The portrait of audio postproduction in Montreal has changed since the founding of Sonomar in 1994. Several companies with which Sonomar has worked throughout the 2000s no longer exist or have been acquired by other businesses. Sonolab, Covitec, Audio-Télépoint, Studio Concept, Productions sonores Innovation, les Productions Modulations, Cinar Sound Studios and Studios Marko have fallen wayside and in doing so passed the torch to larger companies such as Technicolor or Canada's largest business of cinema and television services: Global Vision. Through the years, other local companies also adapted with good results, such as Audio FX, Premium Sound and Audio Zone. Sonomar collaborates with all these active local sound postproduction facilities.

Emerging from these past experiences and in the periphery of these companies is a network of independent sound editors, designers, Foley artist, recordists and re-recording mixers, that are introducing new tactics and practices. Employees change employer or employment status, just as companies change hands, but the core group of sound designers, editors, mixers, and Foley artists who have worked together on the various projects over the years has remained substantially the same. The bonds of friendship, trust, and professional collaboration that exist between the group prevail through time and transcend organizational permutations. Teams are formed based on creative needs, not necessarily on corporate allegiances.

MISSION
  • To enhance the collaboration and long-term partnerships with many people of diverse talents and expertise working either independently or within sound production houses.
  • To Improve communication and exchange between the different partners.
  • To Adapt working methods by focusing on teleworking to reduce operating costs.
  • To provide a range of studio formats addressing needs from sound editing to 5.1 theatrical mixing with according to the desires and needs of our clientele.
  • To keep the quality of the sound at its maximum at each step while bringing an original quality and richness despite all the constraints that stand before us.

These are the long term commitments that we put into any sound project. We invite other sound designers or sound services company to contact us directly with any service requests; Sonomar encourages creative partnerships. The choice is yours in determining the framework and formation of our future collaborations. Here are Sonomar's long term creative sound collaborators:
