sound + music for media


Known for work in film, animation, ads, industrials, games, apps, and VR, sound editor/ mixer and composer Mike Hallenbeck thrives on collaboration. He welcomes the opportunity to share the excitement of audio that inspires and communicates.

Films featuring Hallenbeck's sound edit/ design, Foley, original music, and mix have won accolades in festivals around the world. His composition includes work for production music libraries like Primary (distribution: APM/ EMI) and Asche & Spencer. He's also worked in many sonic capacities on corporate communications for clients like SkillWorks, 3M, United Health Group, and Kaiser Permanente.

Hallenbeck currently serves on the Museum of Portable Sound's Board of Directors, as well as the Advisory Board of Reverend Matt's Monster Science. He is bald. When not busy working on a project, Hallenbeck can usually be found working on some other project. Failing that, he also enjoys playing with his cats, perfecting his chili recipe, and riding his bike during the 45 minutes of Minnesota weather that permits it during any given year.
