We are creators of stories in music and sound. And have been since 2000.
Big Orange composes for Digital, Advertising and Film.
We know how to tell a story. The way we do this is through music and sound. Why? Because we want to touch you; we communicate emotion. Your ears are our way in .

3D audio concepts and experiences
Big Orange Studios
We have our recording studios in two cities. One in the creative breeding ground Pand Noord in Amsterdam, where we have our highly-praised recording facilities. And there’s free parking. Our other location is in Utrecht, right next to the historical wharfs of the Oudegracht, with a picnic table at the waterside and small boats to watch go by.
We question. Before putting a single note on paper, before pressing a single key, we ask questions. What story do you want to tell? And why do you want to tell it? We crawl into the story and we get to know it, through and through. Down to the tiniest detail. Only when we fully grasp its meaning, will we decide what to do and how to do it.
From here we’ll do our creative things; a process that is different every time. One constant however is that we’ll be there for you throughout the entire process ̶ until the very last sound.
We make sure that everything is organized and that the audio will be there on time. In other words: we’ll take the load off your shoulders.
Audio experiences and 3D audio
As storytellers, we sketch, design and create audio experiences for museums and educational purposes. To ensure the greatest experience of our audio concepts, we use 3D audio.
3D audio is audio that has been recorded and produced in a special way, replicating exactly how we hear sound. Playback is easy; just use your headphones, any type will do. Only now, instead of standard (left-right) stereo, the sound can also come from the front or the back. Even from above or below. Now stories really come alive.
Suddenly you’re in an Amsterdam tram, when a strange old man on the seat behind you starts to whisper odd instructions in your ear…
