Budget Strings for the Music Producer

Live strings recorded for your project

If you want live strings recorded for your latest song, CD, film score, TV ad or game but just can’t afford the artist and studio fees you’ve come to the right place.  In our custom built home studio we can arrange, record and multi-track strings to meet your needs.  So, anything from an intimate cello solo to a full string section.  Indie bands and artists are our specialty.  We also work with anyone who wants their special recording enhanced by live strings.

We call this video “Five Shades of Careless Whisper”.  Its a humorous 3.5-minute glimpse at how we work.

There’s nothing like live, especially if you need a dynamic or soulful string sound.  If you’re inspired to enquire about our services don’t hesitate to give us a call or email.

How much do you charge?

We charge by the hour for our services – just $50AUD per hour for all arranging, playing, recording and mixing.  Violin, viola and cello.  As you can see from our promo we can also create full backings using the latest sound modules like BFD drums, Trilian bass and First Call Horns.  We can also phone-a-friend and link you up with Adelaide’s top session musicians.

Once we’ve got a clear idea of what you want from us we’ll give you a quote and work from there.  We love working with great musicians from around the world and look forward to being a part of your creative process.

Where have you played?

We’ve had a wealth of orchestral experience.  Between us we’ve played with Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Adelaide Symphony, Sydney Opera House Orchestra, Tasmanian Symphony, West Australia Symphony, Main Event Orchestra, Bolshoi Ballet Orchestra, Phil Hartl Session strings and more.  We can also book a live string section for events within Adelaide, South Australia.

Chart writing

Brenton’s crazy musical medley “Beatles Berserka” was described by legendary drummer and bandleader Doug Tann as “The best arrangement I’ve played of anything, ever!”

Brenton wrote his first string quartet arrangement in the late 80s.  Since then he has expanded his knowledge in all areas of arrangement.  From a cello solo to a 19 piece big band with vocalists, Brenton will make the music work for you.

If you’d like to enquire about having music arranged for live bands – especially suitable for cruise ship guest entertainers – give us a  call or email.
