In music, the ‘coda’ is the concluding passage of a piece or movement. At Coda to Coda, we design sound from end to end. That means consultancy and curation. Production and engineering. Original compositions and full-scale audio design. Our work encompasses soundtracks, installations, recordings, and spans the worlds of art, gaming, fashion, TV, and film.
We believe that sound should be the starting point, not an afterthought - it’s an essential part of the design process that brings value and speaks to audiences intuitively. Filmmakers have long used original scores to heighten the emotional power and impact of cinema. We believe this experience can - and should - translate to every medium.
From our fully-equipped London studio, we work with our clients to create multifaceted audio experiences that enhance every step of the listener’s journey. We’ve produced soundscapes for some of the world’s biggest brands and institutions, in locations from New York to Hong Kong (and won a number of awards in the process). You can find out more about our past and ongoing projects here.
Whether you’re looking for a custom audio installation, creative sound design for an exhibition, or an original soundtrack for a film - you’ve come to the right place. We’d love to work with you.

We’re located in Hoxton, London. Our HQ houses four dedicated recording studios, each designed to the very highest spec.
As composers fluent in both acoustic and electronic music, we’re able to create distinctive, evocative scores for every kind of brief. Our studios have a unique range of acoustic and electronic instruments, multi-track recording facilities, and a wide selection of microphones. A dedicated voice-over suite accommodates up to four voice actors and our engineers are experienced in supporting direction for anything from animation to radio to adverts.
We're internationally recognised and awarded for creating evocative sound worlds that integrate seamlessly into wider narratives and experiences. From concept, to acoustic design, to creating bespoke multi-speaker installations and specifying audio hardware systems, we can help you define a scope for sound on projects of all sizes.
We offer an integrated audio and post production service. We have a vast sound library, and expertise in foley recording and complex track-lay work, sound design, audio restoration and mixing. We deliver broadcast standard mixes in stereo, 5.1 surround, 7.1 surround, and beyond.
Our core team works out of our London studio, but we regularly collaborate with a network of award-winning composers, sound designers, programmers, and engineers across the UK. Coda To Coda is committed to promoting diversity across the sound and music industries. If you are a BIPOC engineer, composer, or programmer seeking new opportunities, please contact us so we can keep you in mind for future projects.
