I'm a professional Audio Producer, Sound Designer and Writer of 17 years standing. Growing up with a keen interest in radio, I attended University in Bournemouth, under Sean Street - the UK's first Professor of Radio. On leaving University, having completed several stints presenting and producing for Bournemouth's student radio station, I joined Arts Communication and Technology in London, makers of the Gallery Guide, the world's first CD-ROM based audio tour system.
In my early career, I learned the ropes as a recording engineer, recording and editing voiceovers for many different clients such as The Louvre, The National Gallery in London, Edinburgh Castle, and The Royal Academy of Arts. As the business grew and ACT became Antenna Audio, my creative influence on productions developed and I began to work closely with clients including The Royal Collection, for the State Opening of Buckingham Palace between 2003 and 2009. During this time I also assumed the role of Studio Manager and took on responsibility for my own team of Sound Designers, and began work on multimedia projects for screen-based devices like the iPod Touch for clients such as Tate Modern.
In early 2010 I made the decision to start my own production business, Paul Ford Sound, taking the knowledge and skills gained in the past decade to new clients and new markets.
