New York, NY (January 10, 2012)—Former Sound Lounge staff members Phil Loeb, Keith Reynaud and Gloria Pitagorsky have teamed up to form a new full service, Manhattan-based audio studio.
The new entity will reveal its name in the weeks to come, and will be located on the 5th floor of 16 West 22nd Street, where construction is well under way. In the interim, the trio will be working out of two studios on the floor below.
Loeb became a part of Sound Lounge at its inception in 1998, while Reynaud joined the company in 2002. As the two longtime collaborators put it, "These past years at the Lounge have been wonderful and we are very proud of what we've accomplished. Tom Jucarone, Peter Holcomb and Marshal Grupp have been instrumental to our careers and we will always be grateful. However, having the chance to build something from scratch is a once-in-a-career opportunity. "
"We hope to create an exciting next-generation studio that will work on commercial as well as entertainment projects," says Pitagorsky, the company's managing director. "Having worked at audioEngine, Nutmeg, HSR and Sound Lounge, I've seen it all, and this is going to be amazing!"
The company completed its inaugural session on January 4, and has set up a temporary website to keep its clients and friends up-to-date with progress.
