Tasos Frantzolas grew up in Athens, Greece and began producing music at the age of thirteen. After attending SAE London for Audio Engineering, he enjoyed a brief stint in the UK’s music and post-production industries. His work during this time included collaborations with reggae legends Horace Andy and Michael Rose, as well as sound design work for the BBC. He then went on to obtain his MA in Music Production & Music Business from the University of Westminster.
In 2006, he returned to Greece to found Soundsnap.com, a sound effects and loop library that has since grown to encompass over one million users and become the most popular sound effects destination worldwide.
Soundsnap serves clients such as HBO, Apple, NASA, Konami, Microsoft and Pixar. Its professional content contributors include leading Hollywood sound professionals such as Coll Anderson (Black Swan, Melancholia) and Frank Serafine, the academy award-winning sound designer behind the sound of Star Trek, Tron and The Hunt for Red October.
Tasos’s business philosophy focuses on the harmony of art and hi-tech, using cutting edge software to enable creativity. He periodically visits New York University as a guest lecturer.
