WE BRING THE STUDIO TO YOU.
With a background in both experimental and community-orientated audio, our focus is on creating the perfect context for your recording, without losing any of the character that defines your music.
WhY WORK WITH US?
Utilising our mobile studio, we can record your music in an environment of your choosing - the place where you feel most comfortable, most inspired, or simply the location with your favourite acoustics. We also team up with a local studio to offer traditional studio-recording at a competitive rate.
Whether a band wanting to jam in a cabin in the woods, a choir accustomed to a particular church, or a songwriter looking to record half-way up a mountain, we've got you covered.
We offer a recording experience tailored to your specific needs. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, we'll work with you to hire the perfect recording space for your needs, whether thats an abandoned warehouse, . a 12th century castle, your own home, or a traditional studio.

Self-styled 'Gloom-pop' group Lonely Aisles needed a recording that matched their unique blend of folk, pop, rock and electronica.
Tracked at both a professional studio and, for the more intimate moments, in the bands own homes, 7000 Trees were able to capture the bands inherent character, balancing both the boldness of drums, guitars and synthesisers, with the delicate nature of the cello, piano, and vocal harmonies.

Peruvian 'Psych-folk' duo Mill Kanella are nothing if not mysterious. Having played separately in various local Psych outfits for the last decade, the two musicians came together to explore their mutual interest in 'natural incantations'. Performed primarily upon the
Chinese Guhzeng and percussion, their music is composed on the riverbanks, and forests of their home town. They wanted a recording that could reflect the organic, ecological qualities of their music.

Sound-artist Distant Animals composes dense weaves of modular synthesis and field recordings.
With 'Circa Circa', his E.P. for the American label Nomad Exquisite, he wanted to explore mixing electronic-pop techniques with lo-fi and analogue recording. Using our direct-to-tape recording set-up, we were able to augment his contemporary electronic sounds with organic grit and grain.
