National Recording Studios Open Day
Happening on May 29. Lotsa studios, open across the country. Event co-ordinated by NZ Musician magazine. Nice one.
"Saturday May 29 will see a fresh addition to the annual NZ Music Month calendar with the first national Recording Studios Open Day.
Between midday and 4pm, a variety of professional studios around the country will open their front doors to anyone interested in taking a look inside. Owners, engineers and staff will be on hand to answer any questions about the studio and the recording, mixing and record mastering processes.
The afternoon provides a rare opportunity for musicians, artist managers, music students (and those expected to fund new recordings) to find out more about local studio facilities, as well as the distinct audio quality benefits of recording in a professional environment.
Participating studios range from the high-end and long established likes of York Street and Stebbing Recording Centre in Auckland, to Palmerston North’s vibrant and incredibly low-cost community facility known as The Stomach. Entry is free and each studio (Stebbing visitors will need to pre-registration online) will offer its own programme of information and entertainment.
