Hands in the Sink, by Not a Wimp

We made a track for a compilation of music about washing your hands - now more important then ever! It was put together by fellow collaborator and friend Zak Engel with all proceeds going to Feed the Children


“Wash your hands.” You’ve said it countless times to yourself and your kids, but now it’s more important than ever. So we’re here to back you up. It’s music for all ages to make washing a little more fun, and what’s even better—it’s for a good cause:
While the album is free to download, we hope you will choose to “pay what you want.” Whatever amount you choose is greatly appreciated, as all proceeds will be sent in-full to @feedthechildrenorg .
Feed the Children exists to fight childhood hunger. Struggling children and families need your help more than ever during this COVID-19 crisis. Each dollar donated will provide $7 worth of the food and essentials they are working tirelessly to get into the hands of the most vulnerable.
Featuring original music by, @thechickensound, @ivabriggs, @glatthorn, @boblordmusic, @andrewjmarr, @found.objects, @sounds_like_jack, @exrob, Dan Rosato, @sonosanctus, and me! Mastered by @mixandtrack 🎵 Album art by @timmylines 🎨 .

Nickelodeon Network ID's

A few months ago, Nickelodeon approached us with the task of creating new musical versions of their classic mnemonic. We helped them refresh the brand with ten different songs using this classic Nick melody. With each spot we tailored the music and integrated sound design to fit each ID for a network wide sonic rebrand. Check a few of them out here!

Cause + Effect

Some new sound design work for Intel with our friends over at Cause + Effect ! Sound design and mix by Stephen Hermann

Intel came to us with a question; how do they clearly articulate what Optane Memory™ does and how it works? Understanding this groundbreaking technology shouldn't be complicated- in fact, we thought it should be as easy as making pancakes!

Helmed by ECD Jamie Hubbard and Art Director Nick Jernigan, this expertly designed + animated fully CG spot breaks down how Optane Memory has all the necessary ingredients to make PCs more responsive, and ultimately more powerful.
