As of tomorrow, Sonic Jackalope is going on a production hiatus. With a small staff of one and no less than 8 Productions past due, it is not currently financially feasible to continue.

As the owner, I understand times are difficult, but this systemic problem has caused our small studio to have to close to any new Productions until further notice

Happy New Yearโ€™s Eve birthday to Daphne Oram (1925-2003), British composer, BBC sound engineer, unsung innovator, and electronic musician. Oram was the first woman to direct an electronic music studio, and the first woman to design and construct an electronic musical instrument, The Oramics Machine.

Just a reminder: Sonic Jackalope Studio takes pride in being a safe space for all people, and will continue to be so.

If you are attacked, or even under threat, our studio is a secure, safe and guarded space. Be you of any minority group: We condone NO racism. NO Fascism. NO religious fundamentalism. We have security measures in place, and a network of able bodied community members dedicated to keeping our community safe. The police refuse to. The state refuses to.

So, we stand up.

Contact us. We would rather see you here to record an album or a podcast, but all friends are welcome when in a time of need.

is in the studio knocking out a couple of episodes, with the next one hopefully being released THIS MONDAY! But, Wyatt the Jackalope (our official Mascot and representative) got a bit too excited about our first podcast series being recorded here at the studio.

You'd think a Cryptid would be better at holding his liquor...

OMG!!!! We TOTALLY missed the birthday of our patron Saint here at Sonic Jackalope Studio , Wendy Carlos! World- Class concert pianist , skilled engineer on the cutting edge of synthesizer design and Grammy award winning composer of Classical works, ambient electronic albums and legendary film scores that include works such as "The Shining", "A Clockwork Orange" and "Tron" (a personal favorite and inspiration for the owner of the studio themselves!). She even collaborated with Weird AL Yankovic on a comedy rendition of "Peter and The Wolf" that, of course, garnered another Grammy nomination!

As a musician, an engineer, a composer and an openly transgendered woman, she is the pioneer we all should strive to be.

To the mother of electronic music, happy birthday! You are one of the reasons Sonic Jackalope exists today...

Happy birthday to the great Wendy Carlos, the GRAMMY-winning electronic music pioneer and composer behind "Switched-On Bach," as well as the soundtracks to Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" and "The Shining."

Bob observed of Carlos that "She really understood instinctively what I was doing right and wrong. In my entire lifetime, I'd only seen a very few people who took so naturally to an instrument...It was just a God-given gift."

In turn, she called Bob "an intelligent, modest, and lovable man who helped us define a new medium. I don't know how I'd have been able to start my career if Bob had not been there. And I'll never forget him."

Respect to one of the greats on her birthday.

It looks like this may be it for tonight. If you didn't get a chance to come by to check the studio out, I will be back in on Tuesday. Feel free to come by to talk shop or to just hang and to check the space out.

Thank you ALL!!

Yeah... not going to lie: Got a lot done at the studio simply because not too many people swung by today. I admit having to shift opening day back a week wasn't good for a lot of folks. But, I may not be here until the original stated time of midnight. Staying late, but perhaps not that late.

Of course, if you are planing on swinging by, just let me know!

We are OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!!!

Today's open house is ON! Still plenty of tiny bits to do, but this is your chance to come see the studio nearly 2 decades in the making! Come have a drink, relax and let's see how to make some MF'ing ART!

And, our muse and founder, Wyatt, is in the house! Come by and pry from him the mysteries of Cryptids and raucous touring stories

10/21/2022

Tomorrow, it is time!!!!

Sonic Jackalope Studio will be OPEN, and the power of the biggest little full-service recording studio will be available to everyone!

There was a bit of a delay, but the results will be worth it! Come by Saturday, 12 noon - 12 midnight, until the wee hours of the morning if need be. Come see the strange chimera of digital and analog and even get your hands on it! Or, just have a drink and take in the mid-century modern atmosphere. It may just inspire you...

Thank you all for your patience, as this has been a labor of love indeed!

See you TOMORROW!!!!

Night of The Jackalope... delayed.

I am afraid that we will not be fully operational by tomorrow. Various live Productions, a few health issues and (of all things), the theft of my motorcycle have slowed things up a bit. BUT, not for long!

The NEW night of the Jackalope will be alive and FULLY ready for the world Saturday, October 22. It will still be from 12pm-12am, but this time with GUARANTEED greatness, booze and a chance to see how you can use us!

(That sounded desperate. Sorry)

So, delete the reminders and reset them again, but for this Saturday the 22nd!

A little over one week, and the biggest little studio will finally be open to the public. The power of a modern, full digital production studio with literally tons of analog hardware that you won't find just anywhere.

Doubtful? Well, come on down and get your hands on it for yourself! Come have a drink, kick the tires and see what downtown Phoenix's newest recording studio can do!

So, shake off that Pride hangover and discover Arizona's newest Cryptid: An affordable studio that can be digital AND analog! All genres and people welcomed! Sonic Jackalope is an inclusive and safe space, and will fight to make sure it stays so for all people.

Things are happening, and you are probably wondering "WHEN can we start recording? What is the Sonic Jackalope? What can you do? Where is the Jackalope from, and why did they bring their gear here? Will the Jackalope bring peace to Ukraine? Will he have to go to Martha's Vineyard?"

All will be answered and more at the Sonic Jackalope Studio Open House!

Slated for the day after Pride Weekend, feel free to just drop in from 12pm noon until we get exhausted and have to close down the bunny hutch. Have a few drinks, play with the vintage gear and talk shop about tracking your next album, creating a professionally produced podcast or booking some tiem on some sweet drum machines and synths for your beatmaking pleasure.

It is no longer a legend...

Now, you know it is serious when you get the STICKERS made!!

Ok, "decals", for the more professional take.

Granted, there are really very few consultant labels that deal with merch, but, why not? Besides, they look killer on a Pelican case!

Special shout out to for really doing a fantastic job! Super easy to order proofs, delivered faster than quoted and really nice quality vinyl. I dig them!
