Making records in the modern age is a thrilling proposition. Never before have we had access to so many amazing tools to create with, as well as delivery systems to get new music to the listeners instantly. With modern music fans possessing such broad musical tastes, and instant access to their favorite material, creating engaging music has never been more important.

With all these amazing tools, many artists are split between working with a more traditional Producer/Engineer in the studio, or just learning to do it themselves. While there are advantages to both approaches, I believe that making music in a vacuum is not where most great music comes from, and that learning from those with experience can make a very long journey much more successful and enjoyable.

The goal of this Patreon is to facilitate the creation of high quality recorded music, whether it be in the studio or the bedroom.


My name is Colin Christian (also known as Wires & Noise). I am a life-long musician and, for the last 12 years, have dedicated my life to the art of making records. More specifically, helping bands and artists make the best records they can, in whatever ways they deem necessary.
Over the years, I have operated a number of small, self-financed recording studios as well as freelancing at various commercial studios in Northern Nevada & California. I am currently the head engineer of Wires & Noise Audio Services in Reno, Nevada. I have also spent my fair share of time working in bedrooms, garages, warehouses, and other assorted spaces, learning how to make my own records and teaching others to do the same by sharing my experience and knowledge.

In this new music world, along with all the new tools and options for content delivery, we have run in to a few economic issue:
Studios and studio time are expensive.
Finding time to consult, pro-bono, with budding artist/engineers can be difficult
The weight of funding albums falls on the bands now more than ever.
The general public no longer buys music as they once did. 

So here's what we're doing- 


  Artists/Bands - Interested in working with me at Wires & Noise Audio Services (or elsewhere)? You can purchase "Studio Blocks" on a monthly basis to help fund your project over time, instead of trying to come up with large deposits/payments. Find the monthly rate that works for you, and when you've accrued the appropriate number of Blocks, you can schedule your Recording/Mix sessions. 

Artists/Engineers - Need help with your ongoing project? Whether it be designing your own recording space, recording or mixing records for yourself or others, I would be happy to help. 
Simply choose the level of consultation you feel you will need, sign up or the monthly fee, and I'm all yours. If you're not sure how much help you'll need, contact me directly and we can discuss your situation.

Fans/Patrons -  Whether you are a fan, a musician/engineer yourself, or you simply want to help keep music, recording studios, and studio culture, alive, then I could always use your help. Your monthly contribution will go a long way to help insure the health and longevity of both Wires & Noise Audio Services as a place for musicians to gather and create, and to my own ability to work with musicians in all capacities. Over time I will be creating live in-studio streams and videos, exclusive content and early access to new releases from the artists I work with.
If there are enough contributions in this form, I will offer free recording time to a band/artist when there is down time at the studio. (all contributing Patrons will be allowed to nominate artists and vote for who is selected) 

Is there a band or artist you'd like to help? Choose a monthly plan to purchase "Studio Blocks" that will go towards helping them complete their project. 

Hopefully all of these ideas combined can help foster a more productive and communal music scene and facilitate a lot more great art. Thank you for your time and consideration!
