Prawn & Spanner studio

My name is Christian Pyle. I’m a musician, record producer, artist, composer & sound engineer.  

I have worked in many studios around the globe and am now based in my own studio, located on my property in the Byron Bay Hinterland. The studio sounds and feels fantastic, and is probably one of the most inspiring recording environments you will encounter.


So far this year, I've worked with William Creighton, Headland (again), and pumped out another Acre album. I've also done albums for Andrew Tumason (Woven Talon ), an Ep for Peter More from Oh Whitney, Jimmy Dowling, a Classical album for Romy Agram, Soundtrack for Iceworld by Murray Paterson plus the earlier Headland album with Murray, the other talented Murray Johnson & Bermuda Shades, and Walker & Cove. 

Also playing live with Tex Perkins, Lucie Thorne, and Jez Mead.

There is a shitload of instruments, amps, mics and recording gear from my years of working with music, and some of the pictures on the site attempt to exhibit this.

Clients are always happy, and I’m constantly working on something in the studio (see client list, right).

I also work on my own material in several outlets including soundtracks and the following bands:

Oscillator A with Cye Wood: this is my most current focus, two multi-instrumentalists/studio masters making soundtracks, no rules apply, not for the faint-hearted, some fucking great music.

I may also be found playing guitar in bands whose music and company I enjoy such as:


Tex Perkins Band

The Tendons

The Sixth Floor

The Re-Mains

Mechanical Egg with Lenny Bastiaans & Loius Biddett

In the past, I have released albums under my own name and under the names “Acre” and “Ghost Mountain”. Most of these albums are available online, although physical copies may still exist of some releases.

All inquiries and/or bookings -


The majority of my mastering is done by Michael Worthington who can be found at

Michael is also a very good friend of mine.
