Recording Art Music is the website and blog of Murray State University’s Recording Studio. The studio is a non-commercial facility and is not open to the public. As part of the Department of Music, the studio 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 students.

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

It is also the home of the Recording Techniques series of audio courses at Murray State.

We maintain a blog as well, 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!
