Original compositions & complete audio-postproduction. Good Sounds received a ‘Gouden Kalf’ nomination for the music.
Director: Arne Toonen
With our comprehensive network and two dedicated in-house composers we produce any kind of music for any kind of footage. Music that enhances, boosts and underlines your material. Whether you need an orchestral piece, a pumping floorfiller or a killer speedmetal-track: we'll make it. Some of our composers and performers have played the biggest stages in the world. Some of them actually never left their home studio. All of them have in common that they excel in their field and deliver top-notch quality.
We are specialists at re-recording any kind of song into a newly made masterfile that exactly sounds like the original, or realizes the artistic interpretation of your own preference. We’re collaborating with a broad range of artists who are specialised in creating sounds that reflect work of all ages, of any genre. Using a re-recording can be a cost- efficient option, or just give that extra bite to the original that you missed.
Don’t know exactly what kind of music you need? Our creatives love to search the coolest and best material for you. We have speed dial buttons for the biggest publishers and major labels in case you want to use an existing commercial (hit)recording (sometimes you can’t beat an existing track). Obviously we'll take care of all the legal stuff as well so you don't have to worry about that.
Beeps, clicks, opening doors, fast moving cars, yellow laserswords... We know how to make it sound real and blend it perfectly with the footage, voice-over and music. We remember having discussed the sound of a piece of cheddar cheese for over 20 minutes. Yes, we do take sound design seriously. We also offer services like foley recording, voice-over recording and mixing & mastering.
Our listening behavior has changed drastically since we're using smartphones and laptops all the day. But in the meanwhile we’re still mostly listening to regular stereo mixes... The answer to that? 3D-audio. To continue delivering the best sound we joined forces with Timber 3D, and we developed the necessary tools to bring full cinematic sound to headphones and small speakers. The final result serves your creative vision. Truly as amazing as it sounds!
Good Sounds is a boutique music production agency founded in 2004 by Jurriaan Balhuizen, Pieter Brouwer and Ad Rietvelt. Based at the offices of Postoffice – one of the leading Postproduction collectives in The Netherlands – we create music and sound design and do sync licensing for the advertising, film/broadcasting and interactive worlds. Together with an ever-growing army of composers, that cover any style and genre that you can think of, we work on our main goal: supplying music that underlines, enhances, boosts and supports your footage. We have worked with some of the biggest brands that are active on our globe and helped them to use music as an instrument to amplify their sales, and we have supplied the music for numerous TV-productions, films and series to push the limits of their material. So whether you’re looking for an original composition, a re-recording, sound design or the synchronisation of an existing track: we do it all. And we’re there to assist you in the process.For more of our work please visit our Vimeo page.
