Sono Luminus, was created in 1995 when Sandy Lerner and Len Bosack, founders of Cisco Systems, a top supplier of networking tools for the Internet decided that their expertise in digital signal processing, computational mathematics and physics would enable them to bring a new level of recording fidelity to music. Drawing upon their expertise in digital technologies as well as their love of music, they applied their experiences to realize a life-long dream: to develop and create a new paradigm for recorded sound, dedicated to the realization of true Performance Fidelity. To achieve this, Sono Luminus adopted a simple philosophy of “less is more.” Allowing for natural ambient acoustics, recorded dry, to determine optimal microphone placement, Sono Luminus became a first choice for acoustic, classical and early music artists and ensembles.

In 2005, after over a decade of producing critically acclaimed recordings for several major and independent labels, Sono Luminus decided to enter the market under its own masthead. The acquisition of the Dorian catalogue provided Sono Luminus with an extraordinary opportunity to build upon past accomplishments and establish new standards of excellence. The new company, operating as Sono Luminus, benefits not only from the proven entrepreneurial expertise of Sono Luminus founders Sandy Lerner and Len Bosack, but has assembled a distinguished team of the brightest innovative newcomers to the Engineering and Creative sides of the company as well as the top industry veterans, who demonstrate their commitment to excellence in every project.
