“V.I.T.R.I.O.L.: ‘Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem,’ or… ‘Visit the interior of the Earth; by rectification thou shalt find the hidden stone.'” —17th Century alchemical text

VITRIOL Studios is a professional project studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Featuring much of the same classic audio equipment that can be found in major studios around the world, I provide a unique method of soundcrafting that captures the warmth and character of vintage analog gear, while maintaining the precision and quality that modern technology affords. My skills and experience are the perfect match for the singer/songwriter, solo artist, DJ/electronic artist, or aspiring band looking to take their idea to the next level. I also offer track/stem mixing (Logic & Ableton currently), premastering, and remixing services.
