Defacto Sound Moves from Dallas into 1,300 SF at the World Building
Defacto Sound has set up shop in a new Silver Spring office after moving from Dallas to better serve its core local clients.
Defacto Sound will occupy 1,300 square feet at 8121 Georgia Ave., which is known as the World Building.
Scheer Partners Vice President Matt Brady represented Defacto Sound, which provides sound design, editing and mixing for a range of entertainment products, including documentaries, political-campaign advertisements, short films, television shows and video games.
More than five years ago, Dallas Taylor founded Defacto Sound in a Maryland basement while he worked full time for Silver Spring-based Discovery Communications as a senior sound designer.
Defacto Sound initially opened its first office in Texas three years ago, but, as its client base continued to grow in the D.C. market, the company decided to move back to the East Coast.
The company looked at options in Washington, but it chose the more cost-effective Silver Spring, in part, because Defacto Sound does a lot of work with Discovery Communications, whose headquarters is nearby.
While Defacto Sound brought much of its high-tech equipment from Texas, it did purchase modern furniture for its designed space here, which features several individual sound studios as well as a fully stocked beverage and snack “wall” containing all kinds of goodies for clients and staff to enjoy.
Defacto Sound currently has a staff of three sound designers and one producer, and it may hire additional sound designers in the near future.
