Seaside Sound is a post-production sound and music composition studio in Victoria, BC, run by composer and sound designer David Parfit.
This is a holistic sound company. Sound doesn’t arrive at our ears separated into Pro Tools tracks, it comes as interwoven pieces, combining to form a single experience. Each element – be it a spoken word, or a violin run – is its own piece of music, described by pitch and timbre over time. In creating and combining these musical elements, David bring awareness and knowledge of the whole soundscape and how it intertwines with the visual to fulfill the creator’s intentions.
Technically speaking, we provide original music, music production, and every step of the audio post-production process for all media (including film, broadcast TV, commercials, and interactive media), from the initial OMF/AAF ingest to the final mix. This includes dialog editing, sound design, sfx editing, foley, and mixing. We can deliver 5.1, LtRt, and stereo mixes and stems that conform to the delivery spec, be it for broadcast, the web, or the theatre.
Whether it's complex ambient textures, a string quartet, grinding analog synths, or anything in between, we can provide fully produced original music for all media in stereo and 5.1
The first step in the post production process is usually editing. We can provide quality dialog, sound effects, and music editing to create seamless sonic assets.
Sound Design and Foley
With a huge sound fx library of collected and purchased sounds, a treated foley room, a Sanken CSS5 in a Rycote for all weather ambience and real-world sound collection, and a huge range of processing tools at hand, we are well-equiped to handle any creative sound design project.
We can provide a final mix in-house for broadcast, the web, or the film festival circuit. For theatrical films, we can pre-mix in-house and bring our Pro Tools session to a theatrical environment for the final mix.
