About Owner/Head Engineer Scott Hirsch

Scott Hirsch is a recording and mix engineer, sound designer, and musician.

After starting out in post production at BAVC in San Francisco, Scott relocated to New York City in 2007, where he honed his craft as a film sound designer. As he obtained a master’s degree focused on spatialized audio in post­-production at New York University, Scott embedded himself as a sound fixture among the New York independent film scene. While moonlighting in a 5th Avenue commercial post-­house (Creative Media Design), Scott edited, sound designed, and mixed films by directors Rick Alverson, Joe Wladyka, Trey Edward Shultz, Andrew Renzi, Sam Fleischner, Pamela Romanowsky, Matthew Porterfield, Francis Bodomo, Adam Rapp, Lawrence Michael Levine, Jonathan Caouette, Chris Mason Johnson, and many more.

These filmmakers played and won multiple awards at the Cannes, Sundance, Berlinale, Tribeca, and SXSW festival circuit with the films Scott worked on over the last seven years. After obtaining his masters degree, Scott went on to teach multiple courses in sound at NYU.

Scott is also a musician and music producer, and in 2014 recorded a Grammy nominated album by folk legend Alice Gerrard. His first solo record Blue Rider Songs was released in August, 2016. He has also played on and produced four full length albums and several eps by band Hiss Golden Messenger.

Scott is a firm believer in sharing his knowledge and experience through education. He has taught as an adjunct professor at NYU's Steinhardt music technology program, as well as Stephen F. Austin University's music and media department and continues to be involved in both programs. You may watch one of many courses Scott teaches for here
