San Antonio, Texas Professional Staff
This Music Notes blog, our web site at https://www.wonderofsound.com., and www.studiowonderofsound.com are components of LiSem Enterprises, Inc. located in San Antonio, Texas. Daniel Kobialka, an internationally recognized violinist and composer, founded Li-Sem in 1981. The company was established to provide a vehicle to create, arrange, produce, and record a “spacial music” that builds on the concepts of the ancients. Daniel’s music offers the listener modern arrangements of his original works or combines elements from classical styles with modern elements to produce original compositions. His catalog at www.wonderofsound.com contains over twenty-five albums of neo classical, new age, and jazz selections. Our professional and technical staff work to meet music lovers needs.
Since its founding, Li-Sem has developed into a full-service independent recording company. Striving to provide our clients with high quality music. As a result, we have the ability to not only provide mechanical CDs but to make our music available as downloads and on flash drives. The advantage of the move to flash drives is we are now able to provide wave files and liner notes not available with mp3 format. It also eliminates the need for a CD player or listening to mp3s on a phone. Unlike listening to playlists where you are purchasing “air” you have the ability to create your playlists and albums on a portable device.
Our studio, Studio Wonder of Sound, is a state of the art mixing and mastering facility offering a full compliment of both the digital and analog worlds. If you have a need to create, we have the ability to produce custom albums to market your products.
