BigFish Studio

Well, this post isn't exactly shakuhachi related, but it certainly is part of my world.  For the past 1 1/2 years, I've been planning, researching, building, gearing-up and tweaking a small, pro level audio project studio along with my partner and good friend Richard Gilbert on Mt. Kinpo to the west of Kumamoto city.  It's now at the point that we can start lining up clients for recording.  We're putting the final touches to our website which should be done this weekend.  Other work at the moment is concerned with building and installing bass traps and audio diffusion in the mix room and vocal booth.  Our goal is to create an environment suitable to record the many traditional musicians living in this area and certainly from elsewhere as well, though we aren't adverse to recording modern musicians either.  In fact, one of our initial clients is a local, 5 piece rock band called The Bliss.
We warmly invite any shakuhachi players interested in putting their sound down in a beautiful atmosphere to give us a shout.

  1. Wow, J/R! It's really come a long way. Beautiful! Happy you snuck some blue in the awesome light scheme, too ;).

    Wish I could be there for the official christening.

    Nice work!
