Nada Sound Studio
I am a freelance audio engineer working out of a variety of studios in the Greater Philadelphia region. The appellation, Nada Sound Studio, originally Nada Bhrama Studio, is a catch-all name that I use both as my publishing copyright as well as for credits for projects completed at my home studio.
The operating ethos of Nada Sound Studio is the very same that I apply to my guitar/composition work, the belief that music contains a universal truth that can help us understand the world and our place in it. The musician's role is to channel this truth as he/she sees it into a meaningful statement blending personal expression with culturally (and sub culture) recognized musical paradigms. The audio engineer's role is to capture and transmit this expression in the purist way possible and strive for the shortest path between the artist's mind/heart and the listener's ear/heart.
The name Nada Sound Studio derived from the Hindu concept of Nada Brahma, roughly translated to "sound is god". The basic concept is that sound is the voice of the universally divine, and music, being the organization of sounds, is the language with which that divine speaks.
That said, I believe that the recording process should be as simplistic as possible with all emphasis put on quality of sound and delivering a client's project to the absolute closest possible representation of his/her artistic vision.
