The Scoring Lab

Santa Monica, California


With his new facility in the arts and tech hub of Santa Monica, composer Benjamin Wallfisch has taken complete control of the creative film music process, from initial composition to the mix.


The two-room facility includes his personal writing room, where he will continue to compose scores such as he did for films like Shazam!, Hellboy, Bladerunner: 2049 (with Hans Zimmer) and Hidden Figures (with Hans Zimmer and Pharrell Williams). The new film music composition facility also includes The Mix Lab, a Dolby-certified ATMOS mix room. One of the first commercially available mix rooms of this caliber in existence, the ATMOS room is entirely equipped with ATC speakers.


An ADR/overdub booth, accessible from both main rooms, further expands the possibilities and features a wide range of microphones and pre-amps.


The facility takes advantage of a classic bow-truss warehouse space, which was then meticulously designed and built out to combine its industrial vibe with a more refined European style. Besides the generous mirrored main lounge on the ground floor, it also offers a kitchen and private workspace on the mezzanine.
