Duo behind music on Officeworks and Seek campaigns launch Otis Studios

Lukas Farry and Alejandro Gomez, the sound designer and composer behind Officeworks’ latest campaign ‘A Small Story,’ and Seek’s ‘Why Settle?’ have launched their own business.

The new agency, Otis Studios, is a post-production and original music composition studio in Pyrmont, Sydney.

The duo have more than 30 years’ experience working across music production, sound design, sound post and music composition for media across advertising, film, and TV.

Prior to creating the studio,  Gomez and Farry worked on brands such as Pepsi, Aldi, NRMA, Toyota and Tiger Beer.

They are also winners of a Bronze Pencil at Award for best music score, and best original music for an advertisement for their work with Steinlager Beer. 

Gomez was most recently a composer and music producer at Sonar Music for three years, while Farry was a music director and sound designer of Sound Reservoir for almost seven years.

Otis Studios will run as a commercial studio which also services as a music label, known as Sobriquet.

Farry said the new studio had been an ambition for the duo since the beginning of their friendship.

“We met while working together almost 10 years ago and quickly struck up a friendship based around our love of music production,” Farry said.

“This relationship has made it easy for us to collaborate and starting Otis has been an ambition of ours since the very beginning.”

Commenting on the launch, Gomez said: “We hail from opposite parts of the globe – Colombia and New Zealand – and our music is reflective of this difference in experience and culture. Our common ground is that we both have knowledge and experience in music composition and sound design.

“Having an understanding of both disciplines means we can seamlessly work and support each other in all our work.”
