Soundelux is an audio post production company based in Hollywood, California. Soundelux is currently a member of the TODD-SOUNDELUX group of sound companies.

The post production services company provides audio services to clients working in feature films. Soundelux supervising sound editors, sound designers and sound editors have earned nominations and honors from the Academy Awards, Emmy Awards, British Academy Awards and Golden Reel Awards.[1]

History[edit]

Lon Bender and Wylie Stateman founded Soundelux in 1982. In 1991 they partnered with Tony Miceli, David Kneupper and John Miceli to create the Soundelux Entertainment Group. Together they continued developing addition business units such as Showorks Entertainment, Modern Music, Soundelux DMG, The Hollywood Edge, MTS Cinema Services and Soundelux Microphones.

On June 9, 2000, Liberty Media Group acquired the post production and sound business of Soundelux Entertainment Group for $90M cash, a deal that replaced one agreed to in July 1999 for stock then valued at $70.3M. The purchase also included Soundelux’s location-based entertainment and theater design business, which was excluded in the earlier agreement.[2]

In 2002, Liberty Media Group rebranded itself as Ascent Media Group. The move was made to raise the company’s profile in Hollywood. At the same time, the company was split into three divisions: Ascent Media Creative Services, Ascent Media Network Services and Ascent Media Management Services. Soundelux is part of the Creative Services division, along with Todd-AO, Riot, Company 3, Method, Encore, Level 3 and POP.[3]

In October 2008, the Creative Sound Services group broke away from Ascent Media Group and the Discovery Holding Company to create CSS Studios, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Discovery Communications.[4] The services of CSS Studios are marketed under the brand names Soundelux, Todd-AO, Sound One, POP Sound, Modern Music, Soundelux Design Music Group and The Hollywood Edge. CSS Studios maintains facilities in Los Angeles and New York.

On September 19, 2012, Empire Investment Holdings announced it had acquired CSS Studios, LLC. [1]

In January 2013, CSS Studios announced it would rename the company as TODD-SOUNDELUX.[5]

On May 21, 2014, Todd-Soundelux Filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection. [6]

Services[edit]

Soundelux offers sound supervision, sound design and sound editorial for feature films. The company also boasts a library of unique sound effects that includes 400,000 original tracks.

Overseas Offices[edit]

Until 2010, Soundelux operated a facility in London. Much like its U.S.-based operations, Soundelux London was a sound design and editing facility. Eddy Joseph, the facility’s leading creative force, has been nominated for multiple BAFTA and MPSE Awards. His work on the James Bond film Quantum of Solace earned him an Academy Award nomination. In 2009, Joseph was awarded Best UK Film Sound Editor/Designer at the UK Screen Sound Awards.[7]
