Meet Joe Basile - Field Audio Specialist and Music Composer
Joe Basille: Audio engineer Joe Basille still vividly remembers the green sheet of paper his teacher handed him when he was 10 years old. It held a list of instruments he could learn to play ...and the first steps of the path that would lead him to Horizon.
The enterprising Cary 4th grader chose the saxaphone - and found a lifelong love for music. Being a generally brainy guy, Joe also had an interest in computers, so he struck
harmony between the two vocations with a degree in Commercial and Electronic Music
from Western Carolina University.
Today, Joe plays multiple instruments, and composes & arranges music in just about any style imaginable - for films, commercials and corporate videos. His musical inclinations also show up in his free time – he collects vintage keyboards from the 80’s and 90’s, and one day hopes to produce an album.
For now, Joe has set his sights on mixing amazing soundtracks for Horizon clients, and taking a deep dive into the world of virtual reality: pairing VR’s immersive visuals with equally convincing 3D sound.
It’s Joe’s creativity and commitment to client service that struck a chord with Horizon – and we couldn’t be happier to have him on our team!
