Co-founder & Senior Software Architect
Evan Olcott has been a resident of Minneapolis since 1992 when he moved from his hometown of Oxford, Ohio to pursue a career in the recording industry. He graduated with honors from the Peabody Conservatory of Music at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore in 1992 with bachelors degrees in Music Performance and Recording Arts and Sciences (the first student to finish the difficult double-degree program in 4 years). During his time at Peabody, he spent a majority of his spare time programming on his Mac Plus, writing small software programs and working with the simple audio apps of the time. In Minneapolis, he began slowly building a small recording studio in his home. Evan soon became involved with the highly acclaimed local band 12RODS, which allowed him to experiment and utilize the studio to a great degree. After accolades on the quality of his work, Evan began to produce more work from local artists as well as remix projects by other artists. As the studio grew, it soon became too large for his home and Integral Studio was born. Evan spent most of his time at Integral Studio working with local bands (as well as becoming a member of Halloween, Alaska), as well as numerous projects for movie trailers, TV shows, cartoons and commercials. As his experience grew, so did his frustration with the audio tools of the day; to him, most didn't seem capable of catching up with the cool new features available in Apple's OS X, so he decided to author his own. Four years later, hobby and profession collided and Audiofile Engineering was established.
Co-founder & Operations Manager
Matthew Foust grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and began playing music at age 8. Not long after, his family purchased one of the first 10,000 Macintosh computers ever produced and began his journey into technology. While attending Beloit College, he defected from Mathematics to Classics, eventually graduating with a degree in Classical Philology and a self-designed interdisciplinary minor and won two academic prizes for Classics. While at Beloit, Matthew honed his computer skills laying out a book (utilizing both Roman and Greek orthographies) in Aldus PageMaker for his advisor. After making his way back to the Twin Cities, he quickly dug into song writing and playing live as much as possible, eventually meeting Evan Olcott (via his brother Ryan) and joining the two of them in 12RODS and later co-founding the highly acclaimed local band Love-cars. He also followed Evan to his day job at Rapp Collins Communications and, from there, worked his way to an IT management position at Martin Williams Advertising. In 2001, he became a Senior Systems Engineer at Target Corporation where he was responsible for the server infrastructure supporting all digital print production workflow for the corporation. He and Evan Olcott established Integral Studio in 2000 and Audiofile Engineering in 2004.
