COMPOSER/ AUDIO ENGINEER/ RESTORATION

MY NAME IS SHAWN PARKE AND I HAVE BEEN PRODUCING AND ENGINEERING MUSIC FOR 25 YEARS. I BECAME A CERTIFIED ENGINEER IN 2005 UNDER SCOTT COLBURN AND DAVID MILES HUBER (AUTHOR OF MODERN RECORDING TECHNIQUES).

I  WORK WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF DIRECTORS, INDIE ARTISTS, BANDS, LABELS AND ACTS IN MANY GENRES AND CAPACITIES: COMPOSING, PRODUCING, MIXING, MASTERING,  EDITING, DESIGNING COVER ART AND LAYOUT, ONE SHEETS, PRESS AND PROMOTION.

CURRENTLY, I AM THE CO-FOUNDER OF CATHEDRAL SOUNDS WHERE I WORK WITH MY PARTNER KIM HENNINGER. WE PRODUCE AND COMPOSE MUSIC FOR FILM AND MEDIA. AS WELL AS WORKING WITH SINGER SONGWRITERS, BANDS AND LABELS.

ORIGINAL COMPOSING

I COMPOSE MUSIC FOR FEATURE LENGTH FILMS, SHORT FILMS AND INTERNATIONAL AD CAMPAIGNS. I AM CURRENTLY WORKING ON A THE FEATURE FILM - NOT ALONE.

BECAUSE I AM A MUSICIAN AS WELL AS AN ENGINEER I CAN OFFER THE SMOOTHEST DELIVERY AND COMMUNICATION WITH YOUR TEAM. I AM CONSTANTLY EXPLORING AND EXPERIMENTING WITH WAYS TO MANIPULATE SOUND.

THE FACT THAT I AM AN ENGINEER IS AN ADDED ADVANTAGE TO MY WRITING WITH MY EXTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE I CAN MAKE ANY SOUND AND CREATE SOUNDSCAPES THAT FEEL AS IF THEY EXIST IN THE WORLDS OF THE FILMS I WRITE FOR. I LOVE SCORING FILM AND THE MOMENT THE SCORE BONDS WITH THE PICTURE.
