Recent Work- Samples
Upon arriving in Europe in early 2013 Stephen was in need of a new creative hub to work from. Over the past six months that place has truly become Wisseloord Studios. Built in the mid 1970’s Wisseloord is a world class studio having recorded artists like, Michael Jackson, The Police, Elton John, Foo Fighters and Sting. In 2010 a complete refit began led by Renowned Engineers Ronald Prent and Darcy Proper and the studio reopened in 2012.
Along with a huge back line of instruments, microphones and vintage outboard, the studio features several high end consoles, beautiful acoustic spaces and a restaurant and bar. Two mix rooms are complete and featured up to 10.1 Mix standards. More Information can be found at the Wisseloord site.
The Docking Station was the studio that Stephen built as his creative home in Australia. It became known as one of Australia’s finest Neve recording rooms, boasting Queensland’s only Neve 5316 console. Completely restored, recapped and shipped to Australia by one of New York’s finest studio designers, The Docking Station opened for business in October 2010 boasting six acoustically designed recording spaces and one of the biggest chill-out spaces around including pool table, full bar (including three beers on tap), vinyl collection and more.
The main studio featured the Neve as well as a Geoff Tanner custom built second desk and some of Brisbane’s best outboard gear including a full pro-tools setup. Perfect for live tracking, the spaces created a unique environment with maximum flexibility to capture the energy of a live performance with the precision and perfection expected with studio recording. The Docking Station boasted an impressive list of musical instruments and microphones to ensure the exact sound you want for your recording and to enable the maximum creativity in your sessions.
