Sound + music for media.

Why do we value creativity? Because creative practice solves problems that have no clear solution. Media storytellers know that great music and sound sends a message, builds identity, and creates value. You want audio crafted by someone who gets what you have to say, shares your passion, and brings something unique to the table. That’s what we’re here for.

From voiceover recording to sound edit/ design, Foley, audio restoration, custom music, ADR and final mix, Cool Cat Audio offers comprehensive sound services to storytellers in all media. The studio is helmed by Mike Hallenbeck, a sound designer and composer known for his work in film, animation, branding, industrials, games, and apps. Hallenbeck thrives on collaboration, and welcomes the opportunity to share the excitement of audio that inspires and communicates.


End clients like Target, AT&T, 3M, the Minnesota Timberwolves, and United Health Group have all benefited from Hallenbeck’s audio services. Films featuring his sound edit, musical scores and mixes have won accolades in festivals around the world. You might have heard his original music composition on the Cartoon Network, NBC, BBC, and many European channels. He's composed for production music libraries like Primary (dist. APM/ EMI Play) and the Twin Cities’ Asche & Spencer.
