Cover Letter


I wish to submit my resume for a position of 'Lead Audio Designer' in your company.

I am a Game Audio Designer / Music Composer - Producer from Mumbai, India.

I have more than 8 years experience in Music production and am quite independent in my approach towards music making.

While working as an Audio lead in an Indian gaming company, I produced quality audio for various gaming platforms. This boosted my efficiency in Game music production. I am now more excited about this job and looking for bigger and better challenges.

I love playing games, so I am naturally inspired to create Audio for games.

Be it a small but detailed Sound FX or a major Intro music theme - I am equally enthusiastic about producing every Audio asset and refine it till it is positively contributing to an overall game experience.

My key skills - Audio Production - Music, Sound FX, Foley.Sound Recording & Mixing.Audio Mastering.

I am open to work under various employment modes like Full-time, Contract, Freelancing, etc.

I assure that I would cohesively merge within a group and work with teams smoothly. I am a fast learner.

I believe one ought not have 'Million dollar studio' to produce good Audio. Knowing your talent and gear is the key!

Regards,Shrivats Kulkarni.
