The Place

Studio du Maine Noir is a small boutique recording studio located in a beautiful property in the South West of France. It was originally created for my band and always imagined as a creative cocoon, a music lab. As I started producing and mixing, I opened up the place to the artists I was working with. The studio is surrounded by woods and totally isolated. The place has an incredible atmosphere and nights are wonderfully quiet.


Since my teenage years I have been interested in unusual gear. Slowly, but surely, I bought guitars, amps, pres, tape delays, and ended up with a strange arsenal of machines to make and record music with. I'm not a sound engineer, I do everything by instinct and this studio is not organized in a formal way. It's a sweet mess where you can do whatever you want, experiment, make noise, loud, quietly. It's all dedicated to the art you're making.
