About BtOVEN

btoven artworkBtoven Music is turning 6-years-old next month and we’ll close out our 5th year with a big ‘BANG’ by partnering with our friends at NYC’s Winter Film Awards (it’s finally time to lose our baby teeth, yay!!).

Btoven Music is a cutting-edge music and audio production facility located on the border of Manhattan’s Columbus Circle and Hell’s Kitchen. Founded in 2009 by composer/producer Brian McKenna, Btoven Music’s services include: Original Music Composition/Production; Voiceover Production; Music Mixing; Post-Production Mixing; Sound Design. In an age where personal attention is rare and vast music conglomerates have all but suffocated the craft of custom music, Btoven’s goal is to keep it real and guarantee the intimacy of a boutique operation for all of our clients.

The dedicated producers, engineers and artists at Btoven Music cater to clients in Film, TV, Advertising, Records, Video Games and New Media. We don’t stop grinding until the job is done and hearts are won. Work produced and performed by our world-renowned camp has been broadcast globally in various forms of media, winning major awards and critical acclaim. Credits Include:

“[Btoven Music is] a sweet recording studio on W. 55th Street. There is a wealth of resources in the studio, a vast library in a myriad styles available for licensing. Brian uploaded the music via his Btoven Music server. Done! I’d work with Brian at any opportunity.”
— Martha Pinson (Director: “Tomorrow” [2015]; Script Supervisor “The Aviator,” “The Departed,” “Hugo”)

“Brian’s production and communication skills [plus] his dedication to and passion for music production bring a unique and inspirational energy to projects, making him a pleasure to work with.”
— Strauss Zelnick (Zelnick Media, Rockstar Video Games, Take 2 Interactive)

“In recent years I have recommended [Btoven Music] to artists and major industry developers such as EA Games. I have always received glowing reviews regarding not only the creativity of Btoven Music’s work, but also of the studio’s meticulous attention to detail and ability to conform to deadlines. Unlike other production houses I have worked with, Btoven Music has consistently shown a capacity for meeting or exceeding expectations.”
— Ryan Lewis, Esq. (Entertainment Attorney)

“I’d like to give a serious recommendation for Brian McKenna as a composer/producer…I first heard his work when he was still at school but had produced a record which he sent me. What impressed me the most was the drumming, which I later learned he had done himself. To me the essence of good music is the rhythm and that was what his drumming gave that particular record.”
— Galt MacDermot (Composer, “Hair” The Musical)
