Happy new year to all and what a busy one it has been so far!
We had a great response to our Winter recording offer with London-based metal band “Cuter in the Dark” coming in, and staying in due to the heavy snow! The guys did a 3-track EP and went away smiling despite the cold. We also had local band “Crimson Shadow” in to record 5 tracks and saw a welcome return from “Something Happened in Tutorial”, although they now go by the name “The Croft”. Be sure to check out pictures and videos from their session soon.
Our offer also enticed in some other new talent. Regular client Nai-T came back for some programming and production work and brought along another artist Eksel, who liked the facilities so much that he booked 4 days!
We also have 3 new bands using the facilities after-hours for practice which seems to be very popular, get in touch if you are interested in practice space for your band.
The new studio setup is working very well and we have totally re-patched the control room to make recording in the other rooms even easier. We are also able to record more in a day than ever before as we can get a lot more separation with the extra rooms so more instruments can be tracked live.
We are due back at Newport Free Grammar School in February for their production of “Oliver!”, as well as their Battle of the Bands and Swedish exchange in March. We also have new clients producing a series of video lectures, so we have had green screens and lights installed and Chris has been plunging the depths of Final Cut.
Be sure to check back soon for new pictures and videos from sessions, as well as tracks on our demos page. See you in February!
