Live Recording Sessions

Kim Cass, Noah Preminger and Elan Mehler



One day in the studio.
One hand-cut, mastered lacquer.


Experience a live studio recording session at the heart of Newvelle, Eastside Sound in New York City. You'll spend the day with world class musicians in the studio as they record a completely new project and partake in a recording master class with Marc Urselli, GRAMMY Award–winning mixing and recording engineer.

Following the day in the studio, every participant will receive one hand-cut lacquer sent to them of the fully mastered tracks recorded that day. A priceless record unavailable for sale, these lacquer are each hand-cut by Newvelle’s mastering engineer in a delicate process that etches the audio-signal-modulated groove onto the surface of a special lacquer-coated disc.


Eastside Sound is an intimate studio in the heart of New York City’s Lower East Side. Space is very limited—only a handful of participants will be able to attend each session. Live Recording Sessions are $2,000 per participant and include:

  • Attendance at one Live Recording Session at Eastside Sound in NYC
  • One hand-cut lacquer of the day’s recording
  • Recording, mixing, and mastering master class by Marc Urselli, GRAMMY Award-winning mixing and recording engineer
  • Catered meals, snacks, and wine reception


9am - 10am: Catered breakfast.
10am - 2pm: Musicians record and participants either join in the control room or in the live room with headphones where they can see the action up close and hear everything the musicians are hearing.
2pm - 3pm: Catered lunch with the musicians.
3pm - 4pm: Mixing and recording engineer master-class with Marc Urselli.
Marc will give an hour demonstration as he mixes one song and describes his mixing technique with examples of rough mixes, mixes, and masters played through his world class ADAM monitors.
4pm - 8pm: Wine reception and light hors d’oeuvres.
This marks the formal end of the day, but participants are welcome to stay while Marc continues to mix the record with input from the musicians and guests.
