Acoustic Recording for Classical and Jazz Musicians

Have mics, will travel

 We believe that a recording project is an artistic Collaboration.

 We believe that a recording project is about trust.

We care about you. We care about your process. We care about every project we take on. You’ve spent years honing your craft; our job is to accurately capture all the intensity and emotion you bring to your performance. Our production team will work to guide you and help you realize your full artistic interpretation and expression. All of our interactions are with the goal of capturing your optimal performance as accurately and beautifully as possible. We focus on clean, clear, and pure techniques using microphones from AEA, Audio Technica, Brauner,  DPA, Neumann, Royer, Sanken, and Schoeps, combined with high quality analog and digital components to deliver a strong and beautiful sound. We accurately capture all the magic of your performance and help you create a visceral and emotional experience for your listeners.
