Ghostgum Audio is a purpose built, acoustically designed recording space, with a fully equipped recording and sound mixing studio facility and other recording spaces for professional, high quality music and audio recording sessions.
Our large studio space is unique in Queensland in being large enough to record a 76 piece orchestra or large acoustic ensemble such as a band or choir in a soundproof, air conditioned, acoustically treated room with a great sounding ‘live’ reverb character.
As the studio serves as a business initiative of Cannon Hill Anglican College, we have a strong educational focus with our students, who have the opportunity to experience professional recording sessions and observe professional musicians at work in a real-life situation.
This provides some unique and exceptional opportunities for our music technology and music students such as work experience or assisting in real recording sessions, where students gain experience in recording a range of ensembles, and the opportunity to perform in various ensembles in the recording studio.
