Chester is available for

Any audio engineering work, particularly immersive sound design for narrative or audio drama podcasts. Also looking for scoring opportunities.

I have a fully equipped location sound kit and I'm available for field recording and tape syncs in NJ, Eastern PA, and NYC.

I also have a Covid-19 Safe Remote VO Recording Kit, which is a USB microphone and a tablet computer on which the session can be conducted via remote desktop. Very cool!

About Chester

I am a sound designer, composer, and production sound mixer with over ten years experience as an audio engineer, musician, and tour manager. Recent projects include sound design for three audio dramas for Audible, re-recording mixing for two Adult Swim specials, and production sound mixing for Strawberry Mansion, a feature film which premiered at Sundance 2021.  I was the sole sound designer for The Sea in the Skywhich Audible's editors picked as one of the top ten listens of 2020.

As a music producer, I collaborated with some of Baltimore's breakthrough artists including Future Islands and Dan Deacon, with the Baltimore Sun describing me as "the city's best producer of indie-rock". As an audio consultant, I spent several years working with Wham City Lights, creators of a smartphone app that used ultra high frequency audio to trigger interactive light shows. Clients included Disney Land, Cirque du Soleil, the NBA, and America's Got Talent.

I'm interested in stereoscopic photography, birdwatching, and bicycling.  I built my own binaural head mic.

I am currently working as a local in NYC, Philadelphia, and everywhere in between.

**NEW** Covid Remote VO Kit This kit is available for jobs which require high quality recording but need to be self-recorded by the interviewee or talent. The DAW is operated remotely by me, and audio is recorded locally onto the tablet as well as remotely via CleanFeed. The kit is a tablet computer and a Rode USB mic, plus accessories. I’m encouraging people to use their own headphones, but an unopened set of earbuds is included if needed.
