Considerate Audio for Film, Apps, Amusement Industry, Audiobooks, and More
Mike Flannery sound designed ‘No Alternative,’ and for a movie that is all about sound, I could not have asked for a better designer. If you want good sound, don’t go to Mike—he will only give you GREAT sound, and he’ll give it to you every time.
Mike Flannery is a cataract of creative energy, a polymath artist who is at once prodigious creator and nurturer of others’ best creative selves. As a sound designer, he brings a wide palette of experience—not least of which is his extensive, multi-instrumental musicianship—to the art of making an image come alive aurally. His trenchant understanding of sound as a stanchion of the visual bring every project he undertakes to a new level. Mike is a pleasure to work with. Work with him now before you can’t afford him anymore!
Barefoot Books has trusted Mike Flannery to create the music for a number of our best-selling singalong picture books. Mike consistently delivers music that is fun, high-energy and catchy, and also created with the high quality and attention to detail we expect in our products. He has a great ear for creating engaging, genuine children’s media that kids want to hear again and again and again.
I’ve known Mike coming on 20 years—not only is he a virtuoso with almost any instrument—he is great to work either with or for! He is invaluable as a team member on my films AND as a musician in my musical endeavors! Work with him once, work with him for life!
My musical career is what it is because of Mike Flannery, and he’s the first on my list when I meet someone who has a handful of songs but no idea what to do with them. I know that in his very capable hands, they’ll not only get tracked professionally, but come out a thousand times better than anyone thought they could be.
I’ve been roping Mike into helping me with recordings for weird artsy projects for around a decade, and if there’s anything I can say about him aside from how patient, efficient, and gung-ho he can be, it’s that he’s weirdly able to translate, “what I want is this”, and do so correctly. He actually listens, which is his job, and he’s really pretty surprisingly good at it.
