A very kind shoutout by bud Chris Forsyth. Gimme a shout if you’re looking to make some records in 2022!

Hey just a Happy New Year recommendation here. This is engineer/producer/musician/100% best dude Jeff Zeigler. If you’re in Philly you definitely know him and there’s an excellent chance that even if you’re not in Philly, you know him. And if you’ve ever heard my music, you’ve heard him, as he’s had a hand in literally everything I’ve done in the last 12-13 years. He’s got big ears, mega chops, excellent ideas. If you’ve got a recording/mixing project coming up, I’m here to suggest his services, remote or in person for your rock, electronic, ambient, free jazz, cool jazz, death jazz, hair metal, shoe gaze, hip hop, post-punk, country funk, or other retro futurist mangling of all sorts. Hit him up! Love ya, JZ!

For the last months, Ive had the pleasure of working with Ricardo Rivera on the newest installation by Klip Collective as the music director, collaborator and sound designer/composer.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with some truly inspiring sound artists on this project such as: Dan Deacon, Mary Lattimore - Harpist, Julianna Barwick and Jeff Zeigler aka Uniform Recording- all of whom had created bespoke pieces for this show. The soundtrack CD package , designed by Anthony Smyrski Studios, is available for purchase ONLY on location at Grounds For Sculpture gift shop and available to stream on Spotify.

So…. if you are in the area, please come and visit, and enjoy some mind-melting.

hey all, here i am, once again a bit wary of sharing this but am on the *final leg* of finishing the studio and way over budget and schedule due to a variety of unfortunate and unexpected circumstances. if you’ve got the means to donate to finishing the space i am eternally grateful, but if not feel free to send this link to your financially well-off aunt or uncle that really like to jam out to some of the records i’ve worked on. thanks again and love to you all.

just wanted to thank everyone whose contributed thus far at any level - your help in getting past these hurdles and completing the studio has been invaluable. so far the test seal i’ve temporarily installed in the leak zone - complete with 3x strength loctite surrounding the grommet, and multiple layers of weight on top - has held, and i’ve got a sump pump on standby if need be until we implement a more permanent solution.

am in the midst of console install and building as we speak, and am starting a few more sessions to keep some level of cash flow, but i’m still hoping to meet the final goal in order to get the studio finished soon, and open for y’all! thanks again for all of your kindness and support. been a helluva few months on a variety of fronts.

So i’m ending this campaign later today and just have to say THANK YOU. i’m completely overwhelmed by the show of support, and can’t properly express how much this campaign has saved this studio and helped me regain some sanity. I’ve always taken pride in helping to connect artists with each other, or with gear that they need in a pinch, or coordinate a show etc. I’ve also always tried to keep my rates low enough for artists to stretch out and make creative records - even on a tight budget - probably part of the reason a lot of the bands i’ve worked with have had our records together become a jumping off point for reaching a larger audience. I strongly believe in the importance of our music community, both in Philly, nationally and internationally, and am beyond grateful to feel that support coming back at me. Love you all and I look forward to producing great records for you from the very special space i’m creating. TLDR; Flooding is a nightmare, as are adverse reactions to Antidepressants and rando Thyroid-induced exhaustion. There’s more but i’ll spare you for now! Thanks again everyone.

GOAL REACHED: thank you all so much - between all of the shares and donations i’m truly speechless at the outpouring of support. i’ve decided to leave the campaign up for a week total - and any additional funds beyond the goal will be used towards additional equipment and services needed. I’ll also be donating 20% of the additional proceeds to the ACLU. thank you so much! can’t wait to start making records again for / with you all.

hey friends - so I very reluctantly set up a gofundme to help with some of the remaining studio buildout costs that are kinda swallowing me due to delays from fun health stuff and flooding. so far the control room is mostly done and i’m pretty optimistic that the space is going to be amazing and really special. anything is appreciated, including simply spreading the word to someone who might be a fan of some records i’ve worked on. love y’all.

very psyched on this stellar-sounding new studio buddy from Manley that I picked up last week. Inaugural run on bass for Control Top over the past few days, and currently using it on the mix buss while printing some roughs for good ol Mike Polizze of Purling Hiss. Amazing in both situations.

just picked up this very nice-sounding AEG MKL-101 bottle mic - a Russian take on the Telefunken U47. it exhibits a lot of the same depth, richness and tonal characteristics as U47s i’ve used, but with its own vibe. been putting it to use on piano, acoustic guitar and percussion so far for Mike Polizze of Purling Hiss, and piano and marxophone on a remix for Mary Lattimore.

Two really exciting purchases for the studio this past week:

a Shergold Modulator and a Meris Polymoon.

Shergold guitars, primarily known for their use by Bernard Sumner in Joy Division & New Order and Mike Rutherford of Genesis, were a small, London-based company originally active from 1975-81. This model, the Modulator, was made available with 7 different drop-in modules with a variety of features. This particular module - the "recording module" - offers single-coil, humbucker and out-of-phase humbucker options for both of its' 16-pole pickups. This guitar plays and sounds incredible, and i’m super duper excited about putting it to work in the studio - it’s one of the most well-crafted instruments i’ve ever played.

the Meris Polymoon is a super - deep 1200 ms tap tempo delay with an insane number of inventive options, inspired by the sound of cascading rack effects, and geared towards the ambient-minded (👨🏻‍🚀).

Two great new additions to both the studio and my personal collection!

09/23/2017

took a chance on this 1974 made in japan epiphone "casino" i found on ebay for just 350. the internet guitar world are _not_ fond of these things, mainly due to the bolt-on (?!) fender size neck and some general QC issues, so i was a little wary, and gotta say i didn't love it at first, but after shimming the neck and adjusting the truss rod it plays beautifully. the stock humbuckers are sorta bland - will be replacing them with hb-sized p90's, along with the nut, as my first tweaks, then in the long term may replace the pots and maybe put a bigsby on it. pleasantly surprised by this 70's "casino" that's honestly more like a sheraton (semi-hollow, humbuckers) that was pretty damn cheap! will be a nice addition to the studio.

lots of great artists in here, including Allison Crutchfield:
