your music deserves to be heard
We do things differently here at Ishikawa. Each team member has their own specialised workspace, and we have adapted to a hybrid workflow. We are as at home working remotely, or in our wider network of facilities.
The facilities and equipment at Ishikawa Media 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. Each member of the team has their own personal space, geared towards their specialties. When working with us to produce your audio project, we can make use of our network of recording and production facilities, as well as our location recording equipment.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic we have found that our colleagues and clients tend to prefer a remote-work model, since it opens up the ability to work without geographical obstacles. The team is spread between the UK and various states in the USA, so for those necessary in-person sessions, we can normally accommodate without much trouble at all.
Another benefit of the remote-working model is the reduced overheads, with recording spaces only needing to be hired on an as-needed basis. These savings are passed onto you.
RECORDING WITH US
For all productions with us, the use of our facilities is included with the production quote. Because most of these facilities are privately owned, and used for composition and other commissions, we do 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 producers, 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. We have years of experience with recording in various studios around the world, and we are also able to use our location recording skills to record ensembles in more unusual spaces, which can often keep costs down.
