SONIC BOOTH: Gareth Hudson, from Hazy Cosmic Jive recording studio, can help artists get to where they need to go with their music, from the most basic conceptual points, to fully seasoned bands, ready to record.
For those with a musical vision, Hazy Cosmic Jive recording studio welcomes you.
A state-of-the-art facility that offers recording, mixing, arranging, mastering and music production services on City Road at Adamstown Heights.
It doesn’t matter if it’s just lyrics, a few bars to a riff, or a concept album ready to lay down in its entirety – musician and record producer Gareth Hudson has the skills, experience and equipment to help you realise your musical dream. Gareth has worked in many genres and can arrange music for any combination of instruments in any style.
A gigging multi-instrumentalist who regularly performs, Gareth has recorded and produced top local artists including; Amy Vee, Auriel Andrew, Daniel March, Nick Saxon, Carl The Bartender, Adam Miller and many more. He’s also worked with nationally acclaimed artists like The Buddy Knox Blues Band, JayTee Hazard (Hilltop Hoods/Briggs), Briggs (feat. Gurrumul) and The Beards.
As well as record producing, Gareth is currently composing a musical about Captain James Cook called Between Worlds, set to stage in Hawaii next year.
“I’ve been recording and producing for over 10 years with bands all around Australia,” Gareth said. “With the help of Andy Lindsay from Muso’s Corner, I’ve invested a lot of time and money into Hazy Cosmic Jive Studio. Artists come in and really love working in this space. I’ve got two fully isolated recording rooms, a vocal booth, and a monitoring control room.
“All rooms have been acoustically treated to ensure the best possible recording outcomes. Musicians can track simultaneously in separate isolated rooms, or multi-track their songs, to tape or digital format. And I have a full range of instruments and gear – whatever you need.”
Gareth can help develop a song by bringing in any combination of instruments. If you’re hearing a string quartet, rock guitar, flute, trumpet, synthesiser or full orchestra in your next single, Gareth can pull the musicians and resources together to make it happen. Whatever the individual artist or band wants to do, Gareth can accommodate.
A range of recording packages to suit needs are available, including hourly rates, day packages, EP packages and album packages.
“It’s all up to the individual or band,” he said. “I consult about a project, offer a full quote and we take it from there. Hours can vary according to whatever works for the artist.”
A graduate of Newcastle Conservatorium of Music (B Mus), Gareth also teaches piano and guitar and offers song-writing and production classes.
