Our work

Working in a range of sound disciplines keeps us excited about every aspect of audio production. For us each day is a sonic adventure where we further develop our understanding and skills. Here are just a few examples of the kind of things we get up to.

A project where the track was built from the ground up one instrument recorded at a time, including the studios grand piano. This method allows more flexibility in production and arrangement techniques, in effect the studio becomes another instrument that can be used to craft and shape sound.

Gary Reader Quintet


Composed by

Ebb and Flow

An experimental Jazz outfit featuring Saxophone, Drums, Double bass, Keys, and Electric Guitar. To capture the dynamic interplay between the band it was vital they could play together completely live with full visual contact while tightly controlling spill between instruments. Getting the room set up right is key, finding the right balance between vibe and mic choice and placement.

This collaboration with Jonny Desai showcases electronic, orchestral and piano arrangements and was selected as track 1 on the album ‘Darkly Delicate’.

Our brief from BMG asked for:
‘ Sparse & delicate Scandi & Nordic noir tracks with emotive depth that should fit perfectly under modern drama.’

Superb performances from Cellist Liz Hanks and Violinist Clare Stanley really helped us reach the sound we were looking for.

Sometimes it’s great to create with no prior ideas and just a bunch a bunch of mics, pedals and kit etc and see where the mood takes you. This piece was conjured in studio 2 with long time collaborator ‘Lee Gretton’ whose drumming and Guitar energy is captured in a series of improvisations.

When asked by one of our publishers to create several sideways pop tracks, we began playing with some drums we had created on analogue synths. The Stranger things series served as inspiration  for us to use our Juno and Oberheim synths to create some retro pads and the vocal started to emerge. Incredible Local singer Tiger Cohen Towell was just right for the synth pop sound and captured the mood of the song brilliantly.
