Mobile professional digital audio recording studio

My passion for audio recording began 50 years ago by holding a small dynamic microphone against my father’s record player. I could play the recording back on my primitive ( it was state of the art!) tape cassette player. How things have changed!

Recording studio technology has advanced greatly.  Electronic processing modules, tape machines and bulky sound desks can be replaced with compact and versatile digital equipment.

As well as many years practical experience I have also successfully completed formal courses in digital audio recording / production  (studio and live venue).

Clients

Earwig specialises in working with solo artists / musicians (including commissions for recording music study / examination pieces) and small acoustic musical combos.

The list of clients has grown to include choirs, narrators, poets, personal coaches, schools, multi faith based community projects, hypnotherapists, life coaches, educational advisers and professional trainers.
