How I Work: Andrew Tracy From One Thousand Birds
Pro Sound Effects have published the next edition of How I Work. This time it features Andrew Tracy from One Thousand Birds.
Sound Designer and Mixer Andrew Tracy cut his teeth as a freelancer working in various studios in Los Angeles. When Pro Sound Effects made their next generation library available to freelancers with the release of the Hybrid Library, Andrew was apparently the first to jump on board.
Today, Andrew Tracy runs One Thousand Birds in Brooklyn, where he and his team create immersive sonic landscapes for broadcast, web, theatre, and more. One Thousand Birds' main studio is on the top floor of an old printing factory has been open for over two years. It has a mix room and two edit rigs setup for 5.1 with a voice-over/Foley booth. With its 20-foot ceilings, old doors and exposed brick, the large, open space has the feel of a live venue and plays host to a monthly concert series.
It's where we host our monthly concert series OTB Live. One Sunday a month we have three bands come and play a 4-song set. We usually have about 50 people, it's always a great time.
Tracy has recently opened a satellite mix room in Manhattan's Chinatown with a larger mix room and a voice-over booth set up for 5.1 mixing.
For more on How Andrew Tracy Works, including his favourite equipment, thoughts on the business, and where he finds inspiration, read the full interview here.
