The Studio is an effort to engineer and produce quality audio work and simultaneously offer affordable and reasonable recording services in collaboration with potent Cincinnati musicians. Functioning interdependently among the Marburg Collective, the Studio has come to serve many of our own collective musical endeavors as well as those of good friends and good people.
Between private recording sessions and live event documentation, the Studio has pervaded Marburg Hotel Open Mind Nights, many of the Hotel’s house concerts and basement shows, a number of one-time sessions with local sound artists, and a handful of major recording projects with some outstanding bands. With the advantage of having been mobile and essentially de-centralized for most of it’s life, the Studio has been able and fortunate to utilize a variety of beautiful spaces, including the sanctuary at Rohs Street Cafe, the catacombs of the Mockbee and the living rooms of the Marburg Hotel.
Major productions include Sun Shines the Little Children by The Happy Maladies, It’s Always Winter on the Moon by SHADOWRAPTR, Ponies by Brodie and a self-titled EP by Gorges. The Studio is also responsible for a 14-track compilation, which contains tracks from private and public sessions with a combination of sound and spoken word artists, local to Cincinnati.
Currently, there is an exciting jump start of a new audio compilation series called Friends With Friends, which intends to be an ongoing production for the purpose of producing and promoting a spread of Cincinnati music.
