The Lab

 

 

What is the Lab anyway?

Dna Lab is a music and audio post production multitask force. We are team of composers, musicians, producers, sound editors, sound designers, mixers that creates, handles, curates and even distributes audible entities.

One of our main objectives is the production of original music for TV, Film or theater. With modern means of production in combination with talent, taste and experience we can create anything except Higgs bozons. Of course, shinny music is terrible when overused, underused or put in the wrong places and that is our biggest concern when working on a project.

But wait , there is more. After 15 years of music making , the Lab expanded it’s operations to sound design and mixing. We were displeased when our music was used in films with bad sound we decided to do the design and mixing our self. So, we created a Dolby approved a mixing stage trained like Rocky and here we are.

More? Yes, Dna Lab members collaborate with each other on pure old fashioned music making. We liked the results and had to release them in the outside world. So, we created the Dna Label, our small but adorable little label.
