Welcome to the Ether  

January 2019

It is not our preferred state of being, but since we can't be everywhere at once it will have to suffice.


2182 Recording Company is a collaboration between Robert V Anderson and Ryan J Bruce.  We share an interest in sounds that engage beyond just listening.  These sounds are rooted in a history of creation in Arizona that involves people that were inspired by people who do things differently.  If what you hear and see inspires you, then we hope you engage with us.
