Michael Joly and Alene Sibley
Michael Joly has been designing studio microphones since 1990. In 2016, his career shifted to something a bit more mindful. He moved with his partner, intuitive counselor Alene Sibley, to her childhood home in a remote part of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. The two blended their expertise—Michael’s exploration of sound and Alene’s strategies to help clients overcome fear—to create a set of therapy speakers that produce special meditative tones. The couple has developed a close working relationship with the progressive, female-owned factory that produces the speakers in Shenzhen China. They make regular visits to ensure the production is aligned with the mission for their design: to bring inner peace to all people.
