About Me

Robert Hornbostel is a sound designer, audio/visual technician, and theatrical technical hacker based out of Chicago, IL. 

Robert specializes in creating immersive and detail oriented Sound Design, in reaction to his surroundings, representative of the world and scope of a given production. Sound Design is more than Doorbells and Dog barks, it is a chance to connect an audience to a world unseen; from a fundamental level of involvement in the storytelling of a piece. Robert strives to work with interesting people in a collaborative sense to tell unique and specific story that effects the audience on a deep level of understanding.
