Ring The Alarm expands audio resources via partnership with Therapy Studios
- CULVER CITY, Calif.
Ring The Alarm (RTA) has bolstered its services as part of a growing partnership with postproduction facility Therapy Studios. RTA recently moved its base from Boyle Heights to Therapy’s new state-of-the art studio in Culver City, providing another way for Therapy and RTA to cross-pollinate their talent pool to provide clients with the best possible services.
Now under the same roof with Therapy, RTA adds the sound design and mixing talents of Eddie Kim and his audio team to its offerings. Clients of Therapy and RTA both have direct access to Kim’s skillset. He becomes RTA’s go-to/in-house sound designer and mixer. Therapy’s client-base can continue to call upon Kim’s mixing and sound design services directly, a la carte, or as part of Therapy’s end-to-end post offering.
Kim’s sonic stylings can be heard in assorted ad campaigns, in addition to numerous features, short films, documentaries, music videos, VR projects, and video games. His work on the Foo Fighters’ HBO docu-series Sonic Highways (produced by Therapy Studios’ sister company Therapy Content) earned him two Emmys for Outstanding Sound Editing for Non-Fiction programing, and Outstanding Sound Mixing for Non-Fiction programing, and a Golden Reel for mixing. Throughout his career, he’s consistently received honors from London International, Cannes Grand Prix, AICP, D&AD, and the Clio Awards. He has served on the juries for the Clios and AICP for sound technique in film.
With several successful collaborations for Beats Music under their belts, the dual representation opens Kim up to a host of new clients and partnerships. He explained, “Pursuing more projects together as an all-in-one audio offering is a natural step forward based on the stellar work we’ve created together. Becoming a part of RTA’s roster is an awesome portal for me to continue to do the work I love to do.”
Along with RTA’s move to the westside comes growth internally. Dylan Marder, who has been part of the RTA team as a producer since 2014, has been promoted to executive producer. Marder has a decade of experience in the commercial music industry, having got his start managing the Duke Ellington Orchestra in New York, touring with the big band and putting his jazz degree to good use. Since that time he’s evolved his career, working as a composer, engineer, music library specialist, sales rep, and producer--culminating in his new post as EP, where he oversees all RTA projects across music production, sound design, and mix.
