Recording Studio

Christopher Dyson established Aliens and Strangers Studios in 2006. Where Christopher has recorded a 6-song EP and demos for “AfterLife” a Christian rock band (facebook.com/AfterlifeBandRocks or afterlifeband.bandcamp.com), two full-length CDs for Sidney, Nebraska alternative rock artists “Terra Nova”, and demos for local artists like Brent Jeppson.

At Aliens And Strangers Music we can accommodate anything from acoustic folk to speed metal in our recording facilities. Whatever the project, a single song to a full-blown CD, we have it covered.

Our digital studio is a two-room facility. A control room and a live room for recording guitars, drums, etc. We are able to record 16 simultaneous tracks with a maximum of 48 recorded tracks with effects.

Base rate is $40 per hour. Contact us for more information and project pricing.
