As part of a major expansion initiative, Soho audio post-production facility The Voice and Music Company has been rebranded under the new name of Soho Square Studios.
The 21-year-old, independently-owned company will continue to offer its current range of sound design, mixing, recording and composing services.
The purpose of the rebrand – which includes a new logo and website – is manifold: to emphasise the upgrade of sound studios to Pro Tools 9 and the streamlining of digital workflows, as well as to usher in a new phase of expansion for the film, TV and commercials business in the wake of two personnel appointments.
Award-winning sound engineer Simon Capes joins Soho Square Studios with 30 years’ experience gained from his time at both the Tape Gallery and Silk Sound, while dubbing mixer and sound designer James Doyle has a long list of TV and film credits from his previous position at Pinewood Studios.
Company co-founder, managing director and composer Alan Coates commented: “With our current growth and reputation for audio post-production excellence, it feels like the right time to show off our fantastic studios and amazing location on the Square. Giving the company a new name really helps us to do that.”
Fellow co-founder Kim Goody added: “The wealth of talent and experience that both Simon and James bring us will seriously bolster our established commercials business and our ever-expanding TV and film services.”
The company’s many credits include commercials for Xbox (McCaans), McDonalds (Leo Burnett) and Bathstore (M&C Saatchi); the TV shows How To Look Good Naked (Maverick Television), Roary the Racing Car (Chapman Entertainment), Great Historic Sites (Pilot Film and TV) and What Went Wrong With the Olympics (BBC Radio 4/Tiger Aspect); and international clients such as Disney Character Voices and Pixar.
