The Studio

Nothing But Air Studio, located at 40 Frost St in Williamsburg Brooklyn, is equipped to serve as a limited live-room recording studio or production suite. It is also the home of a creative team who can assist at any stage of writing, recording, mixing or production.

We strive to cultivate a comfortable environment conducive to both creativity and productivity. The integration of digital flexibility with tried and true classic analog quality allows us to work fast without compromising an artistic vision.

Being musicians and performers ourselves, we understand how important experimentation is. Whether running soft synths through tubes and tape delays, digitally bit crushing live recorded drums or simply recording an acoustic guitar with a classic ribbon mic, there is no wrong way to get the right sound.

Aaron Copland Hyzen

Working as a producer, engineer and multi-instrumentalist in Brooklyn, Aaron has been performing, composing and recording music professionally in New York City for the past ten years.

Specializing in acoustic and electric guitar, composition, mixing and analog synthesis, he strives to conjure bold sounds and unique textures in modern music. At home on stage or in the studio Aaron is excited to make music every day and continue a daily practice of contributing to the larger artistic community in New York and beyond.

When he isn’t exploring telecasters and minimoogs Aaron is an avid cook, comedy snob, NYCFC supporter, tequila + fernet + calamansi enthusiast and much to his own surprise, an unrepentant Masterpiece Mystery nerd.
