A few examples of how we work:

We used St.Paul's Cathedral as a huge echo-chamber for the StPaul's Cathedral "Oculus" Exhibition.

We tormented the accelerator and engine on Lewis Hamilton's F1 car at McLaren HQ to create melodies for McLaren in partnership with S.A.P.

We used an old onion as a maraca for Subway's Eat Fresh Campaign.

Important creative audio decisions on a project  shouldn't be left to a facility that charges by the hour.  

We charge on a per-project basis. This gives you freedom to hone the audio without staring at the clock.
