About

Underground Audio is a commercial recording facility owned and operated by Christopher Brownbill. It is located in West End, just 10 minutes outside of Brisbane City. It has been designed to cater to independent artists and bands in terms of budget, accessibility and its inventory of equipment.

The studio measures 108m2 in the main tracking room and 32m2 in the dead room. Originally constructed from brick, the studio has been meticulously treated to control sound energy, though a lot of the brick and concrete has been preserved to create a flattering and lively, reflective sound. The dead room however has been isolated and built to be close to entirely non reflective. The walls are consisting of absorptive membranes to control low end.

Underground houses a vast assemblage of boutique amplifiers, drum sets, instruments and recording equipment which can be viewed in the ‘inventory’ section of this site.

Freelance engineers are welcome, as are all kinds of bands and artists. If you have any question about recording here please email undergroundaudiobrisbane@gmail.com
