Audiomachine is an American production music company based in Beverly Hills, California. The company was founded by Paul Dinletir and Carol Sovinski in August 2005, producing music composed by Paul Dinletir and Kevin Rix.[1][2]

About the company[edit]

Audiomachine mainly produces music for movie trailers and advertisements, but recently its music has also been featured in the 2010, 2012 and 2014 Olympic games official program labeled as Epic Music.[3][4]

Many of Audiomachine's tracks have been featured in theatrical movie trailers, including those of Avatar, The Chronicles of Narnia films, Iron Man, Venom, Avengers: Endgame, and others.

Originally, Audiomachine released albums only for the film industry's professional use, but since 2012 it has released selected albums and compilations for the general public as well. The industry-released albums include Deus Ex Machina, Phenomena, Origins, Leviathan, Awakenings, Millennium, and Monolith.[5][6][7][8][9][10]

Composers[edit]

Paul Dinletir[edit]

Paul Dinletir initially just played piano and wanted to be a songwriter and jazz pianist. His wife was able to get him into a film and television music UCLA taught by Robert Etoll, who is now a collaborator. This led to him becoming a composer for X-Ray Dog where he composed trailers for cartoons (such as Samurai Jack until season 4) and reality TV shows; from that he saw the enjoyment he got from trailer music and eventually did that full time. Dinletir's influences are Mozart, Beethoven, Debussy; he regularly listens to soundtracks.[11] He used Logic Pro software for 15 years and switched to Steinberg Cubase.[12]

Kevin Rix[edit]

Kevin Rix started out playing guitar and was in various rock bands growing up. At music school, where he was introduced to classical music and jazz, he started realizing his interests in composing and in working with different instruments and sounds. After a few years he decided to do it professionally. At first he wanted to get into writing film soundtracks. While he was working on a demo reel, he obtained a job editing and mixing ringtones for a company, where he met Dinletir. He started in the profession as Dinletir's assistant doing sound design. Rix's influences include Mozart, Bach, Debussy, Rush, Mastodon, Soundgarden, Hans Zimmer, and Harry Gregson-Williams.[11]

Placements[edit]

Along with Harry Gregson-Williams, Audiomachine is responsible for the soundtrack of the 2014 video game, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, the first game in the Call of Duty series to be developed by Sledgehammer Games.[13][14]
