Who Is The Chicken?

The Chicken is the music and sound design work of Joe Basile. Since 2009 he's worked as an in-house composer, field audio engineer, and freelance music composer. He's created countless soundtracks for the world's biggest brands. Joe's approach is a merge of the acoustic and the electronic. He has a studio full of modern and vintage synthesizers, guitars, wind instruments, and percussion. Joe is also very passionate about teaching others about music, sound design, and audio engineering. He has taught both privately, and on collegiate level. Apart from cooking up the next corporate banger, Joe enjoys riding his bike, and spending time with his wife, cat, and dog.
