About Us

Catgut Sound is not just your typical sound recording company. We are a team of artists and music-minded folks specializing in crafting pristine audio for film, television, commercials, documentaries, and cutting-edge immersive sound projects. Under the seasoned leadership of Chris Welcker, who brings over two decades of audio production mastery, we've honed our craft on an array of projects, from blockbuster feature films with budgets in the hundreds of millions to micro-budget indie endeavors driven by passion.


Sound recording, while seemingly straightforward, is an art form we respect for its subtleties and power to transform storytelling. We pride ourselves on our meticulous attention to detail, ensuring that every note, whisper, and roar is captured with the depth and clarity it deserves. Our philosophy goes beyond cables and microphones; we believe in the beauty of sound and its ability to bring narratives to life.


Professionalism is at the heart of everything we do at. From the initial consultation to the final playback, our team guarantees a seamless, positive experience. We are well-versed in the technicalities of production sound, yet our approach is always human-centric. We understand that our industry thrives on relationships — that's why we're committed to building lasting connections with our clients, fostering an environment of trust and collaboration that keeps them returning, project after project.


No project is too grand or modest for our expertise. We recognize the significance of your vision and are dedicated to delivering an auditory experience that elevates your project, ensuring it resonates with audiences as intended.




A native of New Orleans and former jazz saxophonist, Chris Welcker's journey into sound is a blend of diverse experiences. Originally diving into Jazz Studies, Chris found his true calling at the intersection of musical performance, visual arts and electronic media. This unique blend of passions paved his way into the world of commercial scoring, subsequently opening the doors to the feature film and television industry.

Chris worked his way up from Utility Sound Technician to Boom Operator on notable projects under the leadership of several top sound mixers in the industry, each role enriching his understanding and craftsmanship in sound. Mentored by the esteemed Oscar Winning Kirk Francis, Chris transitioned to a Production Sound Mixer with his debut on the Key & Peele comedy feature, "Keanu". His deep-rooted love for music then led him to work on the Mötley Crüe biopic "The Dirt" and later "Bill and Ted Face The Music", revisiting the melodies of his childhood.

His rich musical background and varied project experience culminated in his role as production sound mixer for "Daisy Jones & The Six", an Amazon Prime and Hello Sunshine Series. This project not only won Chris an Emmy for Outstanding Sound Mixing but also earned him a Cinema Audio Society Award Nomination for the series finale. His work on the series was not just a technical feat but a testament to his ability to lead a team of diverse, creative and thoughtful sound professionals.

Looking forward, Chris continues to be driven by his passion for music and technology seeking out projects that challenge him to blend his creativity with the evolving art of sound mixing. His journey, rooted in music and visual storytelling, continues to resonate through every project he touches.
