UK: Composer Karim Succar is the proud owner of a new Parisian studio, writes David Davies. Situated a mere ten minutes from the centre of Paris, the facility was created by UK acoustic and technical design company White Mark, and features a large control room equipped with a 32-fader Pro Tools D Control console, a Neve BCM10 analogue console, Exigy 5.1 monitoring with eight surrounds, a White Mark acoustically transparent screen and a variety of analogue outboard gear, among other equipment.

Housed in a building that Succar describes as a "concrete cube", the facility also incorporates a large live room with natural daylight and a lounge area.

Considering the particular challenges of the 12-week project, White Mark's acoustician, David Bell, tells PSN-e that Succar had "very specific requirements for isolation. The studio is located at the back of a residential block of concrete construction, and he wanted to be able to work in the middle of the night without fear of disturbing anyone else."

The completed facility has met with the satisfaction of both Succar and White Mark itself. "We're very pleased with it - it's a lovely space to work in," says Bell.

Operating under the name of KariSm Productions, the new studio provides a permanent base for Succar in which to compose and produce music for commercials and TV programmes.
