In 2012 a wonderful thing happened in the trailer and promo world. One of the busiest theatrical editors/musicians and one of the most respected Hollywood Recording Engineers came together and created Accidental Sound. The trailer and promo gods smiled down and blessed this creative union and the two young men have gone forth and produced unearthly sound designs.
Johnny O’Neil, editor and longtime musician, and Albert Mata, recording engineer extraordinaire, continue to create the best, most original sound design available today. Knowing from their own experiences what was needed by their fellow editors they went into the studio and using live instruments, their computer skills and imagination they created a versatile array of sound designs. Thus proving the old adage “If you want something done right, sometimes you just gotta do it yourself” to be be true. These two editors and engineers have given their fellow brethren an invaluable tool to help make their trailers and promos sparkle and shine!
