Our vision

Flow Studios was created to offer an inspirational residential setting in which to create and record music.
To build Flow Studios, Composer and sound artist, Luke Aaron Clark, undertook a three-year meticulous studio construction under the design and guidance of acoustician, John Brandt.  Located in a truly unique setting with boutique style accommodation, our state-of the-art recording studio combines beautiful tracking and mixing spaces with world-class equipment.

Luke is passionate about helping artists to realise their creative vision. His ethos is that a good recording begins from the moment an artist walks through the doors of their chosen recording studio. Having travelled extensively across the world, participating in multiple artist and composer residencies, Luke knows first-hand that how an artist feels about the environment and space they record in, plays a significant role at inspiring creativity, improving workflow and refocusing energy.

His vision now, is to provide an inspired, professional and productive environment, where artists can maintain artistic integrity, whilst producing music worthy of critical and commercial success.
Whether artists are escaping the frenzy of a large city or the distractions of a busy lifestyle, this outstanding commercial residential recording facility offers artists the ability to wake up and get straight to work.
Our team are on-hand and always happy to provide further information on request.
