Hand Branch Studio

•Hand Branch is a production, mixing and lite-recording space which constitutes the living room of my small apartment, and is obviously not a professional environment. Still, over the years I have done enough work from here that it made sense to include some information for interested parties. Outside of my personal use, the space is most commonly utilized for cost-saving on sessions that I've run through ARC, usually by pre-mixing and preparing sessions for mixing at the studio. It provides an affordable place for a band to catch their breath, assess their work, explore ideas, and so forth.•
