“Music and sound design are essential to elevating a film project and Jason Hausman is masterful at both. He always brings his “A” game – keen sensitivity to the subject matter and the highest level of creativity. Then, he tops it off with enthusiasm, kindness and an unfailing cheerful demeanor.”

— Beverly Penninger - NAKA Productions

“We’ve gone to Jason for many years on projects to help shape audio design and music enhancement for our fans at Hornets games. The results are always high-quality and Jason’s passion, commitment, and expertise is second to none.”

— Josh Kramer, Senior Vice President - Hornets Sports & Entertainment

“We always get excited when Jason gets to add sound design and music to our animations. Jason is the man to talk to when you want custom fitted sound for your project. Nothing about his process is cookie-cutter, everything is driven by heart and personal attention to detail.”

— Nathaniel Howe, Creative Director - Nathaniel Howe Studios

“An admired colleague and a creative genius – Jason brings a sensitivity to the process that takes everything to a whole new level.”

— Ron Edelen, Chief Creative Officer - Myjive

“Hausman is passionate about music and sound. He has the gift to create as a composer and the ability to mix as a post audio engineer. More importantly, he has the determination to take the time to get it just right which makes him rare…and special.”

— Scott Galloway, Director - Susie Films

“Jason conjures beauty for the ears every time he embarks on a project. I am constantly amazed at how he brings my work to life. A consummate professional, he is always having a good day and always striving for excellence and beyond.”

— Thom Blackburn, Creative Director - Wondersmith

“Jason attacks every project with an open mind and a fresh perspective. I’ve watched him create symphonies out of the mundane sounds of coffee grinders and frying bacon. When I want great, he’s who I call. He’d jump through glass for his clients – ONLY, of course, if the glass sounds amazing.”

— John Roberts, VP Executive Creative Director - Wray Ward

One of my hero’s. One of the great voices to walk this earth. So glad I got to see him live at The Brewery in Raleigh, and more so that I got to spend a little time talking life and music with him. He was as gracious as he was gifted. We lost him not long after... 22 years ago today. One of our brightest lights went out. #jeffbuckley

I’d like to welcome Queens University piano student Emma Freas to Hot Sakē for her summer internship. We are already having a blast! She is a very talented pianist, so plans are to get her playing on some upcoming projects. @emmafreas @queensuniv #studiolife #composer #producer #filmscore #commercialmusic #sounddesign

Here we have the newest Played By Hausman! For this one, @cltiscreative had me head over to one of their favorite printers, Boingo Graphics! Boingo has one of the coolest print shops in the area and they knew this was going to be a great fit for this video series. Although Boingo has some the most advanced printing technology around, Cinematographer Ben Premeaux could not pull his camera away from all the vintage/historic print machines that they still maintain. The visuals, with all the older moving parts, are what make this video come alive! Chosen for the soloist for this piece is CPCC Professor of Music Matt Postle on Trumpet. ALL other “instruments" in this composition are sounds from the Boingo Graphics shop. Composed and performed by Jason Hausman at Hot Sakē Cinematography by Ben Premeaux Edited by Maverick Floyd Mixed at Groundcrew Sound Feat Artist: Matt Postle @pattmostle (CPCC Professor of Music) - Trumpet Just a few of the sounds used: Stitchers Shuffled Paper Stacks Warning Buzzer (turned into a bass synth sound) Gears Levers Paper Cutter And so much more @afewminertweaks @mattolincreative @boingographics @thesmartlab @sonic_samurai @groundcrew_sound @mavfloedits

A great week made better. Beers with my brother, John Roberts @cray.ward at @sycamorebrewing


sonic_samurai - April 22

What a way to start the week with some of my favorite people!! @merenator @mattolincreative and @afewminertweaks - a planned “short meeting” about our ongoing series Played By Hausman turned into gameshow antics on camera! Kudos to Tim Miner for knowing more about Disney characters than any grown man should. We would have been so embarrassed without him. And to Matt Olin for being able to pull off some great impromptu vocals on some Disney classics. Charlotte is indeed creative! Last but not least, my new friend, @merenator - so much joy, love and inspiration packed into one human being it is almost overwhelming. @ryanfoundation @levinechildrens and @thesmartlab @groundcrew_sound #cltiscreative #charlotteiscreative

One of my go-to sound design tools. The Butler Animal Health Supply pill bottle microphone. $5 and worth every penny! #meetsallusprequirements #microphone #miccheck #sounddesign #composer #studiolife #cheapmic @myfathersbrothers @theshawnk

Sometimes, after hitting, tapping, scraping, and bowing thousands of objects while collecting sounds for my compositions, I run across something that makes the most staggering and complex statement. This morning was one of those moments. Coming soon to Played By Hausman and @cltiscreative @thesmartlab @gab_fabulous #playedbyhausman #youvebeenplayed #cltiscreative #charlotteiscreative #studiolife #composer #sounddesign #producer

My love for my sons is beyond words. I was fortunate to have two young men who are also my best fiends. I am gonna miss this youngest dude when he rolls out to Montana State University to study film and photography in the Fall. I am thankful for all the time I have been able to spend with him, through falconry, soccer, travel and music. This weekend was incredible. Thanks to J. Cole and @dreamvillefest for bringing 40,000 people together in a park for a day of incredible music, peace and love. That moment when Cole asked 40k strangers to put their arms around each other and sway back and forth to his music will forever be burned in my brain. The future is now. #peace #hiphop #rap #dreamville #jcole @jidsv @earthgang @realcoleworld @scott_lazer @thesmartlab @elihausman @connorhausman
