Why Daring Sound?
Daring Sound was thought of as a play off of Ryan Udairam's last name. Ryan and his siblings have agreed on the pronunciation of Udairam as [YOU - dare - em]. Hence, the "Daring" part of the last name became the thematic element of what Daring Sound is about: going the extra mile and taking that necessary risk in order to produce that larger-than-life sound. This "extra mile" or this "Daring" element has typically been a key part in Ryan Udairam's life, as he's learned various aspects of music and audio that people discouraged him to not, such as learning piano compositional technique from Maurice Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit by sight-reading the piece each day, and learning about recording large ensembles to name a few.
With this "Daring" element in mind, Daring Sound has spent a number of years accumulating the quality microphones and the finest gear to make your production experience top notch.
About the Logo
The logo for Daring Sound was commissioned by Ching Thao, one of Ryan Udairam's friends. Ching Thao is a 2D animator who graduated from MCAD in 2019 who is based out of Minneapolis, MN [https://www.chingthao.com].
"The first thing that came to me while designing the logo for Daring Sound was the shape of the letter “D”, I wanted it to mimic the Play icon. The white and black line design inside the “D” sort of look like keys from a piano but at the same time they also look like volume bars. Having these two design combined together have this idea of sound being play. I wanted the design of the letter “S” to have this loop at the end of it to point back to the letter “D” conveying the idea of that the sound or music is playing on repeat." - Ching Thao
