the action of the animation.

I would highly recommend Courtney. She excels in music production including vocal recording, song structure tweaking, harmony, drum-beat creation, mixing/mastering, and molding an overall sound.

As much as I appreciate her technical skills, she has great communication skills and is meticulous with all projects details - thoughtful consideration of lyrics, documentation, invoices, etc.

After having worked on roughly 10 songs with me, it's a pleasure knowing that I don't have to worry about managing her, because she is a highly skilled, talented, self-driven machine.
