Emmy-winning Mixer & Sound Designer Ted Marcus Joins SuperExploder
New York-based audio house SuperExploder has hired Emmy-winning mixer/sound designer Ted Marcus. Ted has over 20 years of experience in audio post, spanning mixing, editing, sound design and music for broadcast promos, feature films and music-driven long form content. Ted’s work has earned many industry accolades, including numerous PromaxBDA Awards, New York Festivals, CTAM Mark Awards and Emmys. He sound designed the feature “Pitch,” which was accepted into the Cannes Film Festival as well as mixed the MTV documentary “Translating Genocide: Three Students Journey to Sudan,” which earned two Emmys and a Beacon Award.
Ted’s innate sense of rhythm derives from his lifelong experience as a musician. After over a decade as a professional audio engineer, Ted took his music skills to the next level collaborating with influential rock band the Meat Puppets. They brought him on as their drummer for their 2006 reunion and he spent four years writing, performing and touring with the band as well as recording two full-length albums.
Connecticut native Ted studied Psychology at the University of Connecticut but discovered his passion for all things audio when he fell into a gig at a local Public Access channel. He quickly made his way to NYC and started his career at National Recording Studios, working up the ranks from Assistant to Audio Engineer. He moved on to work as a Mixer/Sound Designer at Jeco Music/Stolen Car Productions and Clack Sound Studios, mixing top broadcast projects. In 2000, he brought his audio expertise to MTV’s On-Air Promos division, spearheading the development of their in-house audio facility. After over six years at MTV, Ted seized an opportunity to tour with the Meat Puppets, continuing to take on mix assignments during breaks. In 2010 Ted joined Ultrabland. Throughout his career, Ted has fostered a continually growing list of repeat clients, collaborating with HBO, Cinemax, FX, NatGeo and others on a wide range of award-winning spots.
