Sound Design

We take a broad and comprehensive approach to sound design.

We do sound analysis for the specific project and generate a detailed specification. But the spcification isn't simply a blueprint to follow. It's a basic template to support the provision of creative and novel audio solutions using the most advanced engineeering tools and techniques.

We support cinema and television production, musical instrument development, sound art, video games, post-production, live performance, theater, audiobooks, and radio.

Sonic Branding

We consult with commercial entities to develop "sonic logos" or Soundmarks® as part of their sonic branding marketing plan.
We work to provide the sonic elements of commercial branding packages. The composition and production of sonic logos can be challenging and involve more engagement than a film score. A significant amount of specific emotional response has to be accomplished within a piece of very short duration.

The sonic logo is as important as a specific font or a color scheme. Since it's the basis for a sonic branding campaign a great deal depends on it. Ghost Particle provides sonic logo solutions of high-quality in record time.

We excel in the recontextualizing of melodies for marketing applications.

Our methodology is deeply influenced by the work of Professor Charles Spence and the Crossmodal Group at Oxford University.
