Metropolis Studios announces 20th anniversary party5 May 2009
UK: The celebratory shindig is scheduled to take place on Wednesday May 13, reports PSN-e. Since it was established in May 1989, Metropolis has gone on to earn a reputation as a world class facility for recording, mixing, mastering and post-production. Landmark albums to have been produced at the facility include Scott Walker’s Tilt (1995), The Verve’s Urban Hymns (1997) and Amy Winehouse’s Back To Black (2006).
The special party will feature a diverse selection of performances, to be held within Studio A and the atrium mezzanine bar and restaurant areas. Metropolis will also auction off a selection of prestigious items on the night, including a limited edition Eddie Kramer print, with all proceeds going to Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy charity.
Reflecting on the studio’s past and looking ahead to its future, managing director Ian Brenchley commented: "Metropolis has always been one of the top studios in the world, featuring cutting-edge technology, a wealth of expertise and a creative hub location for the music industry and iconic artists alike. In our 20th year, we plan to take things one step further by starting a label, adding multiple new services and, in short, put the rock’n’roll back into the music industry… not a moment too soon, I might add."
