My Five W's: Who

My name is Maikel van der Wouden

 I’m a born-and-raised dutch boy from Amsterdam with a strong passion for sound. I’m proud to have created my own sound agency and a proven method to exploit the power of audio to manage your Brand’s identity through sound. 

I started my business four and a half years ago with Phoebe Ohayon. Today we got a dedicated team of seven and a worldwide network of sound designers and voice talents including licensing partnerships with more than 75 music labels.  

I started my career studying at the conservatory, and before starting my own business, I was an audio engineer. I spent a lot of time researching acoustics, sound and speech characteristics, and audible perception.

After, I started working in traditional studios for several years, but all the commercial productions I worked on did not include any research or strategy at all. I realized that my curiosity and unusual combination of interests and skills were a rare strength.
