Ortberg, known for his work with area musicians such as Amanda Jay and My Grandma’s Cardigan , is building out a space for his Blue Lagoon Recording Room .
The 500-square-foot studio is being built in Suite B of the Gill Center Two complex at 3169 Wellner Drive NE. It's next door to the Rochester Music Academy .
“This is my taking a step up from basement recording to create a more professional studio,” he said. “When I’m recording, I won’t have to waltz people through my laundry room any more.”
Ortberg, who is a music teacher at Rochester’s Pure Rock Studios , has been recording in the Med City since 2016. Now he’s ready to start building his business.
The new studio will feature a control room and a line room to offer more control during recording than is possible with his basement set-up.
He will be able to offer professional audio recording and mixing as well as providing music video and photography services.
Ortberg hopes to have Blue Lagoon up and running by late October or early November.
