About Luke

Luke Cherchenko is an audio engineer, editor, and musician currently based in the Chicago area. Early training as a classical pianist inspired his love of music, and years of tinkering with used audio equipment passed down from his older brother led him to pursue a career working with sound.

 Luke has worked as an Audio-Visual Technician at the headquarters of Shure Inc., one of the world’s leading consumer and professional audio brands. This competitive internship gave him extensive experience with audio networking and hardware integration in a corporate environment. He also has experience as a Product Technician with Centrance LLC.  Working alongside the CEO and Head Engineer, he was responsible for custom modification and repair of mobile audio interfaces. 

Luke received a Bachelor of Science in Audio Engineering and Sound Production from Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, with a minor in Informatics from IU’s Luddy School. His collegiate experience included all facets of recording, from running several independent multi-tracked sessions in the Georgina Joshi Studio to working as a lead engineer on large scale live productions of the university’s esteemed opera and jazz performances. In addition, Luke collaborated with IU student filmmakers as an editor, sound designer and composer on multiple short films screened at IU Cinema’s Double Exposure Showcase, and contributed as a DJ, engineer and writer for WIUX - IU’s student-run radio station.  

In his free time, Luke loves hosting DIY house shows (when safe) and writing music with his band Luxury Bones, where he plays drums and synthesizers, usually not at the same time.
