Glass Sandbox Productions helps creators actualize musical visions to supplement their media projects.

Glass Sandbox Productions is a custom music and audio production house founded by jesse shafer. We operate as subcontractors creating music and sound design for visual media production companies, record labels, filmmakers, musical artists and ensembles, advertising agencies, and content creators. Behind this company are young, top music industry prospects guided by entertainment and business veterans. We employ professionals to complete specialized tasks we can not fulfill in-house to create a finished product that reflects our attention to detail. We aim to offer a hassle-free experience, understand our clients' needs and to end each project on a high note. 


Some previous examples of our recording work include full studio productions for music libraries, films, musical artists and record labels. We are musicians carrying music performance and composition degrees with extensive experience performing live and playing on recording sessions. We have also arranged music for contemporary ensembles, composed orchestral and chamber music, and produced live Performances.


We are set apart by our desire for modernism matched a deep appreciation of history. Our clients have chosen to work with us because of our diverse skill sets, high standards, and our likable personalities. Upon agreeing to work with us you can expect to rest easily knowing your project is in good hands.
