Sebastian Visconti boarded a plane In 1989 in his hometown of Philadelphia to attend his sister’s
wedding in Los Angeles, and he never returned. He was a young drummer with rock and roll
dreams. He spent his early years playing and touring with local bands while supporting himself
waiting tables at Ed Debevic’s in Beverly Hills and opening the famous House of Blues on
Sunset Blvd. When he bought his first home, he converted his garage into a recording studio
(which now serves as a post-sound studio). He began producing and recording local artists as
well as serving as the drummer for most of the artists he produced. As the music industry
shifted he found himself at a crossroads. At the urging of a close friend who was an
established sound effects editor, Sebastian jumped into the world of post sound.
