brandnewnoise by richard upchurch is dedicated to making handcrafted sound gadgets for all kids, musicians, lovers, and aliens looking to explore. We are a proud internship provider for Brooklyn-based organizations such as Good Shepherd Services and Exalt Youth which elevate expectations of personal success and self-sufficiency for inner-city students ages 15-19.
Each recorder is handmade in Brooklyn, NY out of American sustainable wood.
Here is the story:
What do my mother, RZA (Wu Tang Clan), The Black Keys, Jessy Greene, Bon Iver, my nephew, and David Byrne have in common? They all love brandnewnoise sound gadgets!
I built 1 for my nephew.
I built 5 for his teachers (from show and tell).
I built 10 for my first online store.
I am still building them today.
We have been featured in Vogue, Southern Living, TimeOut New York, Architectural Digest, Better Living Through Design, Wired Magazine, Moogfest, Vice, and other publications.
