My name is Serge Espitia, I’m an audio engineer based out of the East Coast. I moved to the United States in 2007 (I’m originally from Mexico City). Two years later, I graduated from Boston University’s Center for Digital Imaging Arts where I earned a certificate in Music Production and Audio Engineering. During my time at CDIA, I worked at Boston’s prestigious Blue Jay Recording and Cybersound Studios.
Later that same year, I moved to New York City and immediately started collaborating with some of New York’s most renowned recording studios including East Side Sound and Stratosphere Sound. Throughout my time at Stratosphere Sound, I immersed myself in music by working for notable musicians and Stratosphere owners James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins), Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne), and Andy Chase (Ivy). I also had the opportunity to work for and assist some of the world’s most sought after producers and engineers such as Tony Visconti (David Bowie, TRex), Rudyard Lee Cullers (Ryan Adams, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), and Ian Dench (Epic Records EMF).
In 2011, I decided to start my own studio and that’s how Tiny Thunder Audio came to be. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to provide audio services to clients from all over the world such as Sean C & LV (Jay Z, Linkin Park), Branko (Buraka Som Sistema), Jahdan Blakkamoore (Snoop Dogg), and James Atkin (EMF) to name a few. My post-production experience includes collaborations with companies like Tidepool Films (The Best Bar in America) and Nissan. I have also been involved in theme productions for Broadway’s “Gazillion Bubble Show” (yup a bubble show) as well as for the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) (“Hockey Bird” was the 2012 World Championship’s official theme).
I’m an aquarius, a vinyl record collector and I have a weak spot for carbs. When I’m not in the studio I like to go on long walks with my dog Iggy Pop. But most importantly, I always want to hear from people like you and chat about how to make a great record together, so send me an email and let’s get a conversation going!
