Gisburg (Audio For Film & TV)

I’ve been working in music and film studios in NYC for over 23 years, pretty much doing anything: singing in front of the mic, recording behind the console, putting up mics, scoring films, running Foley, getting the right Sound effects, cleaning up noise  on Dialog tracks, playing the piano, cutting music to film and being enthusiastic when a 1 frame nudge makes all the difference, mixing Orchestra pieces, mastering records….

A short bio: Arriving in NYC via Berlin and Salzburg I released several CDs on John Zorn’s label Tzadik and on GP music and was a guest on numerous recordings. I’ve received several composition grants and the music pieces were performed in Berlin, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Salzburg and Vienna (a.m.o.)

I sang Chinese Music as a member of the Chinese Hai-Tien choir with Mrs. Pi-Chu Hsiao for over seven years and recorded with Gary Lucas Chinese pop music of the 30’s and 50’s for label blue.

For Film I also work as a sound and music editor/assistant  and mixer with directors such as Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Abigail Child, Ethan Coen, Robert Duvall, Rob Marshall, Sophie Barthes, and Amie Siegel.
