Creative Sound Lab

Real musicians making real music...

About us... | Creative Sound Lab

Creative Sound Lab was formed in 2005 by two of Spain’s top session musicians, when they decided to offer a fresh sound to the national television market. On our 10th Anniversary we moved our offices to Los Angeles CA.
As a company we offer absolutely every musical service imaginable and of the highest digital and analogical quality.  We play nearly every instrument and also sing within a modern musical setting (drums, percussion,guitar,bass and piano, plus all vocals) but also work with the most up to date software to create virtually all of the above and every other instrument imaginable.
