Operated by mastering engineer and musician Nathan Moody, Obsidian Sound provides mastering and mix review services to independent artists and labels with unique visions, with projects ranging from albums and singles to film scores and sound art installations.
What makes Obsidian Sound different is its unique approach to understanding artists’ artistic intent, and the amount of feedback and guidance provided to every client.
Obsidian Sound specializes in all manner of projects that might sit on the edges, boundaries, and overlaps of established genres: electronic, ambient, lo-fi, modular synthesizer music, noise, experimental, sound art, contemporary avant garde, noise rock, industrial techno, indie pop, melodic punk, crossover metal, psychedelic rock, and much more.
Obsidian Sound is proud to count hundreds of independent artists and producers as its clients, from Hainbach to Howie B, from members of Sonic Youth to Scanner, not to mention scores of independent artists embarking on their first releases. The results have been released by labels and entities such as the estate of Allen Ginsberg, SA (Spitfire Audio) Recordings, Rhodium Publishing, Mystery Circles, Chase Bliss Records, Errorgrid, Pelagic Records, Aural Canyon, Jacktone Records, Flag Day Recordings, Bloxham Tapes, Lost Tribe Sound, the YouTube Audio Library, and many more.
