The facilities and equipment at Ishikawa Studios are geared towards achieving high end sound quality, maintaining flexibility in different workflows, and making sure the recording process of any project remains as creative as possible. When working with David Lawrie as a producer, Ishikawa Studios is available for recording as much or as little of the project as is required. When different spaces are required (for whatever reason), Ishikawa Media has partners all over the world, meaning that a project produced with David can make use of studios and facilities wherever the project dictates.
RECORDING AT ISHIKAWA STUDIOS
For all productions with David Lawrie, the use of Ishikawa Studios is included with the production quote. Because this is David’s personal studio for composition and other commissions, it does not run like most commercial studios (where the fee you pay will normally only secure the recording space and an in-house engineer, meaning you will have to pay extra to bring in a producer and/or other personnel). The Ishikawa approach means that you can work with an internationally renowned producer with high end recording gear, and also save a significant amount of money.
If, during the initial project planning, it is decided that some parts of the production require recording time in other facilities (for example, to record a particularly large ensemble), then any such costs will be factored into the budget. David has years of experience with recording in various studios around the world, and is also able to use his location recording skills to record ensembles in more unusual spaces, which can often keep costs down.
CAN I HIRE ISHIKAWA STUDIOS FOR A DAY?
Because Ishikawa Studios is mainly used for larger projects and commissions, its availability as a pay-per-day studio is limited. With that being said, there are sometimes openings for the studio to be used in such a manner, so please get in touch via the contact form to check availability.
