The Studio

About a month ago I ran into an old friend of mine, Evan Lorden, at the Park Orchards Farmers Market. He mentioned that he was almost finished creating a recording studio at his place. I was curious so I invited myself over to have a look.

Evan and his twin brother Murray have been collecting sound equipment for years. Everything from electric guitars, organs to vintage solid state and valve equipment from the 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's and into the modern era. There is even an old reed organ in the corner. As Evan said, "I think there is a fairly broad appreciation these days for bands who want to get some of the character of the older equipment into their recordings."
I forgot my camera on the day but luckily Evan had lots of photos on Facebook. The studio is located in the peaceful surrounds of Park Orchards which has all benefits of a rural area but is only 30 to 40 minutes away from the Melbourne CBD. The studio has already seen use, but the appointment book is still pretty empty.
