Skill Overview

Sound Design

I hold a B.M. from Berklee College of Music and I‘m an alumni of Sweetwater’s Sales Engineer program. There, I held AVID, SSL, API and DANTE certifications as well as managed a database of around 5,000 customers. During my tenure at Sweetwater I taught musicians and audio nerds internationally. I‘ve been a multi-instrumentalist and sound engineer for 10+ years now and a professional audio educator for 5+ years.

As a sound designer I utilize many different kinds of synthesis, recording and mixing techniques to craft original SFX for brands, directors and studios. These run the gamut from procedural re-synthesis to re-amping, to a hybrid modular to ableton workflow. I record much of my own samples and also own thousands of dollars of blockbuster film and AAA game level SFX.

For the fellow audio nerds out there, here's a shortlist of some of the tools I rely on:

Sound Design Testimonials

Chris worked as the sound designer on my senior thesis animated film. He did an amazing job of
making my animation stronger with his sound design. He was great at receiving my feedback and
direction for what I wanted to achieve in a horror/comedy film. My film is currently competing in film
festivals and I believe that it wouldn't be as successful if not for Chris's involvement in it. He
responded really well to a student's hectic and busy schedule and met deadlines even after I adjusted
them. If you need someone who is as passionate and committed to your project as you are I would

Kate Vaillant (Ringling Animation School)

I have had the privilege of working with Chris Barry on several projects this year - he has been an invaluable sound designer, sound editor, and Foley artist for my audio post-production company, AudioBrew. Not only does Chris exceed in these roles, he also lends wonderful insight and opinions that lead to an overall stronger product. That said, he is always respectful and never pushy. Chris is a fun and lovely person to work with, and goes above and beyond to insure that his contributions are meaningful. I highly recommend!

Audio Brew : Adam Traister (Owner/Audio Director)

I got to work with Chris on an award-winning animated short where I was the composer and he was the sound designer. It was incredible working with him because it felt like a truly collaborative process where we kept each other in the loop at all times - which definitely contributed to the overall quality of the soundtrack - as we kept in mind each other's creative choices. Lucky me, Chris also did the final mix of music, sound, and dialogue which further proved his capabilities of understanding the drama, applying feedback, and serving the story while maintaining his artistry! What a teammate to have!
