Recording music in the studio
This is the meat of the recording stew, the work that we often derive the most joy from. It’s our pleasure to bring you down to the HoW studio to immerse yourself in the creation of your music. Together, we do tracking, overdubbing, mixing, and production. A discussion beforehand will determine the extent to which the music will be produced. In some cases, we are available to help with the creation of physicals. Pricing is not determined by an hourly rate, but on a project-by-project basis. We are successful in having a continuous stream of work because we find prices that facilitate creation, prices that work for both the artist and engineer.
Recording on location
We can come to you. If your band is more comfortable playing and recording in your practice space, that’s fine. Once tracking is completed, the sessions are brought back to the studio where production work begins. We’ve also recorded quite a few concerts. If your band would like to record an upcoming concert, get in touch with us at least 10 days in advance. We have quality examples of live recordings such as this Certain Molecules performance from the Modality residency series. We are also available to record events such as speeches, sermons, spontaneous outbreaks of song and ceremonies.
Get involved with your college or community radio station; support them when they ask for it and keep tuning in. Through our access to college and community radio, we have a wealth of experience with producing radio programs, promotional announcements, underwriting mentions, public service announcements and more. We are capable of producing content for both non-commercial and commercial radio promotion.
In addition to radio production, HoW has also taken on a number of audio books. As of now, our repertoire consists of one 14th century piece of French literature called Roman de la Rose, Rilke’s Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge, Pushkin’s The Captain’s Daughter and coming up, Ice-T’s autobiography The Ice Opinion: Who Gives a Fuck? We are currently seeking publishing houses interested in contracting our recording services.
