Co-op Studio

18'x20' live room | 12'x13' control room | Acoustically treated

 

Whether you are a band or recording engineer, you need physical space to be productive.  As an alternative to clinical recording studios and noisy rehearsal spaces, we have a studio space that is split among 4 bands. Our belief is that the essence of recording is to document live music as it unfolds, so that these moments can then be shared with the world. The hardest challenge in playing music in a city is eliminating distractions, which is why simplicity is our guiding principle.  A quiet space, a few versatile microphones, and a great sounding room is all that is needed. A studio should be functional, simple, and most importantly, fun. (somewhere in between a roller coaster ride and chucky e. cheese's is about right.)
