About Me

Chris
Hegstrom

I’ve been creating audio for user experience and interactive media for over 20 years. After studying Music Synthesis at Berklee College of Music, I began my career in live sound with Blue Man Group. I then moved into web audio, which led to over a decade of designing sound for video games, including franchises such as Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Burnout, and God of War.

In 2012, I made the transition into product sound with Microsoft HoloLens where I designed UX sound, sonic branding, and 3D audio. With this experience, I started my own company, Symmetry Audio, in 2015. As Symmetry Audio, I’ve designed VR audio for Unity, HBO, and Technicolor, as well as creating UX sound for Google.

The Westworld VR project, which I worked on at HBO won an Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media Within a Scripted Program.

Lastly, in 2017, I joined Amazon as Senior UX Sound Designer, where I now work on the audio identity of Alexa, Fire TV, and Fire OS.
