Glenn Forsythe is a composer, sound designer, engineer and producer who works in a wide range of post production, interactive and multimedia projects. His sound work encompasses a wide spectrum of acoustic and electronic music, soundscapes and effects fitted for video, film, and multimedia applications.

Having started as a sound designer and editor for audio podcasts, the rapid rise of the smartphone market gave way for a need of more video content. This necessitated skills in all forms of post production, including video editing. This became a central skill while spending years producing audio and video content for smartphone and tablet applications for interactive tours of cities, museums and parks with the award winning production company Audissey Media. Down the road, switching production hats has found Glenn working for ABC as an assistant video editor.

Having studied audio engineering and electronic production and design at Berklee College of Music, Glenn has produced and engineered bands and artists while always composing and creating sound in a multitude of styles. Over the course of his study at Berklee, he has been the recipient of numerous awards and departmental recognitions, including the electronic production and design department's Robert Moog award. Much of his work was also featured in Berklee's music technology departmental collection, including original composition, production and engineering work.
