“Riley Koenig is an immensely gifted composer and a truly giving and gifted creative partner... What we created together with "Invincible Sun" was one of the most unique and beautiful artistic products of my life to date, and a sizable percentage goes to Riley Koenig and to his cohorts at Power Up Audio. I think that this man could bring the same level of skill and musicianship to any project that requires a music score, and that Power Up Audio are a great team.” - Arinn Dembo, Kerberos Productions
