A live take of Thank You Scientist’s “Mr. Invisible” was performed and recorded using 100% solar power with the Sun Lab Studio at Schuster’s Poultry Farm in Lakewood, NJ. Schuster’s farm is a no-kill dairy farm with some of the happiest, well cared-for animals in New Jersey.
While on tour in Berlin, Germany, Matthew C. Brown and Kevin Grossman (Homeless Apians) linked up with Christoph Klemke (Feline and Strange), to record this song on the roof of his building, the “Music Center”.
You can see no solar panels in this video, because the whole building, and much of the surrounding area, is hooked into a grid powered by solar, wind, and water.

The hotly anticipated Sun Lab recording session featuring We Used to Cut the Grass is now available!
Led by composer/bassist Cody McCorry, the ensemble We Used to Cut The Grass recorded their first Sun Lab Session on the hottest day in July of 2015 at the historic Camp Evans Military Base in Wall, New Jersey.
Starting with J.S. Bach’s classic BWV 245, McCorry leads the group through his original composition, featuring solos by some of the most innovative musicians on the scene today.
This is a tale of espionage, biological experimentation, true love and trombones.
Last weekend at the Asbury Park Music in Film Festival was a great time! Not only did we get to see some great films, our video, “Live from the Sun”, directed by Jon Francis, won the award for Best NJ Documentary!
If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look (and listen)!
SunLab Studio was recently featured on PBS/NJTV’s Driving Jersey program with the creators’ progressive rock outfit Karmic Juggernaut. The band played a completely solar-powered set on the rooftop of Langosta Lounge in Asbury Park, NJ to bewildered, yet excited beachgoers. The 30-minute television special features interviews with the band and others detailing the inception and process of using the power of the sun to make music and documenting it. Check it out below!
