Barry Schwam: Proprietor
I do some of the best sound work around, anywhere, for
a friendly price.
An award-winning sound designer, musician, actor, I have been
doing sound design for theaters and independent films for almost 20 years. I have also self- produced 14 of my
own music/poetry CDs, which sell all over the world. My recording name is "Schwump." Perhaps you've heard of me?
Most recently, I have expanded to, and have begun to specialize
in poetry CDs.
I record poets in live settings, or at my home studio near
Pasadena, CA and can take your poems to a new level. Think of it as taking a great work of art on canvas, (your poem)
and adding the touch of just the right "frame" to bring it alive!! That is what my sound work can do for your
poems. On a typical poetry CD a reading of many poems in a row by the same poet can get repetitious to the
listener. . But I can take each one of your poems, and, being a poet myself, find the right sound or sound scape or
music, and "make it pop" to a height you never imaged! Check out some of the samples on the next webpage.
And, depending to what extent you want your poems "enhanced" I will go to work and take each poem
individually. I listen, listen, and listen some more. I get a "feel" for the type of poem it is, and what you
are trying to say. I will work with that poem until we are both satisfied, or time/money enough has been
spent. (One can strive for perfection, but there is life to live)
