Photo by David Goggin.Los Angeles, CA, (January 3, 2008)--The composers at Mutato Muzika, the production company founded by Devo co-founder Mark, are using Avastor hard drives for producing, archiving and backing up the 200-plus projects created at the studios each year.
"Avastor drives are rock solid and extremely reliable," says senior composer Albert Fox. "I have all my projects and backups on these drives. In the past we've had drives from a number of big name manufactures fail on us, but Avastor has a perfect track record."
The Mutato Muzika scoring team was nominated in 2007 for Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition for their work on Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!, a top show on Kids WB!. Other TV shows include Rugrats, Pee-Wee's Playhouse, HBO's Big Love, and the films Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Bottle Rocket.
"We also like the fact that Avastor drives have no powerbrick walwarts," explains Albert Fox. "You plug the drives right into the wall and don't have to give up two spaces on an already cluttered power strip. And the HDX-800's triple interface means that you can connect anywhere you go. You don't have to worry about whether the connection will be right."
The scoring team at Mutato Muzika has also provided distinctive music for commercial clients such as Apple, Nike, Hummer, Burger King, and McDonalds. Videogame projects from the Mutato studios include Sims 2 and Crash Bandicoot.
