Sound Is The Storyteller

Patrick Balthrop

FOUNDER / SOUND DESIGNER

Our ears don't tell us what to think, they tell us how to feel. I'm Patrick. I design sound and make music. I opened Interactive Sound & Fury in 2014.

Some people want to know about the awards I've won, but I keep them in a cardboard box in my studio. Some people want to talk about the things I've worked on in the past, but the important sound I will hear today is the one I'm designing right now.

I don't like to repeat myself when I'm creating. I love working with passionate people on cool projects. I feel fortunate to have worked on games, trailers, VR experiences, albums, and creative A.I. I can't wait to make something with you.

I live in beautiful Seattle, Washington.
