Rex Hardware

Hi, I’m Rex Hardware, Ballarat’s chief Music Archivist, Sound engineer and Events producer in Ballarat Victoria Australia.

My work documenting Ballarat’s music scene has seen me involved in recording over 5000 artists over 30 years.

I have worked teaching and co-ordinating Live Production programs at The School of Mines Ballarat, University of Ballarat and Federation University Australia from 1996 to 2017 and was presented with a 20 year teaching award for motivating successful production teams in education.

The “Live on Lydiard” Concert Series at the University was recognized as Australia’s longest running music webcast and operated from March 2002 to August 2017.  The series produced online video 7 years before Youtube commenced.
In total, the production output from my work has generated over 2.3 million views on my 7 Youtube Channels of material all recorded here in Ballarat.

I am currently working freelance in the Entertainment Industry as well as creating my own TV studio and business – H-Squared Studios- Hardware & Honger.
We operate out of The Main Bar in Bakery Hill as well as the ability to offer live broadcasting and recording in outside locations on request.

Get in contact if you want to discuss your recording needs.
