A lot of studios have good gear. And a lot of studios can track your music. But the rubber hits the road when it comes to mixing. That’s why bands from as far away as Portland, Austin, and Dallas send their tracks to the Amusement Park. Our mixes don’t sound local. They sound national. Got a heavy vibe? We know how to create a crushing mix where the kick, snare and guitars blow your mind. Prefer acoustic music? Our mixes are open, clear and rich with air on top and a solid bottom end that grabs your soul. But don’t take our word for it. Listen.
Scott and his wife, composer and pianist Amy Faris, also compose music for film and TV. Their works Metropolis Elektro and Between earth and Sky (the later film was nominated for a Lonestar Emmy).
