I am David Rusitschka, an award winning sound designer and sound editor.

I develop auditive concepts, design custom sound and create unique audio experiences. I'm working in the field of audio for over 20 years. Since 2009 I specialize in sound design and sound editing for film and tv.

Holding a Sound Studies M.A. of the University of the Arts Berlin (UdK) my work benefits from my scientifical knowledge on the perception and impact of the physical phenomenon sound.

In 2014 I was part of the sound team winning the "Goldener Bobby" Award (VdT, Germany) with "Northmen - A Viking Saga".

I have also been a professional drum and bass producer for many years (see discography) and originally started off as an MC in the late 80's putting berlin on the map with a crew called Cheeba Garden.

My current work is based on vast experiences with audio-visual media, spatial sound-installations and scientific studies of sound.

Have an interesting project to collaborate on? Just let me know. hello@david-rusitschka.com
