Badge-wo-tagline_small A Common Chord:  A five-part feature series is inspired by South Central Indiana’s thriving music scene. From venues, to record stores, musicians to recording studios, we lend you an intimate look into the lives of local musicians and those who support them.

Part Three: Recording Studios

In this segment, correspondent Ryan Dawes spotlights 3 local recording studios:  Russian Recording, Farm Fresh Studios, and Mid-West Audio Recording. As their sole form of income, local entrepreneurs have proven that owning and operating a recording studio in Bloomington, Indiana is viable occupation.  The genres of music professionally recorded here are diverse, as are the budgets of those seeking to cut a record. While these business owners are somewhat detached from economic hardship experienced by other industries, shifts in the national and local music industry have changed the way in which people can make money recording music. From these Bloomington-based businesses, we learn how the community of musicians and producers impacts this small but stable industry in South Central Indiana.
