Red Hot Shots, Dive Tackling, Wall Running, Dragon Punches, over-the-top mid-air volleys - all chainable tricks in HoopWorld. HoopWorld is a three-on-three multiplayer trick game that rewards gamers for playing competitively together.

The studio is headed up by noted recording engineer and producer Tom Pearce, a longtime veteran in the music industry who has worked with legends including Elton John, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Jimmy Page, Beatles producer George Martin, and the London Symphony Orchestra.

Streamline Sound is fully integrated into Streamline Studios’ processes and services and its staff is ready to work seamlessly with game developers, animators, artists, video production, and web development teams. In addition, Pearce’s team is creating an online music and sound effects database from which clients will be able to select high quality, original content for their projects. The studio is capable of handling everything from Foley and voice over recording to surround sound mixing, sound design, and full music production, with real-time video post production integration also available.

“Our full-fledged Streamline Sound studio adds another key creative element to our suite of in-house service solutions,” said Alexander Fernandez, CEO of Streamline Studios. “In addition to delivering high quality visual content creation, the studio can now provide cutting edge audio solutions for our partners, with both studio services and an online audio database.”

“I’m looking forward to applying my expertise in the music industry to the videogame, film, and television industries,” said Tom Pearce, General Manager, Streamline Sound. “With Streamline Sound we can now offer our partners a high quality, affordable solution to the ever-rising cost of licensed music through custom music composition and creation.”

Pearce previously worked with many of the world’s best-known artists as a studio recording engineer and technician as well as composer and performing musician. He is a member of the Institute of Sound and Communications Engineers (M. Inst. S.C.E.) and has won numerous awards for his work including a Platinum disc for Elton John’s album Ice on Fire and a Silver disc for Elton John’s single Nikita.
