PavMusic Studios with Ian Pav as Producer

The PavMusic studio "The Production Pit" has been established to provide a working environment for Ian Pav that is comfortable, familiar and provides a trusted space to achieve the best results he can for a client.

A lot of resources have gone into making this studio & its resources what it is.

  • multitaskingThe studio has been professionally designed and built with quality materials and to a high level of specification. It not only looks good, it sounds good and feels right.
  • The studio encorporates an acoustically designed sound control area for analysis, arranging, composing, editing or mixing with a vocal/instrument room to record individuals, over-dubbing instruments or multi-tracking when needed.
  • The surrounding grounds provide an environment that is conducive to assisting the creative flow while peaceful and private. 

The Resource Network - On top of the Production Pit studio, Ian 

  • Can access arrangements with a number of other studios and facilties where there may be a specific bit of gear needed (such as a large grand piano) or other specific reason.
    A remote recording setup allowing us to capture a live gig or go on location, if required for a project.
  • As well as Ian's own talents as vocalist, arranger, sound designer, multi-instrumentalist ...he has access to a wide network of top level musicians and singers (whether in studios or remotely) for clients projects (and at surprisingly good rates).  Obviously guitarists, pianists, singers and similar can be sourced pretty easily, but even finding those with the right genre skills to suit your project can be a hassle (no artist can do all styles at the same level) ...and what if you need a sousaphone, Uileann pipes, bodhran, harp or ????  Not just because you can..but because its needed- that's the goal and the purpose of our network and the network's network - satisfying the need within the project to give it that exponential edge.
  • And as part of the overall set up - The Musicians Retreat BnB can provide accommodation if available at reasonable rates ( check out the package page.

But, while a studio is a very nice and 'known' place to have and work in -  is just a place!  Like the gear, instruments, software or networks we can draw on ----- they are all just a part of the tools that allow us to do our job and give you results that meet, and often exceed, expectations.  

In the end it comes down to the person -  their knowledge and also their experience, their talents, vision and ears -  and what they can do for you. 

Our main production service utilises Ian's skills as a producer for your project and the studio (and network for specific areas such as recording, mixing and/or editing your project if requested and it 'fits').

Ian says "My main aim in all cases is to help bring idea, vision, dream, message in a work into reality (in a way that's accetable to intended recipients and the end purpose)". Ian Pav is an ‘old skool’ producer, passionate about helping clients achieve the best they possibly can. Ian's background can be seen under the relevant tabs

Ian says "The art is in looking at my own interpretation of the emotion I find something that is universal in its appeal. At times this can mean feeling the message even more than what is being actually said. When emotion hits music properly – effectiveness is exponential. Understanding what the song is about to start with but then working outside the genre, working purely with a goal to make the listener feel something freedom – allowing me to work in almost any genre, any song, any language – anywhere."

So whatever you situation or location need - Ian and PavMusic can probably assist.

What people are saying 

"I have been a recording song writer/musician for over 30 years. With the digital studios there are now many, many good studio engineers out there that can record and pull a good sound. Ian is certainly one of them, with years of varied project experience. The thing that makes him stand out is his work as a producer... willing to hear a song and its' potential, rather than just recording what the artist brings to the table. He invests in his projects, and sometimes it is hard to remember he isn't a part of the band. That care factor is crucial for me and my projects. Thanks Ian for the work so far, and looking forward to the songs we have yet to record." Michael Woodrow (Shinbone STar, Centreville, The 50 Project)

"It was a real treat to work with Ian. He has the ability to hear the layers not yet heard and produce it! I felt comfortable and supported as an artist and am looking forward to working with him in the future!" Monique Reeves, Sydney

"On the three occasions we have recorded with him, Ian has made the recording process smooth, enjoyable and easy. From the minute he greeted us with a warm smile, to receiving our high quality recordings, he has been in great communication, and a great mentor. Paired with the high quality set up and his vast experience, Ian let's you take the recording process at your own pace, and does not provide any judgements, making for a truly valuable session. We are very much looking forward to working with Ian again."  Brooke & Harry, Duo from the Mornington Peninsula

 "I loved the production Pavmusic created around my songs. It is so exciting to hear a song you have written on your guitar, take shape into a full piece of music." Derryth Nash, Canberra

"In 2015/16, I had the pleasure of working with Ian Pav as he helped me to record a series of Guided Meditations for my website. Prior to meeting Ian, I had never stepped inside a recording studio before. However, Ian was very professional and made me feel very comfortable, which helped me to relax into the creative process. His work ethic is amazing and he is old school in terms of how he treats you as a person. Ian is an absolute delight to work with as he is very patient and efficient and he has a healthy sense of humour as well. I highly recommend Ian to anyone who is looking for a Music Producer/Sound Editor or Music Mentor. He is just a gem. Thanks Ian." Dalene Knowles. Healthy Minds Holistic Services

"Hey Ian, just wanted to say that it was a pleasure working with you on my song Getaway.
I had a great time recording in your studio and I'm really happy with the resulting production. Would definitely work with Pavmusic again. You've been a great mentor by giving me great advice. All the best"

"We are so pleased with the professionalism you have shown in this project of recording my husband playing his beloved Steinway. It has been amazing to watch Peter as he has listened to the recordings as I can see him finally realise how well he plays.  Although he tries to give the piano all of the credit!
Peter is a perfectionist and I think you have been a good match for him as your work and attention to detail has been exceptional. Thank you from us both and hopefully from our family and friends who will now have access to Peter's music whenever they want it. A great legacy I think."  D.C. McCrae
