Huge Congratulations to the extremely talented filmmaker Don Percy for winning 2nd place in the 2013 Tropfest with his short film Makeover. The crowd favourite of the night was not intentionally conceived or written as a silent film, yet ‘Makeover’ contains just four lines of dialogue. Stating that “there simply wasn’t a need for many words”, Don points to his composer our very own Robyn Payne and sound designer Stephen Renfree as being “monumentally important in making the visuals work to their full potential”. Enjoy it HERE

ADMUSIC GETS YAMAHA C6 GRAND PIANO

17 Mar 2008
It's with great pleasure that we can finally announce the arrival of our new Yamaha C6 conservatory grand piano.

This piano is a stunner, both to play & to record, with a tone more reminiscent of Steinway than a Yamaha.

There's not many studios around which are fortunate enough to have such a fine piano, so call us if you'd like to discuss using it on your next project.
