UNDERGROUND AUDIO - Recording Studio

STAFF

Christopher Brownbill

Chris started out recording 12 years ago on the Sunshine Coast. He learnt to record out of necessity, as a component of the underground music community there was no one else to document what was happening accurately. He later studied and obtained a Diploma in audio engineering. When he was 20 he opened Sun Distortion on the north side of Brisbane, which was a large studio that doubled as a live music venue and art gallery.

When Sun Distortion closed its doors in 2014, he freelanced for a term until being selected to attend a seminar in France with Steve Albini and Greg Norman. He returned to open Underground in 2015 and has been based here since.

Chris is a firm believe in the band or artist being the best judge of themselves and takes on a more utilitarian role as an engineer. This allows whoever is being documented complete control and the space they need to make music whilst all the technical minutiae and problem solving is taken care of.

As an active musician himself, he plays in the Brisbane based band Idylls.

His recording style has evolved naturally from his dedication to and love for music. Chris lives and breathes his work.
