Another success story from the Thomsonaudio camp. The track ‘Growing Pains’ is in the top 50 of the Soundtraxs competition, beating off several thousand other entries.
Soundtraxs is the brainchild of British independent production company NyAC and will see entrants compete online for their music to feature on the soundtrack of the hotly-anticipated new film Relative Desire by BAFTA award-winning director Michael Baig Clifford, starring Imogen Poots (Fright Night, 28 Weeks Later, V for Vendetta) and Harry Treadaway (Fish Tank, Control, Brothers of the Head).
Our latest profile focuses on Thomsonaudio, aka Andy Thomson, who holds an artist account with Lisnmusic. He’s also the latest member of staff to join the Lisn team and if you give the Lisn office of ring Andy’s is usually the first cheerful voice you’ll hear! Now that he’s settled in we thought it was time to shine the spotlight on Andy to find out a little more about his music background, the projects he’s worked on and his goals for the future.

“I have been playing bass in bands since 1998. I have played at venues all around the UK including Wolverhampton Civic, Manchester Academy and Leeds Metropolitan University. I have a degree in Creative Music and Sound Technology form Leeds Met Uni and before I worked for Lisn was successfully working freelance as a Sound Designer.”
“In my freelance work I have produced audio for Max Factor, Sony, Yell.com and Virgin Media. I have remixed tracks for a number of producers including the BAFTA award winning Sonke Prigge. I’ve also worked on national theatre tours as a sound designer and have worked at some of the biggest theatres in the UK as a sound designer, composer and operator – theatres include The West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds, The Everyman in Liverpool, The Lowry in Salford, and in London The Arcola and The Battersea Arts Centre.”
“One of the most exciting projects I’ve worked on has been ‘Audio Pods’ with a London-based theatre company. They are a cross between an art installation and theatre – egg shaped seats that you can sit in with full 5.1 surround speaker setup. Radio dramas play back from the speakers and put you right in the middle of the action. I did the technical specification for the pods and was the technical director on the dramas that play back.”
“With the same theatre company I have been technical director on five series of radio dramas which get played out on radio stations across the UK.”
“My goals for the future are to take a step back from my freelance work and to put all my time into Lisn, pushing the catalogue of music we have but also to really develop the bespoke side so that we can become the one stop shop for all audio requirements.”
One of our artists Thomsonaudio recently worked on a music submission for the forthcoming film ‘Sucker Punch’. Check out a teaser of the sound design in the trailer video below.
