My colleague, Rich LaMotte, and I had the opportunity to meet with our MOC, Grace Meng, in Flushing today to discuss ways to strengthen US copyright laws, continue funding the NEA and music education in public schools!‬ She’s a mensch!!
Many thanks!
For those of you who don’t think your voice matters, take the time to visit your congressional leaders, you will find they are normal people just like us and actually care about the needs of their constituents.

Happy birthday to MONOLisa!

In October 2012, we started renovating our first location,.. A small 15x18 subleased room with a booth, shared in LIC.
We moved to the UWS in 2014, and if that wasn't enough, we moved back to LIC in October 2016.
Hard to believe that this time last year, we were hosting our first session with Yui Yamamoto.

Thank you to all of our family and friends and clients and staff!
We wouldn't be here without you!

Super fun session yesterday recording some Irish Whistles!

I Can't say enough about how great MONOLisa Studios and Denise Barbarita my engineer are. Here is a great little article about her studio where I have been tracking for my next record "Your Dark Place". Yesterday we had the pleasure of working with the very talented Mick Mcauley who resides in Ireland. He added some beautiful Irish whistles to a few tracks. https://www.sonicscoop.com/2017/04/10/recording-studio-sweet-spot-monolisa-long-island-city/

Do you consider yourself a true audio warrior? If so, then jump into that foxhole with the founders of the Long Island City studio MONOLisa. That would be the team of Denise Barbarita and Rich Kulsar, who cannot be stopped in their mission of providing top-level tracking and mixing – affordably – to...

The New York Film Academy Merges Musical Theater With Film

We are so proud to be involved with this program. The original musical scores have been recorded and mixed at MONOLisa since the inception of the program.
Way to go NYFA! Can't wait to see what the future holds!

Are musicals making a comeback? It depends on who you're asking. The Broadway community might say that musicals are flourishing. Disney is too busy looking for the next multi-talented star to answer, while the film industry is trying to rekindle that magic of Hollywood's golden era. Either way, ther...

FB friends! BIIIIIIIIIIIIG Announcement!

Some of you know that MONOLisa has become one of the latest victims of the NYC Real estate monster (our current building is being converted to residential condos).
Today, a new chapter begins!
We have keys to our new place!
We're moving to LIC, (2 blocks from the Court square E/7/G stop.)
Super convenient location, and a much nicer space.
oh, did I mention the 9 ft window?? yeah

The UWS has been good to us, we've been very happy here in this neighborhood, but everything changes eventually.

BIG BIG thank you to all of our clients who have supported us, and trusted us with their musical babies and to our friends and family who have been cheering us on through this whole ordeal.
We couldn't have done it without you and we can't wait to share our new bigger better sunlight filled space with you!
Sessions are still being booked through to September 5th.

MONOLisa v3.0 opening October 2016. See you then!
