Today, Soundtrack is involved with every form of audio production.
In 2013, his colleague, Tommy Fleischman won the Academy Award’s Best Audio Mix for his work on Scorcese’s "Hugo". Other clients include Ken Burns (“The Roosevelts”, “The Vietnam War”), Michael Moore (“Where To Invade Next”), and the ABC TV Series “Quantico”.
