Grand Central Record Studios, a leading Soho, London based sound design and audio post
production facility, has promoted Aaron Taffel to the position of senior sound designer.
Taffel has worked at GCRS for seven years and has sound designed for many high-profile clients, including Sky Cinema, Nike, Heineken, FIFA, PlayStation, Jaguar and Friends of the Earth. His work has also won multiple awards.
Taffel used to produce demos for bands, which then led to him undertaking a degree in Music Production and Technology. He started out at GCRS in 2013 as a trainee transfer engineer, working his way up to his first solo project sound designing for the award-winning short film The Voice in the Head.
Taffel told Shots: “My biggest learning has probably been how integral sound design is to the storytelling of moving picture, whether that’s a short ad spot to a feature film. There is some exciting work taking place at GCRS and I’m looking forward to continuing to develop my craft in one of the best facilities in Europe.”

Managing director of GCRS, Carole Humphrey, added: “We’re really proud of how Aaron has developed both his sound design and mixing skills. He has some great and varied work and is sought out by discerning directors and creatives alike who admire his passion for his craft. Anyone who hasn’t worked with him yet doesn’t know what they’re missing.”
