PRODUCTION: 

One question that we're asked all the time is, "What is a producer?" 

    Think of a producer as a project manager that also acts as a creative director . When recording music, foley or a film score for a movie, or an audio book, there are a lot of executive decisions that need to be made. Bands working to record their album sometimes don't anticipate this and run into creative disagreements that lead to standstills when making the creative decisions that can waste time, energy, money, and sometimes even bring the project to a complete halt. It's a producer's job to work with the artists from before the recording project itself begins. A producer has to realize the creative vision and "soundscape" an artist has for their music and help them prepare the best plan of action to achieve it. Once the recording process begins, a producer will help keep the project moving forward towards it's goal while offering constructive criticism and creative suggestions along the way coaching the artist to capture their best performances and ultimately get the most out of their time in the studio and their budget. Coordinating schedules, booking session musicians that might be needed, and making decisions thru the process of editing and mixing of a song can greatly distract an artist from maintaining focus. It's a producer's job to orchestrate all the duties of a recording project while keeping the project moving in a positive, forward direction allowing the artists to focus on the most important thing, their craft.  

    Our producers are here to help you create the masterpiece you hear in your head in the most effective and efficient way possible. With our producers assisting your project you'll far surpass your own expectations.

RECORDING, EDITING, & MIXING:

Recording, editing and mixing is the job of the audio engineer. They are responsible for properly capturing the music. Unlike a producer, an engineer isn't always responsible for orchestrating the progress of a project or coaching the artist's performance. It's their job to combine the proper equipment, best technique, and use their professional experience to bring a songs tracks to life through the recording process. The editing and mixing skills required to make a song it's best are crucial and widely underestimated by artists.  

    The audio engineers at The Brickyard are musical wizards and audio ninjas that will make your music it's best because we care about your sound!

REHEARSAL SPACE:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Sometimes you just need a stress free, cozy place to jam."

    Most rehearsal studios offer tiny rooms for rent that are engulfed in the ruckus and rumble of other bands sharing your walls. This experience is quite distracting ultimately keeping you from making progress and maintaining focus. At The Brickyard, we allow our large 25' x 36' live room to be rented out for rehearsals so that you can get things done. It's inviting, spacious, acoustically pleasing, and positive atmosphere make for an excellent place to gather and work on your music while holding your privacy to the highest respect. We fully furnish the rehearsal space with whatever PA equipment you may need including mics, stands, cabling, and monitors. We have amplifiers, keyboards, and drums available at your request making it so you can just walk up, plug in, and get to work. We can even record rehearsals making it a great place to hold pre-production rehearsals to prepare for upcoming recording sessions. 

    Drop us a line.. We'll hook you up.
