Testimonial

"As I director I'd taken care on how the image had been captured and I needed an equally strong sound track to compliment the visual and that's where Barry came in. It was a pleasure to work with another creative mind as committed to the project as I was and who could interpret my thoughts on what 'Eyes in the Dark' should sound like. It really is great pleasure to work with a great composer and sound designer such as Barry and look forward to future projects together."

Alex White, Director, Eyes In The Dark

Bio

About us


Barry Ryerson

Ryerson Sound Solutions is a family business run by mixer, composer and sound designer Barry Ryerson. We have been creating music and working on sound for film for over 15 years and have recorded, composed, performed, edited and designed sound and music for a wide variety of clients over that time.

We have had a few years away for personal reasons but are getting back into making projects sound awesome.

Education
Barry started late at learning music. At age 15 he decided to take up piano lessons for the first time, yet 7 months later he passed his Grade 5 exam. Subsequently he has achieved Grade 8 Piano, Grade 8 Theory, Grade 6 Jazz Saxophone and Grade 5 Viola.

The viola opened up opportunities to play in several orchestras whilst studying Music at Southampton University. He studied composition at post-graduate level and travelled to Los Angeles to study orchestration with Scott Smalley. He is also an Avid Certified Instructor in Pro Tools.

performance
Barry has performed with a wide variety of groups, from jazz bands to classical orchestras to Japanese Taiko. These performances have taken him to exotic places and met exciting people, from local Devon-based fairs to performing on Blue Peter at the Royal Albert Hall and at Disneyland Paris for Novell as part of Kagemusha Taiko.
experience
As well as working on a wide variety of projects over the years, Barry has gained a lot of experience through his teaching. Currently also working as a course leader for an FdA Music Production course at University Centre Somerset, Barry has recorded bands, composed for orchestras, created synths, and been involved in pretty much every aspect of the music industry.
what else?
Aside from the usual musical qualifications, Barry is also a black belt in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu and holds a Private Pilot's Licence!
