Goings On At The Shop

2014

At the end of 2011, I took a full time gig at Minnetonka Audio, which meant Seneschal had to be dropped into the deep freeze…Now, it’s summer and I’m back in the swing!

In August, a series of talks at the California Audio Show brought me to California’s Bay Area. In October, it was “Rocky Mountain” coverage for audioXpress.

2011

Despite fairly depressing news on business and the economy in general, Seneschal has experienced steady growth in the 2nd quarter of 2011 and, if trends continue, the 3rd and 4th quarters should see significant easing of marketing budgets.

2010

For Seneschal, the third and fourth quarter of 2010 were all about maintaining brands and delivering consistent messaging despite tight budgets and a generally sour business disposition. Participation at several trade shows proved to be both strategic and profitable, overcoming lackluster expectations for the events. Our clients ended the year on a rising note and are looking forward to 2011…

In March of 2010, Seneschal provided technical services to a massive digital archiving project in London, conducted on behalf of one of the Big Four music content holders. Working with a wide range of audio pros in the process, we learned several new lessons, enabling us to deliver an ever more finely tuned client experience.

Other recent marketing projects have included sales and marketing initiatives for Minnetonka Audio, in preparation for NAB 2010.

The 2010 CES was a successful marketing focus for Sonic Studio, where they participated in coop marketing with Weiss Engineering Ltd., dCS America and Ayre Acoustics, Inc., among other high end manufacturers. We have begun to define the next generation of CE products in the Amarra line…stay tuned for the latest developments.

Seneschal has added a new client to our roster…A site redesign and overhaul was recently completed for Independent Mastering in Nashville.

2009

An ongoing project is the design and implementation of production infrastructure and an asset management system for the San Francisco Symphony.

Seneschal completed public relations work for Wholegrain Digital Systems and an extremely successful first product rollout with Burgin McDaniel Design that incorporated unified branding, strategy, press and public relations.
