Have you been searching for a unique sound for ages? Then a visit to our studios, a workplace for electro-acoustic music, could certainly be worthwhile. In Studio 1 you move among analog equipment from the 50s and 60s. In Studio 2 you will mostly find synthesizers from the 70s and 80s. The very first electronic sounds were made with instruments you will find here in the studios. Working with this hardware will make you listen to, and work with music in a different, unique way. Instead of working with a mouse and screen you work hands-on with real instruments. It is a highly intuitive work method that produces a surprising, challenging result again and again. This makes working in our studios a personal adventure for everyone.
When working in the studios, you can always rely on one of our employees, who are makers themselves. They can offer you both sound-technical and artistic support. Composers, producers and musicians, but also all other interested people are welcome to rent the studios for one or more day-parts. You can always take the recorded sounds with you for further (digital) processing.
Blawan: “The machines here are 70 years old, but in perfect condition. They are much more stable than the gear produced today. So technically it makes sense to use these machines – the first generation of electronics”.
Looking for that unique sound
Countless national but especially international artists, including Blawan, Daedelus, The Analogues, Kate NV, British Murder Boys (Regis & Surgeon), Terrance Dixon, BJ Nilson, Jonny Nash, Andrea Taeggi, Albert van Abbe and Jameszoo have already used the studios to find their unique sound.
Address: Prins Bernhardstraat 6, 5211 HE ‘s-Hertogenbosch
