About Sound Recordist Henri Rapp

Production Sound Recordist Henri Rapp

I’m Henri Rapp, a production sound mixer & location sound recordist for commercials, TV series, & narrative films. Working as a production sound recordist in Pittsburgh is just a short 2 hours from my homebase in Cleveland. Ultimately I believe my job as a Sound Recordist is all about capturing performances; Whether that’s a documentary interview, comedian on stage, a musical performance, or actors in a narrative film…’s all about capturing those moments.

Having more than a decade of professional sound recording experience, I’ve worked on productions of nearly every style. Originally I started my audio career in a recording studio producing music & doing audio post; These experiences continually inform the way I approach recording sound to this day. Coupled with top tier gear, I provide production sound services you can count on no matter what your production needs!
