Dear Sound Gallery friends, clients and fellow musicians,
We can’t wait to welcome you all back to Sound Gallery studios which is now equipped with a vast array of microphones, social distancing measures and our new upgraded ventilation system as part of a robust COVID-19 policy designed to keep everyone safe whilst they return to the studio.
The music industry, including recording and rehearsal studios, has been hit incredibly hard over the past 12 months and our team has been working behind the scenes to provide a safe environment and new services to help musicians reignite their creativity, start new projects and complete existing ones. We are here to help you start making music again!
Although, we are still able to deliver remote services in terms of tutorials, mixing and mastering, many of you have been asking when it would be possible to come to the studio again, so, here is our roadmap to re-opening:
From 29 March we will be re-opening the studio for 1:1 bookings operating Mondays-Fridays, 10am-6pm
From 12 April we will be (hopefully) extending our schedule to include later and weekend bookings.
From 17 May we will be able to accommodate groups in accordance with government guidelines in terms of indoor activity, following the rule of 6 or 2 households.
This Spring, we are launching Virtual MainStage, a new video music channel hosted by Sound Gallery in association with hungersleep records and Integrity records to help musicians create new digital content so they can continue to promote their music to new audiences. Virtual Mainstage will showcase New Releases – Music Videos and Live Sessions recorded and filmed at the newly revamped Studio 2 which will be promoted on Sound Gallery’s Youtube & IGTV channels. We are really pleased to announce that we will be working with Wiseman Productions on this new initiative.
We are also proud to announce that Nick Tarbitt, co-founder of Integrity Records, one of the U.K.’s longest running truly independent record labels is delivering Music Industry Advice sessions as part of our educational programmes: SiMPTI Digital & Raptors.
These initiatives are part of Sound Gallery’s Digital Future programme and have been made possible thanks to the Culture Recovery Fund which aims to support Sound Gallery to face the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and to ensure that we have a sustainable future as a culturally significant organisation locally, nationally and internationally.
Stay safe and sound 🙂 and thank you for supporting independent businesses and studios.
Sound Gallery Studios is a participant in the ‘We’re Good to Go’ and ‘Safe Travels’ schemes, which means that we have taken the required action to welcome members of the public in line with Government and Public Health England guidelines.
