“David Kamp created sound designs for multiple projects for us here at Google, each time we were very impressed with the unique results and smooth collaboration process.”

Animation World Magazine

"You’d be hard pressed to find a recent indie animation short or commissioned work that doesn’t feature David Kamp’s name in the credits. From Nikita Diakur’s Ugly, Nicholas Ménard’s Wednesday with Goddard, David OReilly’s Please Say Something to commissioned projects for Ted-Ed, The New York Times and other organizations I’ve no desire to plug without full compensation, Kamp’s soundscapes are distinct."

"In animated films, the key task of sound design is to bring abstract images to life and to find convincing soundscapes for the frequently fantastic worlds, even and especially if they have no connection to everyday reality. David Kamp manages this in an impressive manner. His soundscapes open up the cinematic space beyond the framework of the screen, entirely in the spirit of Béla Balázs, who noted: The possibility afforded by sound films to hear the space without having to see it, the ability to regard the most intimate close-up and simultaneously hear the entire breadth of the huge space, offers contrapuntal potential which has seldom been exploited in cinema and hardly ever to full effect."

Nexus Studios

"David Kamp was brilliant. He created a cinematic soundscape that really helps make these flat, book-like compositions come to life."

"Excellent partnership, a perfect combination of creative flexibility and professional service."

Chromosphere

"You know how when you have an idea for something in your mind, and it seems like it'll be so epic and beautiful, but then you start drawing and you're just constantly disappointed?  And so you contact a musician to try and dig that original inspiration out of your crummy drawings and turn it into the great thing you were imagining? That's what David does. Every single time."

Kevin Dart / Animation Director & Founder / Chromosphere

The New York Times

“I worked with David Kamp on an Exhibition for the Smithsonian Museum. Working with him was a delightful, elevated, collaborative experience.”

Kelly Doe / Design Director / The New York Times

Studio AKA

“Studio AKA first worked with David in 2011. We’ve since been able to secure his collaboration on two more projects. He has an amazing mastery of his craft and is able to realize his works with a fluidity and expressiveness that feels highly intuitive."

Philip Hunt / Co-Owner & Director / Studio AKA

"Working with David Kamp was such a pleasure. His attention to sound detail is really remarkable, I'd love the chance to work with him again."
