SOUND IS LISTENING
Diplomacy Music is Daniel Brunelle
I'm a composer, sound designer and audio engineer for games, film, and podcasts from Chicago, IL.
I live to get lost in the project. For me, creativity is about losing yourself in your work. Creativity is the love for the process.
In 2016 I joined Scientific Games where I create music and sound effects for 10 to 15 games a year. I've had the privilege of working on some large properties like Star Trek and James Bond. I also work frequently with Gimlet Media/Spotify in Brooklyn, New York. Podcasts include the score for SANDRA (2018) starring Kristen Wiig, Ethan Hawke, and Alia Shawkat and sound design for The Two Princes (2019) of which AV Club said "its performances, sound design, and irrepressible heart make for a winning experience."
I started my career with the band Gemini Club who signed with Red Bull, played the festival circuit including Hangout and Lollapalooza (2014), and racked up millions of plays on YouTube and Spotify. At the same time I was working for Chicago Recording Company's in-house music production team OneSun Entertainment where I composed music for brands including Maytag and Secret as well as producing pop and hip hop records for the OneSun stable of artists culminating in #3 single on Radio Disney "What Can I Say" by Sheleigh (2012). Later, I joined the team at JIRA under Ira Antelis and Jim Hoffman composing for brands such as Kellogg's and Beef. I also produced and performed in the band MONAKR with grammy nominated signer Matthew Santos.

Dan is the rare breed who possesses the instincts and hyper creativity of the most relevant artist-producers, but also understands the grind, nuance and collaboration required to appease all the subjective demands of making great music for marketing.
