Indra / Chief Audio Engineer & Designer
Made Indrayana was born in 1990, and his passion for audio and music began at the early age of seven, when he started recording his favourite anime show’s song from his family’s television to his tape recorder. His eagerness to experiment and to try something new led him to learn many different musical instruments, and enroll in the Conservatory of Music Universitas Pelita Harapan (UPH), Indonesia, studying Sound Design and Music Production in 2008. He finished his studies in 2013, earning the title Bachelor of Music with “Cum Laude” honorand afterwards worked for the university as an assistant lecturer. His studies offered him the chance to work with many different forms of media, such as film, animation, music production, live sound engineering and recording. He has worked not only with many musicians from the UPH, but also with sound design projects such as profile videos.

He has also participated in various film projects through a cooperation with the University of Arts (HfBK) Hamburg and the HAW Hamburg.
