After many years forging his creative production craft at radio stations throughout the metropolitan area (WRNW, WTFM, WAPP), in 1985, Bruce Figler purchased a pair of analog tape recorders, a mixing board, a couple of microphones, and a pair of speakers…and thus, Creative Sound Works was born. With the sole intent to create innovative and effective radio commercials, a studio was set up in a room on the ground floor of his home (now his son’s bedroom). It wasn’t long before the company grew out of its digs, moving first to Hawthorne, NY and then to our current home in Pleasantville, NY.
Creative Sound Works has come a long way since its auspicious beginnings. For example, despite our name, we are no longer just audio. Although we started out that way and still have a special place in our hearts for audio, we also create in film and video, allowing for a unique continuity between the different mediums. Catering to businesses both big and small, we are equally ‘at home’ servicing local retailers, as we are servicing Fortune 500 companies. (See our client list)
Over our 20+ years of operation, we have learned that we’re only as good as the people who work for us. As a result, we have put together a tight confederation of gifted creative people who all add to the finished project. A talented team of copywriters, actors, narrators, technicians, composers and musicians all combine to make Creative Sound Works, the full service creative facility that it has become.
