The guts of a 1965 Ampex reel to reel tape recorder.

Recording Art Music is the website and blog of Murray State University’s Recording Services. Recording Services is not a commercial facility and is not open to the public. As part of Murray State’s Department of Music, Recording Services records all Department of Music calendar events, audio for university-related radio and television broadcasts, and other selected sessions deemed of high educational value to our student interns.

Murray State University music faculty and music students may request to have their performances recorded by emailing:

We also created a blog with the intention of providing information and resources to music educators, music students, and anyone else who has an interest in making the best possible recordings of their musical endeavors. We hope you find something here that helps you imagine new possibilities for reproducing the sounds you, your ensemble, or your students create. Thanks for dropping in!
