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.

Hallenbeck's creations have been supported by the American Composers Forum, featured on Minnesota Public Radio, blogged upon by Walker Art Center, and acclaimed by City Pages and Lavender Magazine. He currently serves on the Museum of Portable Sound's Board of Directors. 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.
