New York, NY (December 9, 2003)–Audio post company audioEngine has added mixer Carl Mandelbaum. Formerly of The ANX, Mandelbaum expands the creative reach of audioEngine, which includes top mixers Bob Giammarco, Tom Goldblatt, Rex Recker, Joe Vagnoni, and John Grant. The company, known for both its talent and unique creative environment, has contributed to commercials for Heineken, GMC, Pepsi, Victoria’s Secret, Major League Baseball, Nike, and Intel.
“Carl is an exceptionally talented mixer who brings enthusiasm to each project,” notes general manager Michael Porte. “In addition to his mixing ability, he has a unique sound design technique and methodology that increases our set of services for our clients.”
Mandelbaum’s life-long interest in music and sound translated into the mixing realm, where he lends his experience and creativity to the post production process. “I enjoy problem solving,” he remarks. “I always strive to bring something to the mix and to build on the creative concept. I don’t mind getting my hands dirty to take the spot to the next level. It’s exciting to be at audioEngine with mixers who share this philosophy.”
Mandelbaum discovered his passion for commercials at Photomag where he worked as a mixer and sound designer from 1991-2000. He then helped to create The ANX, where he spent the last four years garnering loyal clients including editors at Bug, Consulate, Final Cut and Red Car, and contributing to high profile spots for Citibank, Nike, Staples and Nikon. It was his longstanding relationship with the audioEngine team that made his eventual move to audioEngine a natural transition.
