We've just begun a recording project that entails multiple sessions. So far Biosonic Recording is an efficiently and professionally run studio - and to date we trust and appreciate the quality of service and expertise rendered.

Bryan helped my daughter with a recording for her musical theatre production. Not only was he professional, he was kind and patient with my nervous eleven year old. We have never been to a recording studio and by the time we were finished she didnt't want to leave. We would highly recommend Bryan and will plan to use his services in the future.

His experience speaks for itself! He was very prompt with communication, willing to work with my schedule changes, and provided a lot of helpful insight into making music and recording. I also appreciate how he uses both digital and analog when mixing and mastering. Helps you feel comfortable in the studio, and walks through the process with you. Definitely recommend working with Pierre!
