About
Centered around a small team of dedicated professionals, The Tiny Studio is a young company in the music industry with fresh ideas, always seeking for new challenges!

We do mainly acoustic music recordings, sound designs, but also multimedia creations such as video, web design, graphic design and photography.

The fact that we are tiny allows us to quickly shape and adapt our structure, team and equipment to precisely meet our client's requests. We simply want to respect time, budget and artistic visions of the people we work with.

The Tiny Studio was created by Karl Ancia. Recording engineer at the national opera house of Belgium, Le Théâtre de la Monnaie, he has a great experience in surround sound recordings of opera and classical music ensembles for CD, DVD and live broadcast on TV or web streaming.

Karl works also as a sound designer and video engineer for theatre and opera productions. His personal taste for contemporary music made him work with various artists such as Leo Hussain, L'Ensemble Modern, or La Fura dels Baus with whom he realized the sound design of the acclaimed Le Grand Macabre opera. He also made the sound design for Cendrillon by Laurent Pelly, Pelléas & Mélisande by Pierre Audi, La Dispute by Benoit Mernier or Il Trovatore by Dmitri Tcherniakov... and was involved in the video of Cendrillon by Stefan Gögler or Ivo van Hove's Idoménéo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Music Recording
CLASSIC

Classical or acoustic music recordings is our core business. Our recordings reproduce with the upmost fidelity the sound of your instrument or ensemble.

This being said, when desired, we love to test and create new sonorities with you. Contemporary music and new waves of composition, including electronic instruments, offer new possibilities of localization and soundscapes.

To obtain the best sounding recordings, we only work with carefully chosen high profile equipment. We record in digital with a high sample and most of the time, our recordings are in surround sound. We love to do that even if the final product is for now a stereo mix: we never know.

It is important that you feel as much comfortable as possible during the recording process. We want you to have the opportunity to choose with us the place where you want us to record. It could be almost everywhere: it just needs to be silent and sound great. For instance we can record in a hall, a church, a studio, a nice sounding theater, a silent wood at night...

Of course, we love to record live concerts. Our mobile recording set allows us easy and fast installation of a 64 tracks recording system in whatever places.

POP

Pop music contains all music genres that requires a strong production process like Jazz, Rock, Folk, Electronic... More than just a recording / mixing infrastructure, we offer a know-how and production services. Our goal is to make your music sounds the way you like it with the added value of professional advices on compositions or arrangements.

Thanks to strong relationship with different studios, we can provide several kind of recording spaces. We love to find the right place with you wherever it may be.

We only work with carefully chosen high-profile devices. We provide vintage mixing desks, great effects, backline equipment and top-quality microphones.

And for live recordings, we have a mobile 64 tracks recording set that allows us easy and fast installation in any place.

Sounds in video is certainly as important as the image. It brings the audience where you want to, create and emphasis their feeling.
