Composing unique music for film, brands, TV and other projects

The John Hardy Music studio includes the recording & production studio, office and archive, in the busy Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff.

The studio brings together the latest high-spec digital equipment with a unique collection of vintage, ethnic, classical and folk instruments, from an Appalachian dulcimer to a 1967 Hammond C3; a pedal-powered harmonium to a gemshorn, rare hand drums and vintage synths.

Unique location-recorded sounds add to the palette, with the Hinterland soundtrack including specially made and processed recordings of branches and twigs being scraped, struck and snapped.
