Lyman Hardy

Stuck On On

"Winning a Celis beer jingle contest in 1999 launched Lyman’s commercial audio career. He used the proceeds to buy a Kurzweil 2000 and worked exclusively as an electronic composer and sound designer on campaigns such as Kinko’s, Nortel, State of Texas, Southwest Airlines, Golfsmith, Lollapolooza, Livestrong, Norwegian Cruise Lines and Ronald McDonald House.

In 2009, sound design and mixing became his primary focus as commercial custom music was replaced by stock music. Some feature highlights include Jeff Nichols’ Take Shelter (2011) and Mud (2012), The Miller Brothers’ All the Birds Have Flown South (2016) and Keith Maitland’s documentary TOWER (2016). He also mixed and SFX edited Richard Linklater’s Hulu series Up to Speed (2012) and Rooster Teeth’s award winning anime series RWBY (2013-2016), and remixed Red vs. Blue Seasons 1-10 (2012).

Current Bands: Drummer for party starters Pong and one of the masterminds behind the electronic maximalist multimedia extravaganza Total Unicorn.

Latest Obsession: Moog Sub 37. Be on the look out for his new remix for the band My Education."
